Herb pasta and a big thank you on supporting me to 100th post!

I am happy to report I stuck to this project long enough to make it to post 100! For this post I am going to give you a super simple pasta dish, but mostly I want to thank some of the people that have inspired me in this journey with their blog, their comments and their support. Read the post to the end and grab your well deserved awards!

Herb pasta and a big thank you on supporting me to 100th post!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 Servings


  • pasta (your favorite kind)
  • EVOO
  • herbs (your favorites: I used sage, thyme, rosemary and chili flakes)
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. For the pasta I just cooked pasta and tossed it with olive oil and herbs. Pasta was just boiled in salted water according to instructions, for the "sauce" I mixed in a bowl enough olive oil to toss pasta in, rosemary, thyme, sage, and a tiny bit of chili flakes. I put the bowl in the microwave for about 30 sec to warm up the oil and extract the flavor from the herbs and then tossed my pasta with the dressing. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
  2. It is usually my go to dish when I am home alone for lunch and I've been working so hard I suddenly realize I am starving and have to eat something right now!

Now onto the honoring and thanking.
First thanks to Manu from Manu’s Menu for my last award. Thanks to her now I am in the sisterhood! Also her blog is great, with awesome Italian recipes and step by step pictures. Stop by her home on the web to check out all the great things she posts.

I am passing it on to all fellow bloggHers that have commented on my blog. ChristineClaireErinFionaKateKimberlyKristinaLindaManuNamiNicoleSandraSuzieTiffany, just to name the few that have commented more recently, but if you are a lady blogger and have commented on my blog feel free to grab the award and pass it along to other fabulous bloggers just like you!

And another big thank you to Sandra of Sandra’s Easy Cooking for sharing with me the Beautiful Blog award. I don’t think my blog is nearly as beautiful as hers or many other wonderful blogs out there, but I take the award as an encouragement to keep working and improving. Check out her page to see what a beautiful blog really looks like and try some of her great and simple recipe!

To be fair to the other gender, I am going to pass this on to the gentlemen blogger who stop by and support me. Chef Dennis, Frank, Paolo, just to name the few that have wrote something most recently. But if you have been stopping by feel free to grab the award

Then I want to thank all my followers and readers. It is great to know that there is someone out there that cares about what I write enough to visit my blog, follow its progress and comment on successes and mishaps. Knowing that my blog has followers and visitors and commenters keeps me posting even when I am swamped with things to do. It’s like having a little family that I don’t want to disappoint.

So for all of you who have been reading my blog and maybe trying some of my recipes: a big THANK YOU! and a small award to share with the ones who keep you going:
