Girls Talk - Food, Food....Glorious Food!

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

I must confess that I'm a picky eater.

And I eat. A lot. Of all the wrong kinds. This is actually why I have weight problems at the moment and I am trying to get fit and healthy. I've even dedicated a blog series, The Food Diarist, about it. But anyways, I am going off on a tangent again.....

I started talking about food because this week's topic for Girls Talk is just that. Food and all its glory.

My recent cravings would suggest that I am currently into food that comes from the land of pasta (pasta ba ikamo?) - Italy! After my European excursion last December, I am really deeply salivating for the perfect spaghetti carbonara, which I tasted in Rome. And now I can't find it here. Boo-hoo-hoo! I've even decided to try my hand at it a few times but with limited successes.

So far, the best recipe I found was from Panlasang Pinoy. They've even got a Youtube video up for it.


So I will share this video for now until I can perfect mine.

So what's your share for Girls Talk this week?
