    Dumplings with my family
    A recent graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, I found myself with no money, no kitchen equipment, and an exceptionally huge appetite. Ideas, improvisations, and yummy meal solutions were discovered in the kitchen of my very first apartment.

    I've been getting a lot of requests and suggestions for the apartment kitchen. I LOVE these suggestions, keep them coming!

Ingredient Spotlight: Pasta

Pasta is a great food for the apartment kitchen. Even though Matt doesn’t like it as much (I know, right? Doesn’t seem possible…), I find myself whipping it up in all sorts of situations. Why? Well, there’s the obvious – it’s fast, easy, and cheap. But there’s also the fact that you can do almost anything to it. I like to toss it warm into spinach or arugula salads. Top it with all kinds of sauce. Or finish it with tons of veggies and a fried egg for something different. Spicy, tangy, acidic, salty, meaty, or even just as a component in a totally different dish – pasta is a great thing to have on hand. And on a day like today (Christmas shopping after a snowy day), coming home to a quick dinner of hot pasta was just the ticket.
