Hey there! How we doing on this lovely Thursday? I’d like to share the fact that I saw snowflakes fall from the sky here in Minnesota this morning. I’d also like to say a lot more about the situation, but my tact is telling me to keep the bitter thoughts to myself. So instead, why don’t we just go ahead and dive into a big ol bowl of comforting Lo Mein? Let’s eat our feelings today, friends. It’s totally okay. Continue reading
Comfort food season seems to be quickly approaching around here and we are welcoming it with open arms. It’s rainy, gloomy and a bit chilly so this pasta dish is totally fitting the bill!
Friends! Hello! How are we? We’ve nearly made it through January, the most grey month of the year, in my opinion…so the rest is all downhill from here, right? We just returned home from a vacation with my entire side of the family you guys….what a way to break up the month. We had such a great time and enjoyed the warm weather of the Bahamas so incredibly much. And now…back to good old reality. But gosh I have to admit, a solid routine and well rested kids feels pretty dang good.
So to go with this grey month, how about a rich, gooey, comforting pasta dish that you can get on the table in 20 minutes? Yes? Yes. Let’s do it! Continue reading
I’ve assumed for a very long time that everyone makes Pasta Carbonara. Without a recipe, just by use of memory and repetition.

Spaghetti Pie. My guess it’s graced your family’s table in some way, shape or form. Think baked ziti, with spaghetti noodles. It’s casserole-ish. Hot dish-ish, to my Minnesotan friends. It’s comforting, rich, gooey and just plain welcomed in my home.
So, how about Spaghetti Pie with roasted spaghetti squash? Have you? Would you? You should. You totally should. Heres why… Continue reading
I won’t deny it. Pasta Carbonara tends to be one of my favorite dishes on the planet when I’m in the mood for comfort. And my entire family is right there with me, even on picky-eating days.
