A Must-Share Pasta Recipe and Random Life Updates

Pasta alla Norcina

I will kick off this post with a fantastic recipe I made last night because that’s probably why you are here.

If you want to read my boring life update (because it’s been MONTHS since I’ve blogged), it’s below the recipe card.

Road Trip Highlights

I’m going with highlights here because I cannot possibly begin to sift through all the emotions and thoughts in my head right now. Part of me would love to do a complete recap of our entire trip and share all the fun details of the last dinner party I hosted, but I simply don’t have the mental capacity.

Weekend Cooking and Geocaching Adventures

I would have loved to write this last night but come Sunday nights, I’m exhausted! Especially now that the weather is finally starting to break and we are doing more outside.

This weekend two things dominated my time, cooking and geocaching.

Roni’s Rum Cream

Click here to get straight to the recipe. I hate reading too.

Last year I still had a pipe dream that I’d start a new food blog and spend my days experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes and cocktail ideas.

Then I started down the path and remembered how much work it would require, and, well, I’m not willing to quite the stability of my full-time job at the moment. So, here we are, inconsistently blogging when time allows.

Anyway, let me tell you about this Rum Cream!

Roasted Lemon Vinaigrette

Last year I had a pipe dream that I’d take up food blogging again. I thought if I started from scratch, it would be fun to rebuild an online repository for my food adventures, and I could share recipes and photos as a creative outlet.

Boy, was I wrong. Food blogging is just not fun anymore. At least not for me.

You know how everyone complains that food bloggers have these long-drawn-out stories before their recipes?

My Post-Holiday Food Notes and a New Blog!

I originally planned on writing this post last week over the break, but time just got away from me. I don’t know what happened. It was Christmas Eve and then… BOOM!

Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail

Happy Election day! Even though it doesn’t feel too happy. Frankly, I’m avoiding the news and will be watching some cheese horror flick instead. The results will be the same if I watch or not, so why put myself through the roller coaster ride?

Anyhoo, yesterday I was inspired by our leftover Halloween candy and made myself a Peanut Butter Cup Cocktail. It took a few attempts (which I didn’t mind), and I have settled on this combination of ingredients. I’m enjoying the one in the photograph as I write this recipe up.
