I could be featured on the Food Network Channel!


I got you going there, didn't I?











I just love my kids (and my husband too of course)!!! 
I love to cook but 2 nights ago I wasn't particularly inspired to cook dinner and we had a look in the freezer on something we could cook quick and without a lot of work. So we decided on chicken ravioli (from Costco) and I was going to put together a cheese sauce very quickly.
We had dinner and this is what my kids said" " oh mom, with this sauce you can win any contest on the food network channel!!"
Is that a compliment or what? I have to admit, it was the best cheese sauce I had made so far!
So I want to share the recipe with you. Let me know if you've tried it and liked it.
Well, the recipe doesn't have measurements as I cook to taste. And I have to warn you, you probably shouldn't eat a lot of this sauce if you're on a diet or adjust some of the ingredients to a lighter version.

* butter
* flour
* whole milk
* salt/pepper
* mustard powder
* nutmeg
* heavy whipped cream
* Philadelphia regular cream cheese
* grated parmesan
* grated swiss cheese

Melt some butter in a pan, stir in the flour and let it cook for a minute while stirring (this takes the flour taste out of the flower). Add the whole milk till sauce is nice and creamy. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, mustard powder to taste. Add in the cream cheese (again to taste, it will melt in the sauce) while stirring. Cook for a minute or 2 while stirring, then add in the parmesan and swiss cheese. If the sauce gets too thick, you can always add some more milk.
And voila, that's the recipe!

Bon appetit!
