I love a good carbonara. It’s got all the essentials, starchy pasta, tossed with a thick creamy sauce and pops of salty flavor from the pancetta. Then there are the additions, which are really just there so you don’t overload on the aforementioned factors. In this case, I decided to go with a handful of my favorites from this early spring season, and a spritz of lemon. Al-together this spring vegetable carbonara is a dream on a plate.…
We have entered the season for fresh produce in the northeast and man am I happy about it.

Pretty cool huh? I’m hoping to get a pretty big collection (close to 100 if possible) of recipes in there and then turn that into a blog post for all the recipes, or something.

I stumbled across these photos, of this amazing dish, that was never posted….
Well, ladies and gentleman, I am no longer in my 20s. I should feel different right? Don’t you become magically wiser when you rise up into the grown-up world of your 30s? No? I guess it’s just wishful thinking….
In this house, I’m usually the chef de cuisine, but once in a while, Chuck takes the opportunity to step up to the plate. This is one of the first things he made me when we were dating. Obviously, it was well received. A super flavorful, smooth, and creamy sauce drizzled over aldente pasta served with a light salad and some bread to scoop up any leftover sauce makes me one happy lady.
