PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

Have you ever tried to make your own pasta? Friends have told me it’s super easy.  Recent guests to our humble seaside home said they make pasta for lobster filled ravioli….oh, be still my seafood loving beating heart! And recently someone from social media posted a picture of his outdoor pasta making.  So, I thought to myself, if he can easily make it in a […]

NOVEMBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

Did you think I had fallen down a rabbit hole?  Well I sort of did.  We’re in the middle of renovating the main bathroom in our little home by the sea.  It’s not very big, this bathroom, but when we take stock of what’s being done, it’s not too unlike building a small home.  Tiling, electrical, plumbing, some drywall, painting, wall papering, all new fixtures […]

EASY SLOW COOKER MAC ‘n CHEESE (a guest in my galley)

Now that we’ve moved back to Nova Scotia my son Luke gets to visit us more often.  And he’s such a great helper, always asking  what he can do to assist.  One weekend he spent the time putting together some shelves so I could organize our wee place a bit better. Another time he spent the afternoon with Francois clearing the brush around Duck Pond, […]

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

I love kugel, especially the savoury kind.  Well, in truth I love anything with pasta and cheese.  It’s the ultimate comfort food especially welcomed now that we are heading into some chilly days.  I call it my hibernation food. This next recipe was made to be a complete meal with spinach and mushrooms and lots of dairy for protein.  I baked it no-oven-galley-style in my […]

TAGLIATELLE with MUSHROOM ESCARGOT CREAM SAUCE

Every time I cook with snails I feel kind of fancy for some reason.  I don’t know if it’s the French word ‘escargots’ but it sounds very exotic. It’s a surprisingly inexpensive addition to a meal as one little can is more than enough for two of us and because I added them to this very rich mushroom sauce ladled over buttery pasta it became […]

CHICKEN RAVIOLI BAKE

This recipe is one of those zero-stress-company’s-coming kind of dinners.  We have our condo up for sale and in the midst of making sure everything was clean and neat we also were expecting dinner guests, and on top of that we had scheduled three showings back to back just before guests were to arrive.  So I can confirm first hand that this meal was indeed […]
