Spicy Fennel Pasta

I’ve been in a kind of savory-food block recently. I’ve been so busy at work that it’s been hard to have time cook, and then I’ve been so out of sorts that all I’ve wanted to do is bake. But a girl cannot live on baked goods alone. Well, I mean, she can, but it’s not a good idea. Today though, I was actually craving pasta. And not just pasta in general, but this pasta.

Fennel ahead!

The First Supper!

So this wasn’t my first dinner party, but it is the first once since I started this here little blog. As dinner parties go, this one was disjointed, to say the least. Indecision, one of my few (ha!) less-than-awesome personality traits, won over and I just couldn’t pick a theme. What I ended up with were loosely french appetizers, moroccan main course and an english dessert. You know how you’re never supposed to try out new recipes on guests? Yeah I don’t follow that rule. Dinner parties are my chance to experiment with a whole lotta recipes all at once. It might be ill advised, but shoot, it’s fun. Keep ‘er movin’, there’s more!
