  • Sweet Italian Sausage Pasta
    In a hot frying pan, add the bacon into slices and cooked over medium-low heat until the oil of the grease was made out. Continue to cook the bacon until crisp and brown.
  • Add garlic and stir until fragrant. Add sweet sausages pressing the meat out of their housing. Brown the meat evenly and break them into small pieces.
  • Now add the sun-dried tomatoes and frozen peas and mix well.
  • Continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes then add the heavy cream and chicken broth.
  • Add dried seasoning if necessary and thyme. Simmer for a minute or two and it's done.
  • Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water according to the package that suggested al dente and drain. Serve the meat sauce over pasta and give it a light toss.
  • Strawberry Cream cheese coffee cake:
    Preheat oven to 180 and grease a 9 "spring form pan round (I used heart-shaped) or a deep fluted tart pan and line with parchment paper.
  • For the cake, in a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.
    Stir in flour, baking powder and salt to make a soft dough. Spread the paste on the bottom and sides of the pan. (Batter will appear thin in the pan).
  • For the filling:
    Mix the cream cheese and remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisk well. Spread over cake base.
  • Next, place the strawberries, cut side down, pressing gently into the cheese paste and cream.
  • Bake until the top is brown and appear set, about 45-50 minutes.
