a weekend in the kitchen

the first tray of homemade tortellini (double cheese/basil)

my homemade spaghetti sauce that i canned in the fall, recipe from the book which inspires my life.

sauce in the pan, waiting for tortellinnis

tada! they were delicious, if a tiny bit time consuming (just under 2 hours to make 120 pieces)

martha stewart’s dark chocolate sour cherry cookie dough. i dried the cherries myself.

1/4 cup of batter per cookie, as instructed!

silpat vs parchment. i got the silpat for christmas and i’m still not sure i’m totally sold on it yet.

the weekend was fun. aside from my usual weekend perma-guest, we entertained a friend who came over for a weekend of cycling and food. i have another post coming up – apparently i need to make more frequent posts because i have lots of material to post about, i just don’t get around to actually putting it up!

  1. I so totally LOVE “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle”!! I made her sauce too. I find it so aromatic and sweet, that it’s almost too much. Do you know what I mean?

    Also, good stuff on the tortellini! That’s dedication. Have you made your own pasta before? I never have.

    And, those chocolate cookies look phenomenal.
