Cooking and Baking Boredom

By: Tori Auckland/A&E Editor

During this time that we are all stuck at home, many people have been taking up new hobbies, such as knitting, painting, online shopping, and my favorite, cooking and baking! I’m going to share with you my all time favorites, starting with main dishes!

Fettuccine Alfredo

You will Need:

  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 Teaspoons of minced garlic
  • Flour (as needed)
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 cups of parmesan
  • 1 pound of fettuccine noodles

Get out a saucepan and start to melt the butter. In another saucepan, begin to boil water for the noodles. Once the butter is melted, add the garlic. Keep your burner on low so you don’t burn the garlic. Once the garlic is sauteed (a little brown), add the flour. You want to add enough flour that mixture turns to a thick paste. Slowly add the milk, a little at a time, and continue to stir until it comes to a boil. Then take off the heat and add the parmesan. If it is too thin, add more parmesan. If it is too thick, add more milk. Stir in with your noddles and enjoy!


You will Need:

  • 1 tablespoon of yeast
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 cups of flour

Pre-heat the oven to 400. Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Once it’s dissolved, add the olive oil, sugar, salt and flour. Let the dough rise for 30 minutes in a warm area. Once it is done rising, spread it out on a greased cookies sheet, and put holes in the dough using a fork. Cook the crust for 10 minutes. Pull it out of the oven and add the toppings of your choice. After you finish decorating the pizza, put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes. Pull it out and enjoy!

Now moving onto desserts!

Pie Crust

You will Need:

  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/4 cups crisco

In a bowl, mix the water, vinegar, and egg. Once it is combined, set aside. In another bowl, combine the flour and salt. Then put in the crisco. Add the liquid to the flour and roll out the dough. This recipe makes 3 pie crusts.


You will Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Pre-heat oven to 400. Mix together 1 1/2 sugar, butter, shortening, and eggs. Stir in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Shape the dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Mix 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon, and dip balls in mixture. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes

I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do!
