I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Easy Bacon Carbonara

I can't resist carbonara! And I love the simplicity of it. Just a handful of ingredients and less than 30 minutes to serve up this classic Italian dish. (Well, pancetta instead of bacon would make it more classic, but I digress)  

1/2 lb bacon, cut in 2" pieces
3/4 lb spaghetti
4 egg yolks (1 per serving plus 1 extra)
1/2 cup 10% cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsley

Cook the bacon until crispy. Keep the fat.
Separate the eggs and put the whites in the fridge for another use.
Cook the spaghetti and drain. Then immediately stir in the egg yolks and quickly mix together so the eggs stay smooth and not scrambled looking. Add the cream to make a saucy consistency. Then toss in the bacon with some of the reserved fat, the parmesan, salt and pepper. Simmer until warmed through.

Garnish with fresh parsley.
Serves 3
