Pasta with Clams & Sausage

On Instagram a few weeks back, The Kitchn announced that they were creating a virtual cookbook club (ie: a book club, but with cookbooks...). I got really excited! I love cookbooks, trying new recipes, and getting inspired from different sources, but honestly sometimes I'm a little lazy about it. Frankly, a lot of times it's easier... Continue Reading →

Spring Pasta with Brie, Ham, and Peas

Who doesn't love spring? Flowers blooming, weather warming up, and March Madness! Ally loves March Madness every year, but this year was extra special.

Golden Goat Pasta

Tonight we decided to take a brief detour from our now tried and true basic pasta recipe.

Take today's recipe... I knew I wanted to make... Continue Reading →

If you've ever been to Rome, you know what I'm talking about. Literally ever Roman restaurant we set foot in served... Continue Reading →

Herbed Shrimp Pasta Salad

Given that my sister Amy was the center of attention for her own graduation celebration, she got to pick which dishes my mom made for the party. One of her absolute favorites is this pasta salad with shrimp. Pretty much any time Amy gets to pick, this is what she asks for. This family favorite... Continue Reading →

Homemade Pasta Carbonara

In 2015, we went on a trip to Italy & Turkey. After eating our way through Rome, we became mildly obsessed with fresh pasta. So we got the pasta attachments for our stand mixer and have been trying to master making pasta from scratch ever since. The first time we attempted homemade pasta, we decided... Continue Reading →
