G-Oub's Carbonaha My mom loved family meals. If we gathered with just three of us or a whole party, the table was made up to be beautiful. There were always flowers on the table, candles, and matching placemats with coordinating dishes. She believed in community, family, and welcoming everyone to fill their tummies and hearts. Lisa and I have been like family my whole life. My mom was a very close friend and mentor to Lisa, which Lisa has been for me (full circle). When Lisa came for dinner, it's like the carbonara pot was never full enough. The conversation was so fun and the love so strong that we would sit and eat for so long. My mom, GW as she was known to everyone around her, or G-Dubs for those close to her, taught us all so much about community.. just through the meals and atmosphere she created for everyone to share and gather together. Her spirit lives on as we still come together, set a beautiful table, and cook carbonara together and talk about the past, present and future. And, that sense of gathering spills over into Be Boutique. We love a good party, charity event, or fundraiser! Our customers and friends make us who we are, and we are so grateful for our community! Thank You G-Dubs for all the lessons you showed us, but especially for the reminder that there is always a reason to celebrate! Thank You G!!! Prep Time: Depends how much Procecco you are drinking. Cook Time: 30 minutes INGREDIENTS 1 lb spaghetti 1 egg 6 slices bacon or pancetta (diced) 1-11/2 cups parmesan Salt and pepper INSTRUCTIONS Boil salted water. While the water is boiling cook diced bacon. Cook bacon on a lower heat so that it gets crispy without burning. Add spaghetti to water. When bacon is done put aside (in pan still). Drain the pasta. Add the bacon with half the grease. Crack the egg and add directly to the pot stirring vigorously. Add the parmesan, salt and pepper, and stir You can keep a cup of the pasta water and add gradually at the end if you would like a creamier texture. Serve warm. Straight out of the pot was GW's way so that it stayed warm.
Grandma's Hot Dish There is nothing special about this recipe as everyone makes it, but it's about the memories My mom used to make it for my daughters all the time. My Mom passed away in 2015 and we continue to make it just like she would have. She would never measure, and the ketchup was always a joke because she said it was the "secret ingredient!"

Cinnamon Chocolate Fudge Cake My Mom has made this cake for as long as I remember! She got the recipe from our neighbor (who is still a very close family friend) when I was about 2 years old.

We always had holidays at our house with at least 25-35 people! I love big family gatherings. Friends and family all know her for this cake and requested it often!

Chicken Paphikash This is one of our family favorites. It was originally made by grandmother, Mimi, who was Hungarian and who learned it from her mom. My great grandmother came to the United States from Hungry at age 19. This was a usual request by all of us kids that my mom would make for us and now I make it for my daughter.

Mom's Ravioli My mom's relatives, the Rocca's, brought this recipe over from Italy, and served in my uncle's restaurant in New York. It's so good you will never eat anything like these raviolis anywhere. Have some good red wine with them and they'll make you oh so happy! Prep Time: 48 hours Cook Time: 4-6 minutes INGREDIENTS Filling: 3-16oz whole milk ricotta drained (pour in colander with wax paper on top) 1-16oz pkg frozen chopped spinach 2-3/4 cups grated parmesan 1-2 eggs 1 pinch nutmeg Pasta: 2 cups and 2 teapoons of unbleached flour 2 eggs dash of salt warm water INSTRUCTIONS Filling: Drain ricotta in sieve with a heavy weight on top for an hour. In large bowl place ricotta, spinach (squeezed of all water), eggs, parmesan and nutmeg. Mix all very well. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (When ready to fill raviolis take only a small amount out of fridge at a time). Pasta: On a large wooden board dump flour and make a well in the middle - into which you drop eggs one at a time. Make sure they stay in the flour. Mix and knead all well with hands until it becomes pretty pliable. You may add some hot water if it seems too dry to work or some flour if it appears to be too loose. Knead/work this into a loaf shape. Cover with a clean dish towel. Slice off a small piece and flatten it with your palms. Put it through the pasta machine that has rollers on the next to the last thinnest setting. Fill each strip with about 1 teaspoon of filling and place another flattened strip on top separating each ravioli. With a sharp knife cut them to separate then take a fork and seal all sides. Place on a clean sheet or paper bags to dry over night. Turn them once so they dry on both sides. They will cook fairly quickly in a pot of boiling salted water about 4-6 minutes. Serve with melted butter and parmesan Manga!
