Unicorn Cauliflower Salad

  Salad at the End of the Rainbow Unicorns seem to be all the rage these days. Unicorn onsies. Unicorn toast (not to be confused with Mermaid toast). Unicorn lattes (yes people … they’re real! Served up in Brooklyn at The End). So I got to thinking … what about Unicorn … salad? True. Unicorn […]

Classic White Truffle Pasta

  Pimped Out Buttered Noodles I just had the week of a lifetime. I traveled all over Italy with Lucini Italia to see Italy through their eyes and enjoy the olive harvest. I plan on sharing much more about this trip soon, but immediately need to share my truffle foraging experience. We had a gorgeous […]

Zucchini ‘Cacio e Pepe’

Buon Appetito! Cacio e Pepe is a classic Roman pasta dish which means “cheese and pepper”. It’s a testament to the statement, “less is more”. It’s absolutely delicious and a quick solution to a rumbling belly, but I wanted to find a way to create it without the heavy feeling of cheese and pasta. Zucchini […]

Golden Beet Pasta with Okra
