Cheesy Cabanara

"This is my mother-in-laws recipe with a few tweaks to it. It is absolutely delicious, but beware, it is by no means the healthiest choice for dinner. It is very rich and filling, but it is wonderful for a big pasta dish if you're in the mood."

  1. I just couldn't get into this...too much oil/grease
  2. This recipe is so easy and very tasty! The bacon flavor is different, but really sets of this pasta dish. Thanks for a keeper!


I am originally from New York, but currently I am residing in the original York in England. My husband is an Englishman born and raised and changed my life in a huge way, not just geographically. Moving submersivley into a new culture was one of the best things I could ever do for my cooking. I've loved cooking and baking since I was young and I have always found it soothing. When I moved I sometimes had to alter my recipes to fit the ingredients that were available to me, sometimes these alterations worked for the better! Sometimes they didn't. I find cooking soothing and it gives me a sense of accomplishment. I love cooking for my husband who is in the army and has been eating army food for years now. It's nice to have someone appreciate my hard work. He even cleans the dishes for me... well, at least most of the time he does. One of my favorite things to do when it comes to food is finding ways to make my favorite foods still taste wonderful while using fresher, healthier, and less calorific ingredients. Although I love to treat myself, and my muffin top is proof of that, I also enjoy staying healthy and finding new creative ways of doing it. I also enjoy singing, I am a classically trained singer but don't do it professionally. I love to write and would love to do that professionally, but I think that's a time will tell sort of thing. I also spend a lot of my time reading, playing my wii, spending time with my husband and dog, missing my friends and family back home, and SHOPPING!
