Doing it yourself is super empowering! Why depend on other forces, when you can own your own culinary destiny and treat yourself and your crew to awesome food, wine, and most importantly good times. To bring up the Do It Yourself mojo we teamed up with Colu Henry. She’s a badass in the kitchen and author of Back Pocket Pasta: Inspired Dinners to Cook on the Fly. She graciously lent us a few recipes that we know will elevate your next casual friends’ dinner or for when you need a late night dish to pull out of thin air when you get home from a night on the town.
