Spaghetti Carbonara


Attention! Two highly needed components to cooking have been missing! Has anyone seen them? They're called inspiration and motivation, appearance unknown. Their last whereabouts were in me a long time ago. The more I'm searching for them, the more lost they seem. So I thought I'd share this sad occurrence, maybe someone has seen them :)

Seriously, it's been quite a while since I felt that urge to make or bake something fantastic. I do have cravings and I do cook (sometimes) but they're just nothing special. Hopefully, as spring rolls in, inspiration will too! 

So when it came to Sunday lunch that is a sacred family thing for us, we had the dilemma of what to make... Soup was a given and I thought about making something Italian. That was the moment when I had the epiphany! Let's make carbonara! It's crazy easy and totally delicious :) I adapted the original recipe a bit as I added mushrooms and a squeeze of lemon juice. They totally make the difference! They are amazing for any weekday night when you feel like having some comfort food and like within 30 minutes! :)

Spaghetti Carbonara
yields 4 people

1/2 package spaghetti
5 slices bacon or pancetta
4 eggs
1 cup parmesan cheese
4 big mushrooms
1/2 lemon
parsley, salt, pepper

Cook the spaghetti according to the package's instructions. When draining the pasta, leave 1 cup of the cooking water.

Cut the bacon and mushrooms into pieces. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large pan and add the bacon to it. Cook it for about 6 minutes and then add in the mushrooms. Cook for another 5 minutes. 

While the bacon-mushrooms are cooking, whisk the eggs in a smaller bowl. Add the parmesan cheese and mix it well. Season it with salt and pepper.

When the mushrooms look cooked and ready, stir in the spaghetti. Pour the egg mixture on top and the reserved cooking water and mix it well. Cook for about 5 minutes, add salt if needed and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve with another sprinkle of parmesan and a squeeze of lemon juice! Enjoy :)

  2. It says to keep a cup of the cooking water why it doesn't say where to use it?

    1. You are so right! My bad! It should go to the pasta when you mix it with the egg mixture. I'm gonna correct it now. Thank you for letting me know :)

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
