    I love making homemade pastas – and double love that you’re spreading the word on how truly simple some of the basics are.

    The Stroganoff sounds so flippin’ yummy. This one is marked for this weekend’s shopping list for sure. Just like your insane Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, I’m sure it’s amazing.

    PS. Naked babies!!! Eeeee!

    Keep the kid pics coming!!! Mine no longer trash magazines (just cars… kidding!!)

    Excellent stroganoff recipe – no excuse not to do the scratch version since it’s so simple and so much better!!

      Oh no! Hope your cars are okay! From scratch is always better in my opinion…:)

    The stroganoff looks so delicious. It’s so wonderful that you make your own pasta.

    The baby pic is so cute!

      Thank you much Prerna!. And yes, two is more than double the work of one, but so worth it!

    Ohhhh, mine are a few months ahead of yours (the little one is walking now) and they are into EVERYTHING! Such cuteness!

    This looks really, really good. I think I even have everything (‘cept the wine but I never have that) so I will be making it soon, maybe tomorrow. Though I might skip the homemade pasta. While I do make my own pretty often, we are remodeling the kitchen and it’s a MESS. Gotta keep things simple lately!

    LOVE your green eggs…I have some of them, too :)

      Sounds like we have lots in common Zoe! Don’t worry, I’m not judgin’ you for not making your pasta. We all have reasons sometimes…

    This looks delicious. I will leave out the pickles, sorry. Haven’t made this in ages, and I do love it.

    Love the kiddies. Lock them in closets when they are 13 and don’t let them out until they are 30!!! LOL

      I won’t be mad that you leave out the pickles…my hubby was nervous about it too. But I converted him!

      As for the kids, i think I may agree with you soon…;)

    I agree with you. Nothing can be cuter :-) and need I start speaking about the softest, smoothest buns?

    Pasta making does not seem so exotic anymore. Looks wonderful.

    They may destroy magazines, but they sure are helpful rolling out the dough for the pasta! Honestly, everything about that dish looks great and I really need to try making my own pasta!

    This is taking stroganoff to a whole new level when the noodles are homemade, wine is added and yet there are no foochbags in site.

    • Elizabeth
      January 12, 2011

      Awww, thanks Bellini! Wine does add a new dimension that I love, which is why I put it in my tomato sauces too.

    There are few things more beautiful than homemade/handcut pasta. Well, maybe a smiling naked baby. :-)

    OMG! They are adorable. Reminds me of my red headed twins (boy/girl)
    They are now 25 yrs old. Don’t ask how I got thru it, it is a blur, LOL.
    Ground beef for Stroganoff??? I love your recipe which is similar to what I make but your’s sounds MUCH better, going to try it!

    • Elizabeth
      January 12, 2011

      Wow Elizabeth, 25 years with twins and you MADE it! Congratulations. As for the ground beef, I know right?

    Wow, making your own pasta! Wow, that is the way to up it a notch or two! I would put it with the best egg noodles I could buy. I have the time to make pasta, just not the patience.

    I never use the canned soups either. I made a Hash Brown Casserole last week where it asked for the soup and instead I made a homemade white sauce and made it with chicken broth. Was excellent and didn’t take much extra time than the original version.

    This looks amazing. I want a big bowl!

    • Elizabeth
      January 12, 2011

      Mmm, hash brown casserole..like schwartzies?? A friend of mine ALWAYS makes that. It’s Horrifying! It’s frozen shredded hash browns, cream of mushroom soup and tons of cheese!! I bet it would be amazing homemade though…

    Now THIS is stroganoff done up right. I always try to make stroganoff with leftover prime rib from Christmas dinner. I always use sour cream — but the add-ins vary with my mood (though I’d NEVER think to use ground beef). Nonetheless, it always turns out quite delicious. But, the flavors here are beckoning me. Wine, paprika… Especially that homemade pasta. NOM.

    I have a beef strog. recipe I’ve been making for several years, but I’m not in love with it. Yours sounds much better. And with homemade pasta. Mmmmm. I am beyond impressed that you find the time to do this! Should I just start calling you Wonder Woman?

      Aw, thanks Amy! Really, I keep saying it, but it is not that hard to make this. You will need someone to observe the children while you get your hands messy in the dough, but after that, you’re golden!

    A giant high-five to you for making your own pasta. My pasta maker sort of disappeared into the back of the cubbard lately. Time to pull it out, perhaps? And thank you for shunning the ground beef and canned soup versions. Being Russian myself, the thought makes me shudder, but I also can’t stand when the meat is gristly. Yours looks like absolute perfection. And “fouchebag”, lol. I think I fall into that category. But I’ll wear it proudly :).

    Great post, great pictures and great food. Have I said how much I love you yet?

    Yes, we are foochbags.. I know, I never thought I would be. This used to be my signature dish until I went to make it for Elizabeth one night and she was not pleased with my canned soup approach. You can be a foochbag too! Its fun!

    Thank you! I found this site looking for a recipe that didn’t have cream of mushroom freakin soup in it. I wanna slap whoever started that. It tastes nothing like Stroganoff it just looks like Stroganoff and tastes like cream of mushroom soup with pasta.

    I have made many different recipies for stroganoff, this is the most straight forward and tasty. I also always put pickels and use red wine, I had to add dijon for zing but you have made this my permanant recipe. Great work on this site, keep it up.

    I’m looking forward to make this at some point after my fast.
    Do you happen to know how to make these egg noodles with whole wheat flour? Would I just substitute the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour?
    Don’t worry, I’ve always been called a food snob also. I’ll take that name over cooking with canned soups.

    • Elizabeth
      January 3, 2013

      Ha! Awesome. You can definitely use whole wheat flour, though if you want a nice soft texture, it is best to use half and half white and whole wheat. Good luck!
