Wanna really show off your homemade pasta? This is a fabulous recipe to take advantage, it’s not too harsh to overpower the delicate pasta, but it also really good in it’s own right.

I am afraid I have had a very busy couple of weeks and gotten behind on my posting. One of the causes of this was my Mum’s birthday last weekend. We had a large not-birthday party for her and I helped make a few treats. The first was my all-time favorite dessert – lemon tart. […]
