Carbonara

" I have always loved pasta but this is one of my favorite. My former boyfriend made one for me years ago and gave me a copy of his recipe, I tried it but I failed, his was a little complicated so I decided to modify it myself. With the help of my taste bud, I succeded in making my own version....and so far people loved it and was asking for my secret recipe. There may really be SECRET recipe, but to me the secret really lies in you. Just put your love and dedication to what your doing. THAT,  gives command to your hands that ends up with good result. You have to put your heart into it. That's what I do. People love my food because I put not just my touch but also my heart when I do it".
