Broccoli & Spinach Pesto {Vegan option}

by Chrissy


Broccoli Spinach Pesto_LYK2

This is kind of pesto. But there isn’t any basil in it. Or nuts. And not nearly enough olive oil, for a normal pesto.

But it’s just as tasty, loads healthier, and goes great on pasta and a variety of other things.

You know the large stalk of broccoli that you would normally chuck in the trash after harvesting the florets? Yea, well, don’t do that anymore. You’ll be wasting a perfectly good ingredient!

by Lauren


Let’s talk about pizza. Specifically, fruit on pizza. It truly is the best thing since sliced bread.

Our friend Gio literally cringed at the thought of this beauty.

Apparently it’s a sin to complicate pizza so much in Italy. Apparently, we don’t really care.

It was totally worth sinning against the classical pizzas of Italy to indulge in this. Plus, adding a little straight-from the-gardenplanter fresh rosemary sort of makes up for it.


The sweet, sugary fruits with …

We did some kitten sitting this weekend.

We think this “cat” might be Spiderman’s newest guise.

Or perhaps he’s just a untrained tiger trapped in a kittens body.

Needless to say, things got mildly out of hand.

He tried to eat my pizza and that’s where I drew the line.

Once it had been saved from its imminent death by kitten, we were able to eat some seriously gourmet pizza.

Shaving asparagus is a bit of a tedious task but … Read more...
