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 […]

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 […]

Have you ever bought “b-grade” tomatoes in bulk? Well, if you are planning on it, do it on a day that you will have time to do something with them SOON, don’t pick them up on the Wednesday of a ridiculously busy week and think that you can leave them “til you have time” because, […]

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. […]

It’s a funny story, how I signed up for my CSA share this year. Well, at least my friend Steph who I’m sharing my share with this year thought it was funny. I went out for food and drinks (emphasis on the drinks, margaritas, to be exact) with my sisters and a friend. I had two (or […]
