Strozzapreti - Fresh Hand Rolled Pasta

Strozzapreti - hand rolled pasta.  Fresh pasta is so much better than anything bought from the supermarket and is so easy to make!  This is a recipe my sister showed me using her Italian friend's instructions.

I have always been a bit nervous about making my own pasta because it seemed like it would be difficult without a pasta machine and I'd probably manage to mess up the recipe somehow.  How wrong I was!  Ok, there might be some types of pasta that are quite difficult to make but these Strozzapreti are hard to get wrong - you don't even need to make sure that they are all the same shape or size.

Photo a Day 2015: January

Slipper boot cladded feet up in front of the telly watching the New Year fireworks and here were are…

…January - a new year, a fresh page, a clean start, etc, etc.  There will be people around the world who set goals for themselves starting on the very first day of the year.  I'm not one of those people I'm afraid.  I want to have acheivable goals so I won't feel like a failure if I don't stick to them 100% and may decide halfway through the year that I want to set myself a new goal.  And that's ok, don't you think?

Last year my only resolution was to start a "photo a day" challenge and pretty much kept to my resolution.  I loved it so much that (you probably guessed if you're reading this) I decided to carry it on for another year.

My other resolutions I wanted to think about a little more and yes, I could have thought about them pre-New Year but…well…I didn't.

So here are my resolutions for 2015…
