Color of the Month by Natalie Alexis; Orange!

Top; Asos, Skirt; H&M (tube top worn as skirt), Mary-Janes; Zara (for kids)
A Fellow girl from CuraƧao, Natalie Alexis has set up a facebook page filled with fun stuff,  One of the monthly items is the "Color of the Month", each month you can post an outfit picture with the "Color of the Month" and if you get the most votes you win something! Last month the color was Turquoise and I won! With the picture below (you might remember it from an earlier post).
This month the color is Orange! ofcourse to support the Dutch team in the Euro-Cup. Unfortunately they lost from the Germans last night, but all the more reason to support them all the way!
Hup Holland Hup!!

Fresh Pasta Cooking

Last weekend we went to a "fresh pasta" cooking class. We made the pasta from scratch, linguini, tortellini and ravioli. With a filling of spinach/ricotta and parmesan cheese. It took us all afternoon, you have to do a lot of kneading and carefully getting the dough as thin as possible. In the end it is so yummy and so worth it! I highly recommend to either take a pasta cooking class or to find a recipe online and just give it a go! 
 Oh and I got some cute ideas from this cooking place!
> Get (hermetic) jars to store cooking products in, simply paint a little swatch with chalk-board paint and label the product (image above)
> Plant herbs in medium rustic pots and let them grow into little herb bushes (first image)
2 easy sauce recipes;
1. Burro e salvia - Melt butter (enough for a sauce) in a little pan, add fresh sage, a little garlic is optional. Done!
2. Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino - chop garlic, a red peper (seeded) and parsley. heat olive oil in a pan, add all finely chopped ingredients and cook till almost a bit brown.

Et Voila! yummy sauces for your fresh pasta!
