Tortellini With Roast Beef And Broccoli In Red Wine Vinaigrette

Who knew this recipe would be so delicious?

I needed something fast for dinner and this is “Cookbook” month, where I try to make at least one recipe from every cookbook I own. Insane and impossible, but then that is me for you.

Anyhow, I made this and it was AMAZING. My family agreed. Something about this combination of flavors and textures really clicks.

Definitely give it a try.

Ji Nilsson is in the kitchen today.

Feels like a Broadway show in here.

Ji Nilsson, from Sweden, sings with a sweet, clear voice. Clearly, too, she has a wandering heart.

Stupid 2nite really begs the question, “Should we give in to that romantic urge or live forever not knowing if not giving in was the right thing to do?”

It’s wicked catchy, too.
Ji Nilsson-Stupid 2nite

Here is another catchy tune. I love the piano. And the lyric “So can I eat this delicious cookie?”

We all want to have our cookie and eat it, too.

You can check out Ji Nilsson on her Myspace page and her Facebook page. I love her magenta hair in her profile pic. A girl after my own heart.
