A little over a year ago my friend Kelly offered me a spot in her book club.
I soon learned it was just as much about the food and wine as it was about the book.
This was a club I could be a part of!
Carly was the hostess with the mostest this month and with the help of Mario Batali she cooked us up an amazing dish:
I love the look of the red onions in this fluorescent bowl.
Not only was our hostess a great cook, but she looked good too
Sometimes book club calls for beer.
We have two vegetarians in the group which has actually helped expand my cooking repertoire
I usually fall back on the classic chicken or beef, but from these dinners I have eaten treats I wouldn't normally indulge in, this is one of them.
Carly doesn't know it yet but I am slowly but surely going to start stealing her cookware.
Living with so many people at "the frat" we've settled on $9.99 nonstick pots from Bed Bath & Beyond, but Carly has the real deal which made cooking easier and to be honest, more enjoyable.
So watch your back Car.
Cheers, pasta is served!
It doesn't stop here ....
