Cooking Class!

       Yesterday my mom, dad and I went to a really awesome cooking class at the Loretta Paganini Culinary School of Cooking.  We went to a really cool pasta making class where you get to make your own homemade pasta in the flavors of, original, spinach pasta, tomato pasta and even...


Chocolate pasta!
With a delicious raspberry sauce! 

I know it sounds weird!  I even thought it sounded really weird at first too!  But once we made it in class and tried it, I thought it was one of the best pastas that I had ever eaten, like in my whole life!  The pasta making process was really fun too!  You have to roll out the dough, (it's only made with flour, one egg and salt.) and then you flatten it out with a really cool machine, and then finally, the coolest step, you put the now thin pasta in a different part of the machine, and the pasta gets cut into perfect noodle strips! It's so cool!

Anyway I did tell you (in my last post) that if the lemon ice cream that I made turned out good, I would share the recipe with you!  And the lemon ice cream was amazing!!  Here's the recipe!

  • Another lemon, juiced

  • 2 cups of white sugar (If you aren't a person who likes things pretty sweet, cut it down to 1 cup.)

  • 4 cups of milk

Here are the directions!! :)

In a medium bowl, stir together lemon juice and zest with sugar until smooth. Stir in milk.  Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers' directions.

  1. Sounds like fun, it makes me want to dust off my old pasta machine

  2. Wow, sounds realllll far out!!! ;) I'll have to try it))

  3. Great idea to learn something from scratch! I used to take Saturday classes to learn gourmet recipes like filo pastry chicken, and fancy chocolates, handmade. Keep it up. Your friends will love your cooking expertise! (Like the photo at the class, nice to see your parents.)

    1. That's really cool! :) Thanks for stopping by!!
