Oreo Cookies

Another fattening recipe...haha but you gotta love them!

2 devils food cake mixes
1 1/2 cups of shortening (could probably substitute with oil if you want)
4 eggs

-mix all together, roll into balls than bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes

cream cheese frosting

8 oz cream cheese
5 tbsp softened butter or margarine
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups of powdered sugar

Alfredo Sauce

This alfredo is the best! It is pretty fattening though so you may not want to have it all the time :)

melt 1 stick of butter in a pan, add 2 tbsp of cream cheese, mix well then add 1 pint of heavy cream, add 1/2 - 3/4 cups of parmesan cheese and 1 tsp of garlic salt. Stir well and let simmer for 15-20 minutes stirring every little while. I had a hard time getting mine to thicken so I added a couple teaspoons of flour or cornstarch(which I mixed with water first so it wasn't lumpy). It is really good stuff so enjoy!!

White Chilli

I have never heard of anyone not liking this. I just made this for a shower and it was a hit. It feeds 3-4 people and takes 45 min-1 hour.

3-4 chicken breasts cubed
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1Tbsp Veggie oil (sometimes more)
1 medium onion

then add....

2 cans great northern beans (rinse and drain)
2 small cans of diced green chillies
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 14oz can of chicken broth (so half and then add more if needed at the end)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup whipping cream

combine the chicken, garlic powder, veggie oil, and onion and cook in pan for 5-10 min (I did for about 5). Then combine everything else except for the sour cream and whipping cream. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 min, then add the sour cream and whipping cream. The soup will get thicker as it cools.
