Boy-Approved Spiked Pasta (Spaghetti with Vodka Cream Sauce) My boyfriend P has a busy, active job and is often too busy to eat a big lunch, if any lunch at all. It's no surprise then that he comes home hungry at only 5 p.m. For those days especially, I have a list of go-to meals that can be whipped up in no time. And while P's sweet enough to try almost anything I cook, I reserve this list for only the dishes he gets excited about. P's not much of a foodie. I'd actually seen many versions of this dish long before, yet was always scared off by their copious use of heavy cream. Do you also have a go-to list of quick, delicious meals for those really hectic days? Spaghetti with Vodka Cream Sauce [Printable Recipe] Slightly adapted from Cooking Light Serves 3 to 4 XIAOLU'S NOTES: I HIGHLY recommend using fire-roasted canned tomatoes for this recipe -- it adds that much more depth to the flavor! Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Lottie + Doof & My Favorite Cake. Period. I use the word “favorite” too often. But this time I think I mean it. This cake is the cake I make for myself. Of course even as I type this I am thinking of other favorite cakes, which I will eventually get around to sharing— but this is the most important.

Beer Milkshakes This week, the human interest news cycle is a-buzz with the announcement of a Samuel Adams Octoberfest Milkshake available this fall at burger chain Red Robin. Yes, it has beer in it. But ManMakers, beer lovers, and all-around interesting people alike have known for years thatthe bitter, sweet, and complex malty flavors and aromas of beer are a perfect match for the rich creaminess of ice cream, and while I guess it's noteworthy that a megacompany like Red Robin are incorporating it into their seasonal menu, it's not terrifically ground breaking or mysterious. So, here are three of my favorite beery shake recipes, any of which could be adapted with a fall lager a drizzle of caramel sauce, and be just as fun to make at home. 1. 2. 3. Do you have a favorite boozey dessert? Top photo from Red Robin, via Foodbeast

Tasteologie My I-thought-I-had-an-original-idea ice cream cone cupcake pan Don’t you hate it when you get all your ice cream cones filled with batter only to have them tip over and spill in the pan when you try to put them in the oven? I decided to make a pan prototype to bake my cones in to stop the spills and mess! Yup, I made a prototype. But my dreams were crushed when I realized someone else already designed one. So much for my big break. BUT considering I wasted so much time making my pan, I’m going to show you it anyway. I bought this cheap tin pan from the 99 cent store. I took a sharpie and measured out a 3 x 4 square grid. Once my circles were cut out I just flipped it over and put it on a cookie sheet. Brilliant, right? And just for fun I took a picture of what it looks like from the underside. So there you have it. And now for a 2nd tutorial on how to make Cupcake cones. Fill the cones with batter. Rearing and ready to go. Bake them the same way you’d bake cupcakes. Now for the icing. Like I did for the batter, I LOVE icing cupcakes the same way.
