I mean just look at that! Ridiculously satisfying. It never fails to amaze me that we used to spend hundreds of dollars at steakhouses, and a treat like this is so much more affordable and attainable!
I made pasta. No, I meant I made fresh pasta. Making it I thought, Why do I do this to myself, I could have just boil some pasta and be done with it. But by the end of the meal, I'm all about fresh pasta. This is just something incredibly charming about hand-making-kneading-slicing your own pasta. You have to try it. Just channel that inner Italian grandma within you. You can do it!
My mother-in-law came back from Paris and brought back Pierre Herme macarons and a huge box of chocolate bon bons. Lots of sweets, lots of love.
When I asked KW what cake he wanted, he replied, "Just a simple cheesecake." I was all ready to order one when a foolish thought entered by mind, What if I made one? Hey presto ... Behold this Pistachio Basil and Salted Caramel Cheesecake! It was creamy and super dense, which the birthday boy loved.
I have made many meals in the past but this was surely one of my favourite meals to put together. A lovely meal that has surely inspired more to come!
