Our heirlooms are cracked with imperfect glaze. My dad made them and when I went to college they were one of the few things that came with me. These have seen my apartments, our first home and us becoming husband and wife. Now Hughes and Jettie. They’ve made banana bread, Hughes Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies, pumpkin muffins and doughs of pie, pizza, and pasta. They nestle together perfectly and sit in a special place in our new kitchen, designed around them with handmade Zeilgle tile and open shelving to show them off.

When Hughes and Jettie move on to their own adventures they will each take one along on their travels through life to remember our sun filled kitchen and hundreds of meals made from these bowls. But for now we’ll enjoy our current favorite pasta. Lemon with cracked pepper and brown butter.

You can add what makes you happy to this simple pasta recipe. Butter, tomatoes sauce, parmesan cheese, or go fancy with our current favorite additions below.

Homemade Pasta with Lemon, Brown Butter, Parmesan and Cracked Pepper

1 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup semolina flour (extra for dusting)
3 large eggs


1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon whole peppercorn craked
1 lemon zested


Using a meduim mixing bowl mesure flours and stir lightly with hands. Create a well inside bowl for 3 eggs to go into. Add all eggs and use a fork to stir the eggs in their well slowly letting the flour slowly incorporate. We found this way it easiest for kids but you can make this step well method, with a stand mixer, or even food processor. Once it starts coming together, fold over dough, making sure the concestany is crumbly but holds together. If it’s not wet enough you can add a teaspoon or two of water or if it’s too sticky just add more flour. The dough will become elastic after around 5-10 minutes of kneading.


Let dough rest in covered bowl for 15 minutes while you get your toppings together and water boiling. Hughes and Jettie love grated Parmesan, lemon zest, brown butter, and cracked pepper. Grate the parmesan and cheese in one bowl. For the pepper make sure to use a mortar a pestle or crack it in a zip lock with a rolling pin. The amount seams like a lot but when the peppercorns are cracked they’re less spicy. The best way to brown butter is taking a small pot and cook on medium heat until it foams and the mild solids turn really beautifully brown.


When the dough is rested, cut into 4 pieces to make it easy to roll out using an attachment or rolling pasta maker. When the sheets of pasta are ready dust with semolina flour and either use an attachment or cut the noodles. Dust with more semolina so they don’t stick together.  Gently add, in 2 batches, noodles to boiling water. When they rise to the top give just another 30 seconds and take them out of water. The whole boiling time is super short, only 2-3 minutes.


Add your favorite additions, set the table with pretty bowls, and enjoy!

date with Paris clary pfeiffer 1

Left or right? This is how we navigate through cities while traveling. There’s no wrong way. Our easy sprits linger through the day, letting it unfold. But this visit to Paris we made a date. We wore our favorite shoes and planned each stop with exact directions to stop by Fuji color paintings at Musée d’Orsay and float by Norte Dame. Enjoying our favorite cafes and an important macaroon stop.
