Since hearing of pasta recipes like this one, I’ve been very intrigued. I love the idea of a pasta dish that merely requires you to mix some things in a bowl, toss in the cooked pasta (and some reserved pasta cooking liquid), garnish with some cheese, and serve. If you have access to fresh and flavorful ingredients, it’s the best solution for a quick and satisfying meal. [Read more…]
Can I just say WTF for a second about the fact that it’s January? Of 2014? The END of January? What. The. Eff. Now whenever anyone mentions 2012, I have to think SO HARD about whether or not that was “last year.” I know people say that time goes more quickly the older you get, but 2013 was my fastest year by far. It feels like it was a little blip in the space-time continuum. For example, I have about 7 months left to plan my wedding.

I pin a lot of recipes. I get irrationally sad and frustrated sometimes because I know I could never make all of them. These “Wish List” posts are a way for me to highlight some of the amazing recipes I would like to make, with each one focusing on a specific ingredient or type of food, etc. If you make something from here, please let me know! I will live vicariously through you.
Some of you may be sick of pumpkin, but Thanksgiving isn’t even over yet, so please excuse me for this.
I used to steer clear of pumpkin things, because all I ever really had it in was pumpkin pie. Well the thing is – I don’t really like pumpkin pie. Surprising, right? I know, I’m weird. Once I started getting really interested in cooking and following food blogs, my eyes were opened. Food bloggers are crazy! They’ll throw pumpkin in anything. I’m convinced that food bloggers look at the year in food seasons instead of traditional seasons. It’s not fall or autumn, people – it’s PUMPKIN SEASON. But I’m totally okay with that. I feel like the food blog world really outdid themselves this year with pumpkin, so I went a little crazy with my pinning as well.
