Chef Cece

My dinner last night was a huge hit. The food was awesome - but to me, the best was the pasta salad. I wanted to share the recipe here, because it was super easy! A bunch of reviews said the vinaigrette was too strong on the vinegar - but I didn't find that at all. I wonder if the people who said that didn't read the directions, where you were only supposed to dress the salad with 3/4 of a cup of the dressing. Anyway, everyone loved it, and I will totally make it again.

It was also great to get the baby stuff out of the house - I even got rid of a bouncy seat. Kate doesn't understand yet the importance of having a place to put the baby down - but thankfully Darrin's sister was there to convince her. You know, because I know nothing about babies. Sigh.

Anyway - I love cooking for a big group and having everyone over. There were 7 adults at the table, talking, enjoying the dinner and admiring the baby. And can I tell you how nice it is to be holding a sweet little baby? And when she would wake up and cry? I could hand her off! Perfect!!!

That salad sounds really good and nice and summery. I'll have to try it!
