Here's Bita wearing my hat that my mom gifted me last year. I had her pose for the blog. The bowl is empty because this is taken days after the pasta was made but I wanted to share a picture of her in the kitchen.. :) 

This photo was taken the night we made the pasta. Check out the Periscope here.
