Gelato al Limone

Gelato al Limone

When I went to Italy a few years ago, I was able to try my very first gelato al limone (Lemon Gelato). It was a hot, dusty day in Firenze (Florence) and gelaterie were everywhere. I stepped up to the nearest one and asked for […]

Lasagne al Ragù

Mozzarella Sticks w/Marinara Sauce

Turkey Bolognese Sauce & Whole Wheat Pasta

Turkey Bolognese Sauce & Whole Wheat Pasta

This past weekend, I decided to make more homemade pasta and the same bolognese sauce I have made for a few months now. I have made this sauce so much now that I didn’t need to look at the recipe this time around. I started […]

Two-Hour Focaccia Revisited

Two-Hour Focaccia Revisited

When I first started this blog, I made and blogged about this two-hour focaccia. Since then, I have made it a few more times and always have been pleased with it.Since the photos from the first post do not give this yummy bread justice, I […]

Homemade Pasta & Bolognese Sauce

Homemade Pasta & Bolognese Sauce

Noodles with italian seasoning on top. This past weekend, I decided to make my first batch of homemade pasta after seeing the detailed, yet simple process on Pioneer Woman’s website. She had a visitor called Pastor Ryan who made this pasta along with bolognese sauce […]
