Recipe: Spinach Herb Pistachio Pesto

Summer is winding down. Already I’m feeling blue! I’m a summer girl, so it’s hard for me to say farewell to the warm weather – SUNSHINE (vitamin D!) – abundant summer fruits and vegetables – and herbs. One of my cold-weather coping mechanisms is to batch and freeze pesto at the end of summer… for… Continue Reading

Pumpkincredible Hummus

Here it is, my last Pumpkinfest post.  I’ve posted quite a few sweet pumpkin recipes, so thought I’d deliver a savory recipe to give the Pumpkin Chickpea Cauliflower Curry some company. What’s a month without hummus?  Really, can I go one month without posting – or at least talking about – hummus?  I have made… Continue Reading
