Pasta and White Beans Gratin
dirty martini
clint and chanelle - makers and eaters of food!
About this Cook
my specialty? making food. eating food. not cleaning up after i make the food or eat the food.
My favorite things to cook
desserts are my specialty - especially brownies. i also love making italian meals, and especially love making and inventing new pizzas. we looooooooove pizza around here!
My favorite family cooking traditions
it is my goal to make homemade birthday desserts for my family. last year, for my son's second b-day, i made a chocolate cake and shaped it into a baseball hat. i must say, it was pretty cool. i had a blast doing that. this year, i have a "toy story" themed cake to invent, so wish me luck!
My cooking triumphs
i consider it a triumph each time my family clears their plates...
My cooking tragedies
i once made bean enchiladas with slow-cooked pinto beans...and something went SERIOUSLY wrong with the beans...they were heard as rocks after cooking all day - yuck! even our bachelor friend who was just grateful not to eat another tuna casserole (gack!)wouldn't eat it! haha - bleeah.

Pepperoncini Beef
SO EASY to make, and on a homemade roll with toasted provolone cheese, makes a great presentation! Thanks for this great idea!

Pasta and White Beans Gratin
This was wonderful! I cut the basil amount in half, and added a little liquid into the simmering beans. The overall mixture of flavour and texture was hearty and enjoyable!!! Thanks for a GREAT recipe!

Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary
wow - what a unique and tasty pizza! i used trader joe's cornmeal pizza dough and added a little garlic salt and a dash of cayenne to the squash prior to roasting. also, i topped the pizzas with the cheese during the last 10 minutes of baking. my husband dislikes squash and loved these! thanks! (the squash is a bit of a beast to cut before roasting...any suggestions?)
