It is most definitely possible to spend months looking through different types of pasta. Instead, of focusing on pasta, I’d like to spend a few days focusing on what has become my goto dish. Many who know me will always expect pasta when I cook for a crowd.┬áBut refocusing on my introduction, pasta is a “base”.

Hello world!

Talk about a typical first post. To get this blog started, lets talk about my two favorite tools in cooking.

1. A silicon spatula

2. A pyrex glass bowl

My pyrex bowl… I don’t know what I wouldn’t do with it. I’ve eaten in it, baked in it, cooked in it…. I mean don’t put it over a fire but there is so much you can do and since the glass is smooth, its perfect when you are trying to whip up some whipped cream and meringue.

Look forward to my next post soon!!!
