What is it about rainy weather that immediately makes me crave comfort food?

And by comfort food I mean pasta and cheese.

Occasionally I meander into soup mode. Or tea and toast. But nine times out of ten, I’m going to choose a pasta + cheese combo.

These are my latest drool-worthy obsessions. I may have to make all of them this weekend.

Garlic Dumplings with Emmentaler cheese from SAVEUR (my favorite food magazine)

These two baked macaroni and cheese recipes: From Smitten Kitchen and The Chef and the Photographer

I have literally been daydreaming about this gnocchi mac and cheese from The Cutting Edge of Ordinary. Seriously–how amazing does that look? Sitting down with a big bowl of this and a steaming cup of tea and watching an Audrey Hepburn movie sounds like the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon.


xoxo have a happy weekend lovelies! whether there’s rain or shine…

    I want to live in every single one of these photographs. I would be delicious (is that a weird thing to want?).

    Thank you for inspiring my dinner this evening!
