Presto Pesto: Easy pesto recipe from the garden

As the summer starts to wind down, I’m finding myself with a lot of herbs just waiting to be frozen or used in some imaginative way. The parsley I planted is almost as over run as the mint. The basil made a huge come back after “the bug” incident. Yeah natural pesticides. So I decided to try a new(ish) take on pesto. Continue reading

Recipe: Sauteed Bok Choy with Garlic and Scallions

FOOOOOOODDDDD! I love to eat almost as much as  I love to cook. I giggle when I think about how I grew up vs how I am now.

But still, give me a good snow fall and nice blanket and I happy. Until to cold and flu season sets in. Then I’m pretty much running around my house with a Clorox wipe in one hand and a tissue on the other. (The tissue normally isn’t for me) So right before the germs creep into every crevice of my children’s being and all over my house, I like to make a huge pot of my “Kick the Cold Chicken Soup”. It’s like normal chicken soup, but better! How so? I add a few out of the norm ingredients. Continue reading
