Sfoglina

Sfoglina is a casual Italian trattoria and pasta house from Chef Fabio Trabocchi, named for the artisans and Italian cultural icons that carry on the tradition of rolling sheets of pasta by hand with a rolling pin, a technique passed through the generations. The menu features homemade pasta reflecting classics and regional specialties from throughout Italy, changing often and including daily specials.  With three locations in DC, we went to the Downtown location near Metro Center.

The menu takes patrons through a sensorial encounter, allowing them to discover their very own Seven Reasons of a magic culinary experience."  Tom Sietsema recently named Seven Reasons the best restaurant in his 2019 Fall Dining Guide.  Keith jumped on reservations right away. Closest Metro is U St.

At Home: Chocolate Almond Sugar Cookies

*Sponsored Post
This next installment of What Micky Eats...At Home features my use of a new embossed rolling pin that I received from Jessica of Embossed Co. to add some flare to my baking creations. Being a HuMom to my sweet Babka, she sent me the "Paw Prints" design, which I found to be super cute!  With Halloween coming up, I thought I'd emphasize the paw prints design by making a cat-shaped cookie, and use cocoa powder mixed into my flour for a darker color. To punch up the bitter sweetness of the cocoa powder, I combined it with almond extract to create these Chocolate Almond Sugar Cookies.
