This pasta is great for a weeknight, last-minute dinner. Though it has little redeeming nutritional value in its original form (its basically pasta, butter, pepper, and cheese), I usually use whole wheat pasta and olive oil to make it seem a little healthier. Regardless, it is scrumptious!

This is a Martha Stewart recipe.
I love cheese. I love cheese so much that I’ve thrown parties celebrating cheese. So when planning my birthday party this week, my thoughts naturally turned to how I could add cheese to the menu.
Some quick googling had me salivating over this Huffington Post slideshow. As I had never made baked brie before, I decided to check to see if Martha Stewart had a recipe because Martha’s recipes are always classic and well tested. I’m so glad I did. This brie was a hit! I highly recommend it for your next soiree.
This is a recipe from The Mozza Cookbook.
So I set off the smoke detector in my apartment the other day.
I’ve made this pizza recipe several times before, but I was always too lazy to dust the bottom of my dough with semolina flour. I’d already bought rye flour and wheat germ specifically for this recipe, so why drop close to $4 at Ralph’s for a finishing touch? This time, however, I was determined to “do it right.”
Ah, hubris. Within minutes of popping the pizza into the oven there was smoke, the wailing of smoke detectors, and the gnashing of teeth. I had forgotten to clear away the excess semolina flour, which was rapidly turning into carbon in the 550 degree oven. Much flapping of dish towels and opening of windows ensued.
However, the pizza was still as delicious as always. I’ve tried several other homemade pizza recipes, and despite the funky/expensive ingredients, this really is the best. Just, you know, be careful not to burn your house down.
