Cooking with Jana and Jessa


In this TLC webisode, Jana Duggar and Jessa Seewald, with help from Spurgeon Seewald, share a tutorial of one of their family's favorite recipes: Alfredo sauce with noodles. It's a meal they grew up eating, and it's extremely simple to prepare.

  1. This is not Jessa's Kitchen or the Duggar kitchen, who's home are they cooking in?

  2. With Josie having milk issues do you make a different sauce for her?

    1. I never heard of that. How is Josie doing? Can we have an update on her? I haven't seen that little cutie in a while.

    1. I make homemade Alfredo all the time my family loves it.. U can buy the Alfredo sauce already made.. Or if u wanna make it.. U use whipping cream(not whip cream) butter salt parmecean cheese in the container not the bag) those are the ingredients and milk u can Google it and it will tell u how much to use of which ingredients but those are the things u use very fattening but it's also good angel hair pasta is best if u use the regualar thick spaghetti noodles it will come out dry the thinner the pasta when making it the better ur dish will be:)

  5. So what do they do, read comments online about how they don't do something (like cook), and then immediately make a video to try to disprove it? If so, then Jinger should be there showing off her skills, too.

  6. They don't eat healthy but some families are like that.

    1. Those are the families who hold their family reunions in the cemetery.

    2. Really? I was floored by your comment! Why would you say something so insensitive like that?! Besides that statement/joke not being true, I sincerely hope you have an apology. More than that, I would hope you would think more before putting a comment out there for the world to see. No one plans their family reunions to be around a loved one's grave. Ouch. If by 'those families' you mean the ones who nourish their families with good cream, butter, etc, please don't fall for the government health standard lies that all these will clog your arteries! That goes for everyone commenting on here that 'oh my word what a fattening recipe!' People, they add sugar and fillers to anything that says 'low fat' to improve the taste because they've stripped it of what God put there! Read the book "Eat Fat to Lose Fat". Look up Weston A. Price's research. Buy "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon. I encourage you to become educated on this subject because you are what you eat. It will change your life.

    3. Please- how do you explain your rationale?

  7. Cute. Jessa has said she doesn't know how to cook much so it's nice she did this. I'd like to see Jana and Jill cook something as I think they must be the primary cooks (Jinger and Joy-Anna also say they don't how to cook much). I get the feeling maybe they eat a lot of frozen meals but would love to hear about some of the things Michelle made when they were little and their income would have required them to cook.

    1. I'd be very interested to learn what Michelle made fore her children before her older daughters took charge.
      Why are these older daughters saying they don't know how to cook much??? In older 19K & Counting episodes they were the primary cooks!!!

    2. If someone asks me, I say I can't cook. I do cook. I am just not a chef and not very adventurous in the kitchen. I am sure that it what they mean... not that they can't cook anything. When we have people over, I cook for them, but I don't want them to expect a gourmet meal.

  8. This looks like a very high end kitchen (granite, cabinets). Has Jessa moved into the big house Jim Bob bought next to his that has 4 bedrooms and an inground swimming pool? Maybe so with the baby on the way.???

    1. Their interviews and short clips like this are filmed in their studio/guest house.

    2. At least where I am, in Vancouver, granite and custom cabinets are pretty standard when buying a house, at least. Definitely nothing out of the ordinary.

    3. I would LOVE to see them trying to make healthier, fresher meals! All that fat is just not healthy. If you're a parent, you really should be trying to feed your children nutritious food...

    4. This might be Anna's new place? Since Josh returned I doubt she is still sleeping in the girls' room

  9. An easier way is to boil your pasta and set it aside for a minute in the colander. In the same pot you boiled the pasta, melt some butter with some half and half, add the pasta back, then top with cheese. Only one pot to wash.

  10. Love how you all criticize what they do or don't do, how healthy or unhealthy they choose to eat. Most of them look very healthy. They live very active lives. So what if they choose to eat a more fatty lifestyle than you would choose. It's their family. Their choices. A lot of times when they bake or cook for filming purposes they might use a friends home that is more open and inductive to showing what they're doing vs Jessa's tiny kitchen that suits the couples needs. As of the filming being shown it doesn't appear she lives in the home Jill lived in. That was temporary anyway as it was listed for sale. You may not have paid attention to that info when they moved in. Jim Bob buys homes and flips them. That's what that house was. A flip.

    1. The house Jill lived in has been sold (you can verify online it's the stoney brook house). This is the house next door that they bought that has the inground pool.

    2. Eating healthy is much more important then "looking healthy"

      Delete
    3. Big difference between "looking healthy " and being healthy. Several of the Duggars are quite over weight. I agree it's their choice to eat what they want, but God did say in Leviticus don't eat the fat.

    4. This recipe does not mean they eat like this everyday! Maybe they make it as a treat once or twice a month.

      Delete
  11. Do you know what kind of cheese they used? I definitely want to try this! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Alfredo sauce should use Parmesan cheese.

      Delete
    2. The classic recipe calls for parmesan.

      Delete
  12. This is a terrible recipe for Alfredo sauce. They need to start the sauce with a roux so it wouldn't be runny at the end.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's what I was thinking. I make white sauces for pasta from a roux and skim milk and they're fine.

      Delete
    2. Classic alfredo sauce doesn't use a roux. Just butter, cream, parmesan, and a touch of nutmeg.

      Delete
    3. Classic alfredo is cream and butter. No flour.

  13. Do these women actually eat this sauce? It has way too many calories and fat!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Are you ladies putting most of the comments on this site? It seems like
    there should be a lot more on the reaction to the last episode. Please
    put on what people are saying, good or bad. Thank You

  15. I think TLC is trying to make the members of this family look ridiculous.

  16. Is parsley a spice?

    1. It is a herb; I grow it in my garden, along with basil and thyme

  17. Do the Duggars eat vegetables? It doesn't seem like it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I enjoyed the Alfredo video! I might try that soon. It might be fattening, but not if you don't have it very often...and tasty! Jana and Jessa, I like seeing you girls cook together. I'll take notes in my cooking spiral! Never too old to learn new tricks! Thanks a bunch!

  19. Pickles and green beans.

  20. Relax people, im sure they don't eat like this everyday or you would definately see it on their hips.Clearly they have very nice figures, so lay off, good golly folks!

  21. Why don't ya'll just say nice things about them instead of finding all of their faults and accusing them of so much? Matthew 7:5 says You hypocrite, First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brothers eye. We can not control what others do but we can control our actions.

  22. Deuteronomy tells us what we will eat if the enemy besieges us and it sure isn't alfredo sauce, or even that survival school food from last week's episode. If you're going to follow the Bible's words and proudly go on TV saying so, you have to do it all the way, not part of the way. Those first five books of Moses are pretty strict to follow, and I'm still waiting for the Duggars to fully adhere to them.

    1. I don't know why you are waiting for them to abide by the law that was given to the Jews. I Timothy 4:3-4 says, "Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:"

    2. Those are Jewish rules which were done away with the New Testament. Christians are not obliged to follow those rules, only the moral law.

  23. Love these recipe videos! I now am a huge fan of cucumbers with salt and vinegar (the other video). Please post more! Thank you!

  24. Why should the Duggars adhere to the first 5 books of the bible? They are in the Old Testament, which Christ came to abolish the old covenant and establish the new? The people of the Jewish faith adhere to the OT; those first 5 books of the bible also known as The Torah.
