I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

CAPRESE TORTELLINI

CAPRESE TORTELLINI

IMG_5519-b.jpg
We recently planted our garden and I can't wait until our tomatoes grow so that I can make all of my favorite caprese dishes. I have plenty of basil. I also want to make some mozzarella cheese-which will be a new experience, but we love fresh mozzarella around here! I could eat caprese pizza, caprese baguette sandwiches and this pasta everyday!

Caprese Tortellini
1 Package tortellini (I always find mine in the refrigerated section at the grocery store)
Fresh mozzarella pearls
Fresh basil, chopped
Tomatoes, chopped
Balsamic vinegar dressing (see below)

1. Cook the tortellini as the package directs. Drain it, take it off the heat and toss in the basil, tomatoes, mozzarella and stir in some of the balsamic vinegar dressing. How much tortellini you cook, will determine how much tomato, basil, mozzarella and dressing you need. Add it all to taste. You can serve this warm or cold. 

Balsamic Vinegar Dressing Recipe: 
(from the food network)

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup olive oil

1. Put all of the ingredients in a tupperware bowl or other container with a tight lid then shake like crazy to combine.
