5 Ingredient Spaghetti Carbonara

8 Jan

Every family has that meal that reminds them of childhood. In our family my Dad traveled a lot for work, so when he was home it was a special treat, especially when he cooked. My Dad had a few recipes that he did over and over again, but by far our favorite was his spaghetti carbonara. Unlike the carbonara you can get in restaurants that has a heavy cream sauce and peas, this carbonara is lighter and very simple to make. The trick to making this carbonara just right is dump the hot pasta water, immediately put the spaghetti back in the pot, add the eggs and toss very quickly so that the egg coats the strands of pasta and does not turn into scrambled eggs. This meal is delicious with a fresh salad and garlic bread. You will be in bacon heaven!!


Home Made Croutons!

9 Dec

One of my favorite things at a restaurant is a good salad bar. Not with all those mayonnaise based salads and bacon bits, but one with unusual, fresh toppings, a large array of salad dressings and homemade bread. I bought a big loaf of fresh sourdough bread (my favorite) from price chopper and there was a big hunk left a few days later. I decided why not make some croutons! They would go perfectly with the salad and steak dinner we were planning. It took no time and we even had some left over that I plan to put on a salad for lunch today! I love easy, quick things that use up things I already have in the house. Enjoy!
