Mushroom Cacio e Pepe

BBQing is definitely one of my favorite ways of cooking in the summer BUT I can always make an exception for a hearty plate of pasta. Especially on these rainy days we keep having. On a recent rainy evening I was craving pasta but couldn’t decide between recreating the Cacio e Pepe I learned during my recent cooking class with a chef from Rome or something fresh and summery. What do I do when I can’t make a decision? Make two kinds of pasta of course. And thank goodness because they were both DELICIOUS. First up grab the recipe for Mushroom Cacio e Pepe.

It is no secret that Jamie Oliver is one of my favorite celeb chefs. I love the versatility in his recipes and cookbooks for that matter. I particularly love his Super Foods cookbook because of all the stories he tells about discovering the ingredients in the recipes. I’ve tried a few recipes from this cookbook but the crispy beef is definitely a favorite! I made a few tweaks to the recipe as I recently discovered that I like tofu – especially to add to asian dishes. It seems to soak up asian flavors well. Check out the recipe below!

Spring rolls are my go to whenever I am ordering Chinese food. I love those crispy little morsels! But whenever I thought about making them at home I didn’t have a deep fryer nor did I want to waste a ton of oil in a makeshift deep fryer. Luckily I did some research and learned that baked spring rolls are indeed a possibility. And holy heck they might just be the tastiest thing I’ve made since starting this blog (or at least top 10!). I tried this recipe for the first time this past weekend for a gals trip up North. Let’s just say it was certainly not my last time making them! Find the super easy and flavorful recipe below.

I make spaghetti squash quite often so I’m always looking for new ingredients to combine with it. Below I am sharing my top three favorites with you so far.
