Hello World!

Haha, remember that, “Hello World”?  For anyone that took computer programming in high school (talkin’ 80s here), it was the first thing you learned to program that would pop up on the screen.  Or, if you’re, say, a 34 year old that graduated with a computer science degree and spent nerdy time being a software […]

Dinner at Beth’s

This past weekend I enjoyed a wonderful meal, and copious amounts of good Texas wine (seen here), at our friend Beth’s.  Each year Ben and I do the Susan G. Komen race for Beth, who is a survivor twice over, and this year she auctioned off dinner at her house as part of her fundraising. […]

Mary’s Gnocchi Workshop

Do y’all know Mary?  Sweet Sicilian Mary whom I met through working at Sur La Table?  Jimmy’s Food Store Mary who makes the fig cookies? Yeah, I thought that would jog your memory – and your tastebuds!  I FINALLY got to take a cooking class from Mary at SLT.  I’ve only worked there 3 years, […]

crazy pasta

Sometimes a gal just wants sqiggly pasta.  Not pasta that walks the straight and narrow, has obeyed all the rules, and never gotten outta’ line.  Sometimes I just want pasta as crazy as my spiral-permed hair circa 1986!  Pasta like THIS: Of course, you know where I procured such wonderful dry goods – Jimmy’s of […]

Yep it was pizza again.

And it was still yummy! Again, the dough was from Jimmy’s. I made my own sauce by sauteing 1 diced onion w/ 1 can Marzano Italian plum tomatoes that I mashed up in the pan. I let this reduce down 4 about 45 mins w/ a few teaspoons of kosher salt & sugar. I made […]

Yes again…

Something yummy is in the making here…I can’t get enuff of it! Finished pics 2 come. :o)

I think I’ve got this pizza thing down.

So, I wanted to use up the marinara & basil I had from last week when I jumped into this pizza making mode, and I had one more dough ball from Jimmy’s in the freezer calling my name.  This time I made a big pizza, so I could fold the pieces in half, New York style.  I have […]

Baked Ziti last night

Ran by Jimmy’s last night after work, craving ingredients for something with pasta.  As I’ve said before, for all things Italian, that’s the place to go in Dallas.  I picked up the makings for baked ziti.  I didn’t follow a recipe, but I’ll tell ya’ what I used and how I made it: Baked Ziti […]
