Corn Ravioli

Corn Ravioli

So we had another pasta fail. This time it wasn’t gnocchi, but ravioli rather. I’m not even quite sure where to start with what we did wrong, but we did learn a lot about ravioli making from this experience. First, I don’t think our dough recipe was right, so we’ll have to definitely experiment with…

Ricotta Gnocchi + Browned Thyme Butter

Ricotta Gnocchi + Browned Thyme Butter

Our first time making gnocchi was a pretty big failure. This second time around (using ricotta) we did a little better— they actually looked like gnocchi! Success! There are only two words to describe this ricotta gnocchi with brown butter thyme sauce— simple and delicious. There are lots of variations of this pasta— just change…

Cook Off Part 1: Risotto

Cook Off Part 1: Risotto

Challenge accepted. Not seconds after this Barney Stinson response was uttered, were the plans being drafted. A true challenge had been offered and accepted by Chris and I, and therefore, it was the duty of the other three participants to quickly flesh out the details. They badgered and haggled and finally we all came to…

Homemade Gnocchi with Pesto

Homemade Gnocchi with Pesto

Well, making homemade gnocchi was an adventure to say the least. In the end, it didn’t look too pretty, but it did taste good. We set out to make our gnocchi dough late one night with the intention of refrigerating it and making it the next night. We began by reading this article entitled “How…

When Erin got back from her trip to Texas, I wanted to cook her up a great special meal just like I did last time. It’d been awhile since we’d had any yummy creamy pasta sauce, so I decided to try something that sounds delectable, vodka sauce. The first step in making vodka sauce is…

Spinach Lasagna

Spinach Lasagna

I would venture to say this spinach lasagna rivals any meat lasagna in terms of pure tastiness. It reminds me of spinach dip in lasagna form with a lovely creamy texture. I truly think the secret to awesome lasagna is no boil lasagna noodles. If you can find them at the grocery store (which you…

Oven Toasted Italian Sandwich

Oven Toasted Italian Sandwich

One of the best restaurants on the Microsoft campus is an Italian sandwich place that cooks your sandwich in a wood-fired oven. Now since our apartment complex didn’t have a model that came built in with a wood-fired oven, I decided to cook up my italian sandwich in a traditional oven. Once we’re billionaires, we’ll…

Rosemary and Chèvre Risotto

Rosemary and Chèvre Risotto

Dustin isn’t a mushroom guy, but I love them and would put them on just about every dinner I make! So when I promise to make him something delicious, even if it has mushrooms like this risotto from Creative Culinary, he’ll eat them for me. What a good guy I found. I’ve wanted to try…

Drunken Spaghetti

Drunken Spaghetti

Drunken spaghetti— spaghetti cooked in red wine. It’s so simple. I can’t believe we’ve never thought to try that on our own. After seeing this recipe and knowing we had Kalamata olives and capers in the fridge, I was sold. We had to try this recipe this week. This dish is so incredibly simple it’s astounding.…

There are a ton of inspiring recipes including these cheesy Mozzarella stuffed meatball sliders. We served these for football watching on Sunday, and they couldn’t have…
