Today’s blog post will be a little different:  Instead of doing just one recipe of my own, I want to share a few recipes from other blogs or sites that I use all the time and really love (sometimes with a little modification):  graham crackersGerman chocolate cake, and frozen chocolate pie.

Yes, 8-bit nerds all around, that is supposed to be the Magikoopa magic spell symbol thingy.  :-)  What can I say, my brother’s exploits defy expression through any medium but the ludo-arcane.  Or at least, his birthday cake did.  :-D

Hey there! Sorry this isn’t as prompt as usual; though we aren’t yet moving, all the prep work just ate up this weekend. In addition, it seems to have eaten my camera. Hopefully I’ll find it soon (I need it for several things!), but until then you don’t get any pictures. Sorry. However, this is a tasty, quick, and easy dinner even if you’ll have to make it to see it (for the time being), so I hope you’ll benefit from the post anyway.

This post is really about three things thrown together — one, how to make pasta dough with a food processor, two, how to make pasta that’s green or orange, and three, how to make bowtie noodles.  The food processor is a neattrick, and my future retort on all occasions when my dad wants to know why I watch cooking shows whenever I’m at his house — you never know when you’ll learn something useful!
