Mambo Italiano..

DH bought me a pasta roller for Christmas. I love to cook and have been attempting over the past year to make as much home made, preservative free, fresh and healthy food as I can. I have used the roller to make pirogi dough so far but (after finally finding the authentic pasta flour) I decided to make some basic fettuccine. DH and I braved the process together, we had fun and it was much easier than we thought. Here are some pictures of the process and finished product. Delicious!!

I also made the Sour Cream Chocolate Cupcakes from the cover of the latest Clean Eating Magazine. I think mine look just like the magazine picture. They are really good, but stuck badly to the liners. Next time I will either spray the tins and forget about the liners, or spray the liners.
