With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I, Alex, wanted to share with you one of my favorite date-night meals, Cacio e Pepe. Literally translated as cheese and pepper, this minimalist date night pasta and cheese requires only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes to make. Since no one wants to fuss in the kitchen on a romantic night in, put this pasta on your must-make list.
How can you go wrong with cheese and pasta? Even those of you who don’t enjoy cooking will find joy with this recipe. It’s practically fool-proof and will impress anyone you end up serving it to. Trust me, I’ve served this to many boyfriends (and now husband) over the years, all with rave reviews.
For the ultimate date-night in, enjoy with a bottle of your favorite red wine (and maybe a salad to balance all that cheese!). A classic Chianti or Sangiovese will balance the peppery pasta just perfectly.
I’m 100% one of those people who’s house looks super organized and neat until you open a closet and 200 things fall out all at once. Basically out of sight, out of mind is my life motto, and I’m now spreading that profound love to morning routine form with this DIY vanity tray with storage.
This DIY also happens to be great for those of you that do actually organize your things (please send me some of your good juju!), but just so happen to only like a few things on display — I.e.- your new blush is only cute for the first few weeks and then it starts to look like it has bald spots.
All of this to say that there’s a little something for everybody with this project, and I’m super excited to back into the swing of more home decor DIY’s!…
