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 […]

Daring Cooks?: Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Homemade Pasta

Daring Cooks?: Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Homemade Pasta

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 […]
