Here goes something…
My very first attempt making homemade whole wheat pasta or pasta of any kind for that matter!
Basic Pasta Dough:
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
In a medium sized bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the flour, add the slightly beaten egg, and mix. Mixture should form a stiff dough. If needed, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons water.
On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for about 3 to 4 minutes. With a pasta machine or by hand roll dough out to desired thinness. Use machine or knife to cut into strips of desired width.
I chose to use my brand new chrome & red Imperia Pasta Machine my wonderful husband gifted me for Christmas this year. He also built me a custom drying rack, those out of stock stores be damned, my hubby can build!

I am starting this blog in hopes to inspire a little cooking, fresh foods eating and urban gardening in the Richmond, VA area. I fell in love with cooking a long long time ago and urban/container gardening last spring and summer when I planted my first container garden and ate the resulting bounty.
I did not have the ability to plow a plot of land. I started researching container and square foot gardening. As it turns out, there are quite a few veggies and herbs the not only do well in containers but thrive.
On this site I am going to provide as much info, recipes, how to’s and as many photos of our gardening, cooking, most importantly EATING and hopefully inspire you to COOK SOMETHING!!
