COMING SOON. A post and recipe from a Saturday dinner party for 10. But I cooked enough for 20. The recipe.... Saucy's sexy, serious, satisfying, calorie-laden( so what, eat-small-portions- if- you- can), irreverent ( but not irrelevant), readapted....CARBONARA. Someone called it "heart attack on-a-plate " ...but then they quickly went back for seconds...

Let me just say that my recipe should and will NEVER be confused with the delicious and classical version of  Spaghetti Carbonara . A wonderful recipe for that dish appears on page 131 of Giuliano's book.

So stay tuned for the deets on SAUCY and her guests as they munch and slurp on something that tastes sommmmme good. And by the way...the secret ?"SUPERBACON".... ( say that word very quickly, with certainty)


Hugs and hugs
