Tomato and Butter Spaghetti

Sep 2, 2014

Hi.  Did you have a happy and relaxing Labor Day weekend?  I did.  I spent mine traipsing around Northern California with a couple of my best girlfriends.

TK dinner ~ August 2014

Pasta with Prosciutto, Kale, and Red Pepper

Whole Wheat Pappardelle with Spring Vegetables

 This is one of those recipes that was forged out of desperation. I've been on a whole grain kick. Well, truth be told, I've been on that particular kick for several years. I can find lots of fresh whole wheat pastas in the market. However, i...

Chanterelles with Pasta

If you see chanterelle mushrooms, get them! They may look delicate, but they hold up well during both preparation and cooking. They do, however, have a delicate taste, so be sure to use them in a recipe that is light enough to showcase their spect...

Roasted Winter Veggies and Penne with Brown Butter Sauce

Roasted winter vegetables! Still here, even though it sometimes looks like spring outside. These have winter kale mixed in to make us think, or hope, of spring. Serve this at the end of winter, when you want spring to be here, but spring vegetable...
