Spaghetti and Meatballs

I often find happiness and contentment in a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. It’s one of my favorite foods- the blend of tomatoes, cheese and meat, the aroma of it while it cooks is intoxicating for me.

Also known as coal miner’s spaghetti (according to wikipedia),  pasta alla carbonara is a really simple and easy dish to prepare (why I’m done cooking in under 20 minutes).   It’s a hearty, delicous and very satisfying.  I like to use Tyler Florence’s simple recipe with some adjustments to suit my family’s taste and my [...]

What I love about this dish is that you can make the meatballs in bulk and store them in the freezer and just take out some when you need it. The sauce or gravy is super simple and easy to make, no prep needed except for the cheese, but you can just directly grate that [...]

Lemon Spaghetti »

Lemon Spaghetti

When I first made lemon spaghetti, I used Giada de Laurentiis recipe; while I liked it, my family didn’t–it was too sour/tangy for them. I gave this dish another try using Rachel Ray’s recipe. I must say, I like this one better because of the addition of garlic, red chilli flakes and some cream; the [...]

My family and I love pesto, it’s simple, healthy and delicious, so I make it often especially when basil is abundant in the market.   But the kids, they love cheesy bechamel sauce too especially my daughter so I thought of combining the two but here, I did not add nuts and cheese to the pesto, it’s very basic- just [...]
