Vegan Creamy Leek Pasta

My sense of humor hasn’t changed much as I got older.  Cheesy jokes get me every time.  It wasn’t until I was a full blown adult that I found out that the joke about Fozzie Bear’s jokes is that they are bad.  I always thought he was so hilarious.  I still find myself laughing inappropriately

Pasta with Green Beans and Chili Garlic Sauce

This winter has certainly been a snowy one.  My driveway is resembling an ice fortress straight off the set of Frozen.  Clearly the marketing department at Disney has been hard at work making it an icy, snowy winter to promote the movie.  I did see it twice, so I guess it’s working!!  (Oops, my Disney

Thanksgiving Leftover Pasta

Thanksgiving Leftover Pasta

A lot of people make a sandwich out of their thanksgiving leftovers.  I make a pasta.  I blame it on my Italian roots, which make me obsessed with anything involving pasta.  This one uses the gravy and cranberry as the sauce, and since you don’t have to fit it between bread, almost anything goes!! This

Roasted Tomato and Broccolini Rigatoni (vegan)

I woke up in the middle of the night on Wednesday night and had a hard time getting back to sleep.  While I laid there with my eyes closed, for some reason I started making plans for the zombie apocalypse. I guess all the apocalypse movies lately have convinced me that I need to be

Vegan Roasted Garlic and Asparagus Pasta

Vegan Roasted Garlic and Asparagus Pasta

Sometimes, when I am having a had time coming up with new recipes to make (it’s not that often to be honest because I am lucky enough to be married to a genius) I look to restaurant menus for inspiration. This particular recipe was inspired by the Pasta Da Vinci at The Cheesecake Factory.  Now,

Tomato, Lemon and Green Olive Pasta

When Hubby and I were first dating, this sauce was one of the only things he cooked.  At that point, he hadn’t done much cooking, yet somehow everything he made was incredible.  This included.  So not only is this a super tasty recipe, it is one I love just because it reminds me of those

Spring Vegetable Pasta (gluten-free)

I am daydreaming about the day that I drive past the farm, and they have the little sign out front: Our Asparagus Is Here!  I will pull in like a stunt driver in an action movie trying to lose their tail, and snatch up 4 bunches (that generally lasts us only a couple days when

Kale Bean and Tomato Pasta

Kale Bean and Tomato Pasta

Kale is such a super veggie.  It grows in cooler weather, making it available when not much else is, and of course there are all those health benefits.  What I am loving about it lately is that I can buy huge bunches of it, remove the stem, and throw it in a bag in the

Vegetarian Spaghetti Carbonara

Do I talk about comfort food a lot?  I feel like I do.  I feel like I have a problem with talking about: being obsessed with things (because I often get obsessed with stuff, when it’s awesome), exclamation mark usage (I am a chipper person and really love them…!), and comfort food. But I can’t

Vegan Bolognese

You know how some weekends, when it’s chilly outside and cozy inside, you want a big pot of comfort?  This is a big pot of comfort.  It takes a while to bubble away, which both warms up the kitchen and makes the whole house smell amazing. It takes a bit more time than my usual

Growing up, if I asked my Italian grandmother to pass the sauce, she would correct me that it is not sauce: it is gravy.  Then, when hubby and I first started dating, I discovered that he was also raised (by his Italian family) to call tomato sauce gravy.  We both ate a lot of Italian

Pumpkin Rigatoni

Something you might not know about me:  I am obsessed with pumpkin.  I know what you might be thinking: you get obsessed with a lot of weird things.  It’s true!! But I don’t think I am alone on this pumpkin issue.  As soon as it is socially acceptable to start making everything pumpkin flavored and
