Hooray for finally having internet in our apartment!!! Now for a delicious recipe for Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo!  This is my brother’s absolute favorite meal, he asks for it every year on his birthday, and I must admit, I really like it too.  My mom and I developed this recipe over the years, it’s got lots of butter and cream, which the last time I checked, are what make for really amazing alfredo!  I usually don’t measure anything when I cook, so all of these measurements are approximate, adjust it to your taste, that’s half the fun of cooking anyway.
