Pasta al Pomodoro

Pasta al pomodoro is pasta with tomato sauce. This recipe comes from Bon Appetit’s May 2011 issue, and it’s the recipe on the cover. Yes, this is your basic spaghetti sauce, but it’s supposed to be authentic Italian and wonderful (and it does taste good). If you like making sauce from scratch (or want to […]

Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

Eggplant Mozzarella

So it was my birthday a short while ago, around Thanksgiving, and I am officially 21. Finally. I’m proud to say I’ve been to my first bar and had my first legal drink (a fuzzy navel!), though I’m sure the brilliance of it all will fade quickly. But since my birthday was the day before […]
