With the holidays coming up (fast), some of us will be retreating into the kitchen to bake goodies for presents or for entertaining. I admit, this is the only time of year I even LOOK at my bundt cake pan. And yes, I have had the stuck cake in the pan experience. I only wish I had known these tricks, I could have saved those hapless cakes 🙂
Bucatini is a pasta, it is a bit like a pasta straw in that it is thicker than most spaghetti and is hollow down the middle like a straw. Consequently, it is satisfyingly chewy and also holds a lot of the sauce!
Trying to provide sweet and yet healthy treats is a constant struggle for parents (and even non-parents). These cookies are healthy and sweet and it is up to you how you decorate them for whichever holiday or special event you wish to make them for. 🙂 Added plus, these are wheat-free!

What if I told you that you don’t need fancy equipment to make delicious pasta. And further that you can do it with only two ingredients – AND it will be totally vegan!? Well I’m telling you now! And this is a great way to use your pumpkin after it is done decorating your table! It can decorate your plates as a fabulous meal.

After cutting fresh pasta, you can cook it immediately or refrigerate it. If not cooking pasta noodles right away, let them dry on a baking sheet for 1 to 2 minutes, dust well with flour so the strands will not stick together, and loosely fold them or form into small nests. Let dry for about 30 minutes more, then wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days. The pasta may be frozen for up to 2 weeks.
