500 Followers Celebration: Guest Blogger Elise's Pieces!!!

 Welcome to another day of celebration!
Today I have the super cute Elise here to guest post! Have you heard of her blog Elise's Pieces?
Its super fun and sweet and full of great inspiration posts that are totally uplifting! I absolutely adore her and her blog! So be sure to check it out if you have not already. :) Also find her on {Facebook}!

And now I hand it over to Elise!

First and foremost, a suuuuuper big congrats to the darling Miss Maria for hitting 500 followers. Maria is so cool, so talented, and I am quite pleased to count her as one of my bloggy BFFs.

Name's Elise. Put 'er there.
I hang out over at a little place I like to call

Today, I want to share one of my favorite recipes with you. 'Cause this is a 500 followers celebration, right? And every good celebration has tasty food. Well, at least I think they should. :)

My favorite thing to order from Noodles and Company is their Butter and Garlic Noodles. Up where I'm going to school, however, there is no Noodles and Company even semi close, so I have to make up my own version. You'll love this pasta, even if you can practically feel your arteries clogging as you eat it. :)

3 small garlic bulbs
1 1/2 sticks + 1Tbsp. of butter (real butter is way better than margarine in this recipe)
1 tsp garlic salt
1 package of egg noodles
Shredded cheese

Mince the garlic into the smallest pieces you can manage (I put mine through the blender, though it's hard to scoop out right next to the blade-I added water to get it all out of the blender and let the water evaporate out before the next step). Saute the garlic cloves in about 1 Tbsp. butter until they are caramelized, sprinkle some garlic salt into the mix as you are stirring. Add a stick and a half of butter and stir as the butter is melting.
Mmmmmm, look at all that butter.

While doing this, boil your egg noodles according to the directions on the bag.
Once the butter is all melted, pour about 1/4-1/3 cup over your noodles, add some shredded cheese and stir to melt the cheese.

Again, congratulations to Maria! And I hope you all enjoy your celebratory bowl of Butter and Garlic noodles.

Thank you so much Elise! Looks like a yummy quick dish! I love butter.. so bad I know. 
Plus I totally {♥} quick and easy, so this is great! 
Thank you for helping me celebrate!

Much Love & Hugs,


  1. I can feel my arteries clogging already. Another recipe to add to my "to try" list.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your thoughts with me!
