Moody Foodie Tulsa Synopsis: My food blog started when I first met my wife. We lived in the gym. We had no children at the time and our days consisted of several hour gym sessions, hiking and making different types of protein shakes. My blog began offering these different protein shakes, workout plans, meal prep ideas and tips of fitness. I loved it! It was a direct reflection of what our life revolved around. Then, SURPRISE! A baby was on the way! The gym sessions slowed down; the protein shakes began to be replaced with home-cooked meals. I wanted my growing child and wife to have the best I could provide. So, my blog began to reflect these differences. I loved that as well. Then, our beautiful daughter was born and OH. MY. GOSH. The sleep deprivation. The lack of time. The lack of money. The lack of patience. My blog began to take on shades of quick, easy, cheap, do-able, affordable, because that was my life at that time. My wife would try my recipes one handed while feeding our newborn and my blog posts got just a bit shorter and to the point. Despite that being one of my tougher “moods”, I loved that as well. Now, my daughter is two, my wife and I feel (somewhat) back to our normal selves and I’ve been blessed to really stretch my wings of creativity and find a new “mood” I’m really loving. Fine. Dining. The design aspect, the art of plating gorgeous food, the scenery. It’s magical! On top of all that, my food is great. Like, really great. It takes talent to make what I’m making at this time. It takes finesse. But it’s so fun and I’m having the time of my life. Who knows what mood MooyFoodieTulsa will take on next? Stick around to find out! 😊 

Ingredients: 

1 package angel hair pasta
2 cups fine Creamline Lamb Chopper cheese
1 cup fine grated Sarvecchio Parmesan Sartori cheese
1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Better Than Bouillon Chicken
4 Lg Garlic Cloves (Feeds 4 people)
4 Tbsp Olive Oil
4 Tbsp salted butter

Baked Garlic (Bryan’s favorite)

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 ◦F and set a timer for 60 minutes. Step 2: Take your whole garlic clove and chop the top of the clove off. Step 3: This should expose the top parts of each clove and place in some foil. Step 4: Pour some olive oil over the clove and then push all four corners of the foil together. Step 5: The clove should be completely wrapped up and should not be exposed (this will help keep the clove from burning). Step 6: Place the cloves into a pan and place in the oven for 60 minutes. Step 7: Once the time is up, pull out of the oven and get ready for the best flavor. Oh, don’t forget these will be extremely hot so be careful! 

Pasta

Step 1: Pour 4 cups of water in a pot and heat until the water is boiling. Step 2: Add your Angel Hair pasta and let boil for about 12-14 minutes (stir occasionally). Step 3: Drain the water once the noodles are cooked through. Add 1 tbsp of butter with your noodles and stir them until the butter is melted.

Alfredo Sauce 

Step 1: Place 3 tbsp of butter in a saucepan and let it melt completely. Step 2: Pour 1 cup of heavy whipping cream into the melted butter and turn down the heat to low. Stir the butter and cream together until it comes to a light simmer around the edges of the pan. Step 3: Pour the Lamb Chopper and Sarvecchio Parmesan into the blend and stir on level 3 heat. Step 4: Add in your garlic powder, onion powder, Better Than Bouillon Chicken and stir everything together. Step 5: Add ½ cup of heavy whipping cream for the final touch and stir. The sauce should have all the cheeses completely melted and have one of the best tasting alfredo sauces you have had. Step 6: Place your pasta on your plate, pour the alfredo sauce on top of the noodles, and squeeze your garlic clove over your pasta for the final touch. Enjoy!
