Angel Hair with a Tomato Meat Sauce

Print Friendly

I feel like all I ever show you is pasta. You’re welcome? But this one is different because there’s a major MAJOR James Bond trickster secret I pulled in it. Well, to be fair, Aaron first pulled this trickster secret on me, causing a no-way-you’re-kidding-smoochy-high-five-flip out, thus propelling my neurotic interests into overdrive, causing me […]

Chicken Parmesan French Breads

New weeknight favorite. Right here. Right now. I have my hands on your shoulders and I’m looking you square in the eye and making you extremely uncomfortable. But first, could we talk about how jank my parmesan shavings are? They look like hair clippies. Barrettes. I opened a brand new block of cheese and you […]

Vegetarian Polenta Lasagna Stacks

Print Friendly

I think I might stack all of the food from now on. That way I can say total douche-bucket things like, “Girl you are staaacked!,” when no one is around. Or when everyone is around. Ugh. Stacking is good for you though! It’s healthy stuff. It exercises your balance, your steady hand, your precision, your […]

You bettah believe it. Freaking purple! Well, purple during the making, and grayish in the results. But who cares? We can still call it purple. I had this idea a while back when I bought a bag of purple potatoes for this ridiculous bacon flag pizza I made, but I forgot about it once my […]

Sometimes when I’m cooking and the food is in the pan or skillet or pot or whatever and it looks so lovely, all simmering with merriment and mirth, and then I transfer the food to a bowl or plate to serve, and somehow it transforms from a thing of beauty and wonder to a pile […]

Where there’s a shell, there’s a sway. You know like, once you realize there are shells involved in mouthal consumption activity, you sway that way? Like, towards the shells and away from say, regular pasta or a sandwich? You sway towards the shells? The shells in which you sway towards? The shell swaying? Oh! Let’s […]

Chicken Pot Pie Calzones

Print Friendly

How do you call your lover boy? You stuff a chicken pot pie in his calzone. That’s freaking how. I’m having a mild aneurism over this whole thing actually. And actually, I do realize that I overuse the word actually. I overuse a lot of words on this blawg that probably make you want to […]

Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom Manicotti

If you ask me, there’s a rumble of mighty confusion among the lands. And by lands, I mean my noggin. You know what, I’m just going to ask you. I asked the Google, but it only led me down a path of befuddlement and flask shopping. What’s the stinkin’ difference between manicotti and cannelloni? They’re […]

Exhausted from all that harking? Hi, my name is Harold. This is my brother Angel, and this is my other brother Angel. (name that […]
