Red Shallot Kitchen: Happy New Year 2013! 2012 flew by so fast. Lots of fun and exciting things happened to us in 2012. A new addition to our family (puppy), summer vacation (Puerto Rico), J's new job, and my short trip to Jakarta to see family and friends. We took bread making classes in San Francisco, watched a couple of touring Broadway shows, and shared some wonderful and memorable meals with family and friends. All in all, 2012 was a great year. So, on this first day of 2013, please allow me to wish you all a joyous and happy new year. May this new year brings immense happiness in all you do, the creativity and passion to cook and to try new things, and may we will never gain weight from all the cooking and eating we'll do in upcoming year.

Try This: One Pot Pasta. I love pasta. We eat it for dinner at our house quite often. Why not? It's easy and quick to make, super delicious and there's about a million and one ways to serve it, so you won't feel like you're eating the same thing all the time. One pasta recipe I've been wanting to try for a while now is this one pot pasta. The basic idea is you cook ingredients for a rustic sauce along with the dry pasta, so everything cooks together and is done at the same time. I like that you can easily customize too, I've seen variations on the basic recipe here, here and here. My one concern about this recipe was that the final dish would taste too simple. One Pot Pasta, serves 3-4. 16 oz. In a large pot combine the first ten ingredients listed above. Here's what the final dish looks like. The verdict: this was WAY more creamy and flavorful than I expected. Credits // Author and Photography: Emma Chapman. Sun dried tomato and mushroom pasta in a garlic and basil sauce.
