roasted red pepper pasta sauce

January 3, 2014

I’ve got this ability to cook for about a zillion people even though it’s only been me and Mr. Julia eating on a daily basis. Sometimes the things that I really want to cook, or when I find a recipe that looks “too cool to ignore” they don’t always re-heat to then become a second meal, or […]

fresh pasta with prosciutto and peas

November 15, 2012

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 […]

I was talking to Aunty Cathy about our basil plants. She has a much more serious garden than I do… See example of mine below… She remarked that she was showing her friend how well they were doing this summer “see how the pesto is doing?” I too refer to my basil as its final […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

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 […]
