· pasta night ·







I met Brandi back in November at this pop-up shop in NJ, where she provided several yummy treats...the most favorite of the treats being her Dark Chocolate Dipped Citrus Olive Oil Cake (so good!). After chatting with Brandi I learned that she had just moved to DC, so she's practically my neighbor! We soon had made plans to get together, and since she loves to cook, she offered to have me over for homemade pasta. So the week before Christmas Brandi kindly prepared an awesome meal for us, which included linguine with garlic and basil...easily the best linguine I have ever had. I didn't get a photo of the dessert, but it was also quite yummy, brandied apples with vanilla bean ice cream and a cup of hot apple cider...perfect winter dessert.

Thanks again to Brandi for being such a generous hostess, I really enjoyed getting to know you better and I look forward to our next meet up!

Visit Brandi at: not your average ordinary, and at her food blog pizzelles.

Looks like you got to play with the cats too! It was great to meet you yesterday. I think homemade pasta may be the secret to making new blog friends.
