Hi everyone! Welcome to A&B Homemaker! This is a space to explore some home care ideas and techniques. I'm Adrianne and I want to  share some recipes and cooking adventures along with a few things that I've been thinking about. Now, to clarify, I'm not a professionally trained chef, so most of the recipes are flexible. If you feel the need to add more or less of something...go for it! Make it your own! 

Kale and Mushroom Pasta

Today we'll be making a super simple Creamy Kale & Mushroom Pasta. I typically make this with pearled couscous but today we are going to remix it with some bow tie pasta. I’ll also be sharing some tips to navigating our environments and spaces as we grow, develop, and evolve just like this recipe. 

Check out the video for a walk through of the recipe below along with my thoughts on balancing your growth and evolution while remaining in old, familiar spaces.

  • Kale (washed/chopped) - 2 cups 

  • Bow Tie Pasta  - 2 cups

  • Coconut Milk - 1 can 

  • Vegetable Broth - 3/4 cup

  • Garlic (diced) - 2 tbsp

  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat 

  2. In a separate pot - cook pasta 

  3. Add onions and cook until slightly browned

I hope you all enjoyed the recipe and the verbal journal-ing of my thoughts on how to bring an old you into new spaces.
