chicken parm

September 23, 2012


Told ya that canning was my thing last week… if I were to channel my dad’s sense of humor hardcore, I’d say that ‘canning was my jam’ get it? Jam? Canning? Yup, could’ve saved you from that, but chose not to! I found a grocery store (Market Basket, to be specific) that has the cheapest […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

September 11, 2012


This past Saturday I turned 28. It’s been a pretty good year, overall. Busy, at times crazy making, and exhausting, but all in all not too shabby. I woke up, made some coffee, watched the news. Waited for what seemed like an eternity for my Auntie to call me to sing happy birthday. She usually […]

Pappardelle : Cacio e Pepe

September 6, 2012


I really wanted to make a nice pasta dish. I had a fantastic dinner out at a little Italian Restaurant on Friday night, and I had Pappardelle (the ribbon pasta) for the first time in a really long time. They prepared it with lobster, shrimp, and pancetta and a bunch of good things- I know […]

Portofino Rotini

August 24, 2012


When it’s time for dinner, sometimes you need to nosh on something while you think, cook, talk, answer the phone, press 3 to be taken off the call list, and do conversions from one recipe to…. normal numbers from the country of one’s birth… This calls for a little app, and a dinner that takes […]

Tumala d’Andrea

August 12, 2012


I bought this Saveur cookbook over two years ago. This was the first thing that I saw that made me dog ear the page. A timbale, named for the drum, or tummala, tumala, it’s got a few names… An Italian casserole. It looked amazing, but way too overwhelming to take from the page to the kitchen table. […]

chicken, broccoli, and whatever type of pasta you like

August 7, 2012


Apparently I have broken my camera. No matter what I do, it just keeps saying “remove battery pack” to me. What the hell. I’m pissed. I was too fertutzed the other night to even remember to pick up my stupid iphone and take pictures with it. So stupid. So, my plan was to use up the […]

chicken balls, pesto pasta, and a csa inspired salad

August 3, 2012


I coerced my little sisters into stopping by for dinner, they needed to come pick up a whole bunch of conditioners and notebooks, mechanical pencils, ecc that I had picked up while shopping, also everybody was in town and neither of them had to work because it was the older one’s birthday. Seemed perfect to […]

Orecchiette mixed in a mixer

July 26, 2012


I cannot find the cord for my camera so until then, i have zip fir photographic evidence… Bear with me, I’ll find it eventually… Due to my “fly by the seat of my pants” meal planning skills, it seems that I manage to make orecchiette only when it is HOT AS HELL out. Last time […]

lazy guy’s pasta salad

July 6, 2012


To tell the truth, I mean tired. Not cheap or lazy. But, it could easily be any of them. This recipe for pasta salad should be made with tortolini, but sometimes when I’m shopping, I can picture something sitting in my house, on a shelf, or in a drawer, and I can picture it so easily. So clearly! […]

Arugula and Garlic Scape Pesto

June 27, 2012


Pesto has got to be one of the tastiest things. Ever. I know not everybody will agree with that statement, and that will just have to be ok. Pesto is easy to make, and is one of the things that makes joining a CSA totally worth it – aside from the cost, supporting local farms, […]
