  • Aglio e Olio - a traditional Italian pasta dish prepared in just 10 minutes. It's light & easy to prepare!

    Lately, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed. There are so many decisions to make on our home & each one effects the other. I’m anxious to settle in, but all good things take time, & this is no different. It should come to no surprise that I have been wanting to make¬†some effortless dinners. More & more, that’s my cooking style. I’d rather spend an extra half hour watching the girls parade around the driveway on their bikes, scooters & cars than in the kitchen. That’s what winter’s for! There are so many fresh, skinnier dishes that can be made in just a few minutes.¬†Aglio e Olio is just one of my favorites. It consists of just a few staple ingredients, also saving me a run to the grocery store. See, effortless!

    I have to warn you, my move to St. Louis has only added to my fondness of pasta. I look forward to incorporating some fall flavor soon! Are you ready for fall?
