**I have to admit, I don't think Chef Ramsay would have sent MY awesome risotto back. I also bet he wouldn't have called me a donkey! ;)

Squash, Bacon, Goat Cheese Pasta

We make a lot of squash & pasta dishes in the summer time. I can't get enough of them! This has to be one of my absolute favorites so far (although I think any pasta that includes goat cheese is going to be at the top of my list!)

Chicken and Artichoke Stuffed Crepes

These were reeeeally good! I didn't make the actual crepes myself since our local grocery store has some really good fresh ones, and there wasn't really a specific recipe for the filling I made, but I'll give some general info under the cut. :)

Zucchini Fritters

We make these zucchini fritters all of the time, year round! I found the original recipe on a blog somewhere a very long time ago, which I no longer have bookmarked; however, it's so easy and versatile, that I have it memorized and will share it!

Mushroom Pie

Lately I have found myself perusing my local library more and more often. I also have found myself solely interested in the cook books as of late. I found this little gem of a recipe. It had peaked my interest when I was reading the book and I tried it. The pie was amazing, so I though I need to write about this one. This is unlike any savoury pie I had tried and I am glad I did!



Homemade Pasta

A lot of people are intimidated by homemade pasta.. it's really not that hard! The majority of the work is in the rolling and slicing part. You can speed up that portion with a hand cranked pasta machine, an attachment for your kitchenaid, or heck.. a pasta machine. I actually prefer to hand roll it though, it's just more fun to me that way! However, I don't think you can roll it as thin by hand as you could with an appliance, and thus will have a thicker pasta noodle.

I've tried a couple different recipes so far - some with egg, some without. The eggless one I tried most recently was by far the easiest to roll and cut!

My first Bento Box lunch

I packed this for my four year old to take to pre-k.  I was inspired by a friend of mine who has been packing bento boxes for a while now, and the fact that I found these at Kroger:

So, I looked in my fridge this morning and pulled out a few things I knew would work, and some I thought might. I also brought out a cookie cutter for her sandwich. This is the result:

It is a peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich on whole wheat bread (cut in a flower shape, the dog ate the rest of it), two strawberries dipped in sugar, half a dozen raspberries, pretzel Goldfish, baby carrots, grape tomatoes and ranch dressing, and roast chicken-light cream cheese-pickle roll ups. She ate a little of everything, but she didn't like the chicken-cream cheese-pickle wraps. I may not do this every day, but I know she was thrilled with her "pretty" lunch. She had to show it to everyone. :)


Is it supper time already?
