Fettucine Carbonara with Roasted Tomatoes — Our Life In The Kitchen

Fettucine Carbonara with Roasted Tomatoes — Our Life In The Kitchen
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. Culinary Arts College » 100 Famous Restaurant Recipes You Can Replicate at Home Eating out is becoming a more and more popular phenomenon.

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.

Baked Eggs in Bacon Baskets This is such a nice idea for breakfast/brunch for a crowd.It is so simple, makes 12 at a time and the baskets stays warm, unlike scrambled eggs which always seem to get cold when left on the plate. There are many variations of this recipe on the blogosphere. I've tried it 2 weekends in a row, and I find that this method worked best. I made them 2 ways, some scrambled with cheese, and others just baked with a soft center.We couldn't decide which way we liked them best. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with PAM spray.
