About US~The Twins

Hi :) we are twin bloggers, our names are Autumn and Gabrielle (Gabby)

Being a twin is unique and so are we!  We both love music all sorts of music, depends on the mood what kind. Music is the best.

We have had and still have loads of fun adventures, being a twin seems to attract quite a lot of attention. For whatever reason? Being identical twin sisters is rather normal to us, we’ve after all spent our whole lives being twins! 🙂

Check back we’re really interesting and entertaining and you may have fun getting to know us.

What’s Your Favorite Pasta Shape? ~Written by Gabrielle Angel


I know, what a weird question for me to be pondering on. These are the random thoughts that go through my mind, does anyone else get these thoughts? Would anyone care to leave their opinion or let Autumn and I know their favorite pasta shape?
There are so many different shapes of pasta…The possibilities are endless. What got me pondering was making dinner earlier. My dinner was angel hair pasta with a tomato sauce laced with lots of mushrooms. Angel hair pasta’s real Italian name is capellini and does mean literally angel hair, isn’t that interesting? Angel hair is one of my favorite shapes of pasta, being half Italian Autumn and I were raised on pasta. 🙂 Not that this makes either of us experts, but our favorite shapes are pretty much the same. It may be a “twin thing”, but we both adore angel hair pasta.
So many choices, and no we don’t make our own pasta from scratch anymore by the way. I know, shame on us 😉 Other favorite shapes of pasta, let me just name a few. Lasagna, that’s always fun (and we both make a vegetarian version), spagetti (naturally since that is an original), farfalle (which in Italian means butterfly) the bow tie shaped pasta.
One of our Dad‘s favorite recipe he created was made with farfalle. Sorry to say, it’s a family secret so I won’t be sharing. 😉 Just a few of some of our family’s favorites are also tortellini, cavatelli, fiori (which is a flower-shaped pasta and means flowers), manicotti either stuffed with a ricotta cheese mixture or stuffed with meat. I am always intrigued with what the Italian meaning of some of the pastas are.
One of the more interesting pasta is gemelli, it’s a single S-shaped pasta. Guess what it means in Italian? Twins, that is just the coolest thing and just one of those things I just had to toss into this blog. Because of course as everyone knows (or hopefully does know by now) Autumn and I are twins! 🙂
Oh my goodness, so many pasta shapes…There really are just a multitude of them! Autumn and I both also favor the spinach flavored pasta once in awhile, it’s very good but of course not for everyone. I could never get my husband Dave to like it, believe me I did try. His favorite was my very own lasagna.
 So many years have gone by since helping our Mom make homemade ravioli, it really is fun to make. Mom always makes the homemade version. Again shame on Autumn and I, we get ours out of the freezer section. Our Italian Grandma would never have dreamed of strolling to the freezer section! The homemade version was “just the only way” for her. Being a good sport, she never scolded Autumn, me or any other sisters for racing to the freezer section. 🙂 So, as I’ve been rambling on here about different pastas, and I know many, many shapes I never mentioned.
Is this making anyone hungry at all? 😉 Anyone wating to or care to share your thoughts on favorite pasta shapes? Please do, Autumn and I would both be interested! 🙂

It’s not OK~by Autumn Sunshine


It’s not OK

anymore

trust, what is that to you?

I told you I love you

what do you want

what do you need

I am who I am

I always have been

a free spirit …

that doesn’t mean

anything else

I am not doing anything

but being me

again

this is not enough

it probably never will be

tears

never ending

when I realize it’s

not good enough

I love you ~

I do

but love should not hurt

it does …
