Nutella Cheesecake

Nutella Cheesecake

I’m Back! An indulgent slice of Nutella Cheesecake with a side serving of homemade, vanilla bean ice cream! In March 2009, I started a food blog at mangiodasola.blogspot.com. After a few months of surprised popularity, I purchased my own domain name only to lose it […]

Bucatini alla Carbonara (2 versioni)

Ciao di nuovo! It’s been another long while since I’ve posted. I have not been cooking anything interesting. In fact before making this yummy Carbonara, I made a mushy pot of black beans and brown rice . . . trust me; it wasn’t blog-worthy. Also […]

La Pizza Mariangela

La Pizza Mariangela

I wrote “Daring Cooks” with a question mark in the title because I didn’t really follow the instructions in this challenge (and I’m two days late!), but I was inspired by one of the dishes we were requested to make with one of the nut […]

Pizza Hut Clone Pizza Revisited

Pizza Hut Clone Pizza Revisited

My mom’s pizza: tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, jalapeños, onions, sauce, and mozzarella cheese. In May of last year, I made this clone recipe of Pizza Hut’s Pan pizza and was instantly hooked on it. I love thick and thin dough, but my favorite is the thick, […]

Click on the above photo and enlarge it to see this beautiful pasta closely. On our way back from the berry farm, my mother and I stopped at one of our favorite places – Barnes & Noble Booksellers. If you’re not familiar with this place, […]

Chicken Carbonara

Chicken Carbonara

Chicken Carbonara?! What?! But Carbonara is supposed to have guanciale (pork cheek), pancetta or at least bacon! Well, I didn’t have any of those items, and I was broke at the end of April, so I decided to improvise and use chicken strips in place […]
