This delicious pasta recipe that I’ve been begging for since having it at a dear friend’s home several years ago. Made with a small pasta (I used orecchiette as my friend did), it is cooked like a risotto and finished off with goats cheese and parmesan.
I’m sure we’ve all read about the wonders of various concoctions of vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice and essential oils. And I’m not bashing those at all. I have used them myself for specific purposes such as cleaning silver or brass or getting a rust stain out of the bathroom tile. But on a day-to-day basis, I simply don’t have the time (or desire) to mix up my own laundry liquid.
I came across this idea while researching expensive air purifiers for our new home. Because we had the entire house repainted (with zero VOC paint) and the floors refinished (sealed with non-toxic AFM Safecoat – more on that in a future post), plus more than a few odds and ends repaired, I was concerned about any lingering fumes or products off-gassing and affecting our family.
I brought back lots of goodies from my trip to Japan and finally got around to photographing them so that I can show-and-tell my shopping experience!
