Weeknight Bolognese Sauce

When I was in Italy last summer, one of the best things I ate was a lasagne dish with homemade pasta, bechamel sauce, and bolognese sauce. In Bologna, of course, with a generous pour of red wine in my glass, too. My aunt and I had a very relaxing couple of days to close out […]

Vegetable Lo Mein with Peanut Sauce

So Scott is preparing for the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday, which means this week he wants all pasta, all the time. I made a cheesy pasta casserole yesterday and shrimp scampi was requested by the carbo-loader for tomorrow. So I thought I’d make something…less Italian…tonight. What the hell, I thought.

Smoked Mac and Cheese

You read that right. It’s the ultimate comfort food. Or in this case, my boyfriend’s ultimate pre-race food. A typical afternoon conversation starts off with me asking Scott, “What do you want for dinner?” and he always responds, “Food.” Except he had a race the next morning so he said, “Pasta.” Scott is a pretty […]
