First, there was Life of Pie — the months in which I tried, failed, and tried again to become a master pie baker, baking my way through dozens of pie recipes. Then, I decided to learn to knit, and have knitted now dozens of squares and rectangles aka scarves, baby blankets, dishtowels and my latest accomplishment: hats.
And now, I bring you to the Life of Pasta . . . for Christmas, my gifts included a pasta maker and The Complete Book of Pasta and Noodles. I predict a new era on this blog, as I learn to make not only delicous Italian dishes but Thai, Japanese, Chinese and Indian noodles. I’m so excited to get started and could not wait to tell my buddy Brian, aka The Food Geek about my cooking haul. (No competitions! But I do want to have Brian over for dinner.)
Who knows, though — there could be a Pasta Fest in my future.
