Mariposa asks us for this week's Fun Monday to tell how the NAME of our BLOG was made and also our favorite but most common dish.
The name of my blog came out from alone. When I started surfing on Internet one and a half year ago and discovered forums, chat rooms and finally blogs I immediately thought that's something for me ! I must have one ! Since my teen age years I loved to write and always had a diary but of course nobody could read me, it was written in exercise books or whatever and that was it.
So when I found out how to create and make up a blog I thought now I will write and write and write until I get writer's cramps ! And the name of my blog was born !
I don't really have ONE favourite dish, I have several or it changes by periods. The one which comes in my mind right now is Tagliatelle alla Carbonara.
Tagliatelle is the classic pasta of the Emilia-Romagna a region of Italy. Individually, they are long, flat ribbons, about 0.65cm to 1cm (0.25 to 0.375 inches) wide.
The Carbonara consists of eggs, parmigiano cheese, and pancetta bacon strips. It is very easy to prepare. The eggs are added to the sauce raw, and cook with the heat of the pasta itself while you add the roasted pancetta strips and the cheese.
