Fettucine Carbonara with Roasted Tomatoes — Our Life In The Kitc

Fettucine Carbonara with Roasted Tomatoes — Our Life In The Kitc
I’ve been craving Carbonara for a while now but was having a hard time justifying the calories. The willpower was gone when I thought about throwing in some of the surplus cherry tomatoes from the garden. I also planned to make fresh homemade fettucine but I was too lazy busy to get around to it. Enter Plan B. Go to the store for fresh-ish Buitoni. Strike that. Fettucine, a pound of dry or a couple of boxes of fresh or your own homemade.Pancetta, 3/4 poundYellow or White Onion, 1 mediumGarlic, 5 or 6 clovesEggs, 3Cream, 1 1/2 cupsFreshly Grated Parmesan, 1 cupCoarse Ground Black PepperCherry Tomatoes, 2 dozen or so Put the water for the fettucine up to boil. Dice the pancetta. Rinse the tomatoes and spread them on a baking pan. Fry up the pancetta in a large saute pan. While the pancetta is cooking and the tomatoes are broiling, slice the onion and chop the garlic. Whisk together the eggs, cream and cheese. By now the pancetta should be getting crispy. Add the pancetta… ..and the tomatoes.

Make Your Own Homemade Snickers Bars - Food - Lifehacker @Jason: The experience of it! It's like asking a chef why they cook, they do it for the fun of it. Sure, you could buy the candies for 17 dollars, but that's no fun. Now making them, that's something you can tell your friends about. That, and making candy can help boost your standing in the workplace, if your boss is that kind of person. Enchilada Lasagna This is without a doubt my husbands all time favorite dish. I got this recipe from his sister, and made just a few tiny adjustments to it. It is a very mild Mexican dish, and pretty much fail proof. I don't make it often enough though, specially if you ask my hubby.

Involtini: Feta & Prosciutto Rolls - David Lebovitz I was having drinks at a friend’s house last night, who is a cuistot, the French slang for a cook. I don’t think you’d say cuistat for a woman, but whatever you want to call us, the conversation pretty much stayed on one topic: Food. We talked literally for hours while we drank brisk sauvignon blanc and picked apart an amazing wedge of 30 month-old Comté cheese from a giant wedge on a cutting block positioned strategically between us. For some reason, the conversation turned to food intolerances and allergies, which aren’t all that well-known in France. I’ve never been invited to a dinner party at a French person’s house and quizzed about what I don’t eat in advance.

Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart I had a great story to tell you about these tarts involving me and my sister in Paris, a scrumptious round of Camembert grillé and a crunchy baguette, a long walk on foot from my sister's tiny apartment at rue Miollis (15ème arrondissement) to rue Cail (10ème), samosas at Krishna and shopping spices at Ganesha, then on our way back dropping ourselves in a small local pastry shop (not as trendy as Hermé or Aoki, but with it's own charm) for these little salted caramel life boosters and a looong walk on foot (again) to rue Cler(7ème) for a late Friday night Mojito with friends. Yup, comfy shoes on our feet and large smiles on our faces – this is all we needed not to care about the rain nor the cool winter wind. But the cursor was blinking nasty on the white page and although my head was full of stories, nothing was coming out of my fingers on the keyboard. After a week the page was still white and the cursor was still blinking as if laughing at me. For the Crust: For the Caramel:
