Zucchini, Cherry Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Pasta

Cooking Light has hit the nail on the head with their budget cooking section lately. This month’s issue had ‘feed 4 for less than $10’, and this recipe totaled in at $6.48. Pretty awesome! If you haven’t tried making your own ricotta before, this is the perfect recipe to try it out on. I mean, […]

Mushroom and Fontina Quiche

It’s funny how many recipes I have had to post lately – can you tell I don’t get out of the house much these days so I’m using cooking as my main creative outlet? It’s also pretty funny to see the kicks I go through: this was the second of three quiches made in the […]
