Tip of the Day

Would you like to try your hand at making your own noodles? Well, here's a few tips to keep in mind:

*Kneading is crucial.  Make sure the dough is smooth and elastic.

*A dough that is moister will be easier to work with; a drier dough will be more crumbly and can be more frustrating.  Be careful though. . . if it is too wet it will stick to the rollers in a pasta machine.

*Make sure once the dough has been kneaded, it is allowed to rest if that is what the recipe calls for. This usually takes anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.  Don't skip this part!

*You will have better noodles if you just use egg yolks.  Whole eggs will make your dough a little bit tougher.
