Happy Valentine's Day to all the lovey-dovey WKA readers out there all around the globe! ;-) *Note I have no clue how to do those love heart symbols which every, single, other, person on the entire planet knows how to type other than me... *_* (Hints on a postcard please? ~ tks!)

I'll be honest, I rarely celebrate this holiday (it's just never really appealed to me) but I know a lot do so here are a few pasta recipes just in case you're thinking to wine and dine your loved one at home ~ or just looking for something nice to muster up over the coming weekend...

Today also sees the on-sale date of my March feature in Delicious mag Aus ~ and as ever it's on sale at Zinio (link here). Am super chuffed to get a second cover in a row. (!) :-) I particularly loved this one as it's all things... Italian ~ aka my favourite food on the planet! All recipes are available in this month's Delicious mag but I'm uploading one here to WKA, which I exceptionally loved cooking for the shoot.

I am off to Melbourne tomorrow for 5 nights to mainly chill out and celebrate my wedding anniversary (ahhh!) and also experience some AMAZING food ~ note I am dining at the iconic Vue du Monde on Tuesday (= excitement overload!) and I am very much looking forward to it as well as some other great bookings I've made at places I have wanted to try out for yonks, but have never been organised enough in time to book and get a table...

I hope you all have a very 'rosemantic' day, as we say in Dublin's fair city....
