January 28, 2013


So, I’m going to go ahead and pretend that it hasn’t been almost five months since my last post.

(Eeep! Five months!)

My lack of posting has not been from a lack of cooking.

Ah, Valentine’s Day.

Okay, technically, yes, it’s a bit of a corporate greeting card holiday.

But, hey, any excuse to be romantic, right?

Last V-day, I presented you with the lover’s lasagna.

Ravioli lasagna
