I loved watching and learning from my grandma in the kitchen. My favorite dish of hers was gnocchi. I remember the time in high school when my parents actually went out one night and left me alone. I went straight to the kitchen and made my grandma's recipe for gnocchi for the first time because mom was not there to tell me "You're making it wrong!" I still remember the joy I felt when my first attempt turned out well. I still get just as excited when I tackle new recipes. I will be devoting my summer break to trying out several of the tear-out recipes that have been accumulating. I would love share this experience with you on my blog with step-by-step picture recipes.
By the way, the shorts I am wearing are my new favorites by Nike. I picked these up in a size xs at Sport Chalet a few weeks back. I love them so much that I am considering getting them in another color. Expect a review post soon! Also, the Navarre Indoor/Outdoor Rug by Ballard Designs is the perfect kitchen rug! We have had our black runner for over a year. Not only is it easy to clean (vacuum or beat it outside once a week), but it holds up to multiple cats! This piece is currently on a limited discount for only $35. Based off of 131 reviews, it has received 4.5 out of 5 stars.
