Successful Day of Cooking!

My day of cooking with Ben went really well on Saturday! We may have started an hour later than planned (Hey, we had to eat lunch!), but we stayed under budget, only spending about $33 per person for all our ingredients! We may have sat down to dinner at 7:00pm instead of the planned 5:00pm. We may have used every single appliance and dish in our kitchen, it may have taken us well over an hour to clean it all up afterward. We may have had more than a few jokes made about the not so great homemade pasta and bland pasta sauce, but hey: we learned a lot, made some really great new things and had a fun day. In the end, that's really what it all was about, right?

We made the following:
Homemade Mozzarella - (post coming on that this week)
Homemade pasta with sauce from Luisa Weiss's Book, My Berlin Kitchen

More on each of these items throughout the week!

  5. Seriously? You posted pictures of scrumptious food and didn't tell us how to make these things. We have to wait until tomorrow? This is like a trailer for a fantastic movie that we have to wait to see! The suspense is killing me! Did you at least save me a slice of cake? And pasta? And bread? And cheese, and...;-). So glad you and Ben had such a good time making awesome food and treasured memories!
