I KNOW!!! [/Monica]

I know, I know, it's been over 3 months since I last posted about food. Truth be told, I haven't been making anything new lately. Can you believe Nathaniel was here for 6 days and I didn't cook ANYTHING for him? Honestly, how can I be expected to win a man's heart if I don't cook for him? It's my one true talent. The only thing I did while he was here is bake lemon cupcakes for a friend's birthday, and they were terrible!

I did just make a puttanesca that would make you slap your Italian mamma (Krysten and Tom... I don't know who else here has an Italian mamma... oh, Gina!). Olive oil, onions, garlic, basil, oregano, cannalini beans, mushrooms, kalamata olives, a squeeze of tomato paste (not sauce), whole grape tomatoes, and fresh kale- with a dash of hot pepper flakes and freshly grated parmesan- over spaghetti. It was quite tasty, if I do say so myself.

Sorry I've been so boring lately in the food arena.... *sigh*

Those lemon cupcakes? Damn. They sounded good.
