it started….the spring chaos.

baseball, ballet recitals, end of the year parties, applications for the pool.

and then yesterday…among the chaos, boston.

i have no words.

it kind of left me speechless and anxiety ridden.

today has been one moment after another.

one of my friends said it so simple “people of earth: let’s try to be good to each other”

there is just to much bad. i’m tired of it.

my plan today: hug my kids, hold my husbands hand, smile more, bake cookies, eat a lot of pasta.

pasta helps. pasta always helps.

be good. be good to each other.


sausage and pepper over pasta

  • 3 sweet sausage links
  • 2 tbl canola oil
  • 2 onions sliced
  • 2 peppers sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic sliced
  • red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • handful of fresh basil
  1. turn your oven onto broil and heat up. put your sausage on a cookie tray or broil proof dish. sprinkle with a pinch of salt, pepper and a tbl spoon of canola oil. broil sausage turning occasionally for about 7 minutes. take out of oven and let rest. 
  2. meanwhile, slice onion, peppers and garlic. sauté in a big skillet in 1 tbl canola oil. season with a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes. mix and let cook until onion starts to turn a golden brown translucent color. 
  3. while this is all happening slice sausage.
