After being on the road (again) for another week, I finally had a few days at home to catch up on cooking and other household projects. Yesterday I was in the mood to make a fresh batch of pasta from my beloved Lillo Due Professional Extruder; I know I owe friends some pasta I promised to send out around the holidays but I’m still working on perfecting drying for long-term storage and shipping. In the meantime, that means I get to make lots of pasta for myself and the sweetie, who never complains when it’s pasta night.

The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
