fresh pasta with prosciutto and peas

I, like so many Americans, am so guilty of eating way more than a recommended serving of pasta, and probably everything else, as well. Since we rarely eat out these days, and can easily avoid a 3-cup portion of pasta arriving on our table, I’ve been trying to figure out just how much I should be making […]

With the impending doom of Sandy on her way, I’m unsure if I really should’ve taken the time to go to the grocery store before it became a mess – I don’t usually prepare for storms like the news would have you believe most of us do, but I don’t like to have my weekly shopping slowed […]

I bought the pasta attachment that I’d wanted forever from Target the other day. It, miraculously enough, was on sale the day after my birthday, and with free shipping (oh, yeah, AAA discounts, if you don’t know, you’d better find out…) so it showed up about a week or so after that.

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 […]

Look, Ma! No potatoes!

I have wanted to try making gnocchi for quite some time now. What’s been holding me back? Well, I have no ricer. So when I made potato dinner rolls… It took quite a while to say the least. Not wanting a repeat of that since I can still vividly remember it, I was excited when […]

Pappardelle : Cacio e Pepe

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 […]
