i have a confession… i am a terrible, awful cook. i burn everything. but one thing i can do is pasta, and one of my favorite spring/summer dishes is lemon pasta. i know it sounds really simple – and it is – but i’d never had it until a guy made it for me and to this day i still can’t make it as well as he did, but i’m sure you guys can.
all i really do is make pasta as i would normally (my favorite kind is angel hair pasta), and for sauce i mix together some butter, olive oil and lemon juice in a pan and drizzle on top, add some pepper and that’s it. but i was looking around online, and i think this would be amazing with some snow peas or edamame mixed in, and apparently some chopped parsley makes a great garnish :)
“temari is an ancient folk art form originating in china and later introduced to japan by traveling chinese monks. first crafted as a child’s toy from remnants of old silk kimonos, temari evolved into an art form adopted by noble women in japan’s imperial society and handed down from mother to daughter.”
awesome. must learn how to do this. all of the above by julie and co.
one of our fp girls sent me these photos the other day, saying she was inspired by my vintage loves bag post last week me to make these cupcakes! she made them for the staff and customers at roosevelt field this weekend. don’t they look amazing?! i totally want to try to make some.
here’s how to make them!
buy a box of yellow cake mix and separate the batter into 6 bowls. add food coloring for red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and green. fill the cupcake liners with a little bit of each color – but don’t mix the colors! and there you go… tie dye cupcakes :)
