Penne Pasta with Garlic and Tomato

Image

This is the dish that will certainly take you into pure bliss. Mainly because of it’s taste and partly because it is so simple and uses so few ingredients. Vegans and picky kids will love and crave this one! This dish is also good anytime of the year and makes a good dish to take to a summer BBQ or block party. All the people will want to know about this one. 

What you’ll need:

  • 8 cloves of chopped fresh garlic, yes 8! Trust me.
  • 1 cup of EVOO 
  • 1 lb. of Campari Tomatoes chopped into large chunks
  • Sea Salt to Taste
  • A dash of course ground black pepper
  • 3/4 lb. of Penne Pasta cooked al dente 

How to:

Get your biggest fry pan out. I love using my Aluminum Wear-Ever Fry Pan. Gosh this pan is amazing.  Heat the olive oil slightly over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes.  Stir continuously to defuse but not burn the garlic. Then add your fresh tomatoes to the mix. Let them cook down to a sauce. This will take about 25 minutes. Stir often.  Add your sea salt and course ground black pepper to taste. Once your pasta is al dente, add the pasta to the sauce.  Cook on low about 5 minutes, salt and pepper to taste once again. If you feel like spicing it up a bit a dash of cayenne is lovely. Serve with warm toasty bread and salad. Love. 

Resurrection of inkoluv?

It’s been almost 5 years since I’ve posted anything here. Truth is, inkoluv is still around. I’ve been raising children and loving life. Life is different now being a stay at home mommy.

I recently started a new blog: Kimber’s Kitchen. It’s a place where I post all my original favorite recipes created right here in my humble kitchen.  Mostly this blog is a creative outlet for this mommy.

Inkoluv is pretty active on instagram. Living in a dream and recording it with photos from my iPhone.
My life is my home, my family, my friends, my food, my photos and I love to tell stories so let’s see if I can manage two blogs. Cheers!

Welcome to the World Mazzy!

Hey everyone!

Our little angel on her first day of a very surprise arrival. I am sure she will fill our lives with surprises from this day forward and we are ready. Josh and I are very blessed and in love with eachother and our little Mazzy Kat.

Our little angel on her first day of a very surprise arrival. I am sure she will fill our lives with surprises from this day forward and we are ready. Josh and I are very blessed and in love with eachother and our little Mazzy Kat.

Thanks for all the well wishes. The story goes like this… I gave birth to Mazzy Katherine Hodgson on 09-18-08. She was born at 32 weeks through an emergency c-section. It was the scariest day of our lives. I had to deliver early because I got a pregnancy related condition called Preeclampsia. It is pregnancy induced hyper tension that causes your body to become toxic and your blood pressure to rise. The only cure is delivery.

Mazzy is a healthy preemie baby and will be in NICU for a few more weeks before she can come home. She breathes on her own and is taking breast milk from a tube in her nose until she learns to suckle.
Mazzy is doing great!!! She just needs to fatten up!🙂

I have to take blood pressure medicine for a bit to get my blood pressure back to normal. I am fine. Who knew… I am never sick.

Josh is so happy to have been blessed with a baby girl. He has been helping me constantly and I could not ask for a better partner in this life. Thank god for him and my little Mazzy. Josh is my soul and Mazzy is my heart.

Thanks for all for your support and prayers. There has been many emotional ups and downs lately but I guess that is parenthood. If you want to see a few more images of Mazzy you can look here.

Love to all!
Kim, Josh and Mazzy

Fabulous Book for moms and moms to be!

A fantastically positive book I just started last night but I am already in love. The graphics make me happy too.

“The Yummy Mummy Manifesto, Anna Johnson’s unique mix of advice, do-it-yourself ideas, riffs, and personal reflections about motherhood, shows how to make the most important job you’ll ever have more delicious in every detail. Blooming with comforting and entertaining guidance on everything from style and decor to nutrition and finding your own parenting approach, this book provides something for every new mother or hot mama-to-be, covering breast-feeding basics, dressing the in-between body, emotional roadblocks, quirky mile stones, and throwing a simple but chic first birthday party. Johnson liberates the pregnant belly from the laws of good taste–yes, you can rock horizontal stripes, big polka dots, and crazy, large floral prints–and shares ways to decorate the nursery without resorting to duckling yellow wallpaper and gingham dust ruffles. Most important, through it all, she reveals how to hold onto your spirit, creativity, wit, and sensuality.”
