Braised Short Rib Pasta with Horseradish Cream Sauce combines my ideal winter Saturday—staying home to cook comfort food—with my ideal way to celebrate my birthday, Valentine’s Day, Ground Hog Day, or any other day I can passably justify as a special occasion: letting someone else cook.
On Friday (Valentine’s Day), the last thing I wanted to do was make dinner, yet at 9 a.m. the next morning, I hit the kitchen and proceeded to cook and bake for 5 straight hours. I adored every minute.
Plus, occupying myself with a boozy chocolate pie , fairy-light cookies , and other yumminess (all coming soon!) meant that I was far too busy and important for silly things like preparing my taxes. Boozy pie or taxes? I think you know the right answer.
