My husband is notoriously anti-freezer foods. He is also convinced that he will be willing and able to cook our meals in the early days of baby radish. I truly admire the sentiment and hope that it is true because he is a fantastic cook. But, just to play it safe and to prepare for days where we are just too tired or overwhelmed, I am meal prepping some freezer-friendly dinners.

I am currently rounding out my last week of Culinary School at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. It has been an amazing few months, chock full of veg-centric culinary immersion. Being creative with your veggies is a priority at the school, and something I have always been passionate about. Another strong passion of mine is for pesto, which is typically a robust green sauce made from fresh herbs. In my mission to add more veggies into your life, I bring you broccoli pesto, the perfect way to add more green into your diet - or sneak it in for someone who may not be such a die hard veghead.Read More
Some things are just better on toast. Avocado mash, chocolate hazelnut spread, ricotta and honey to name a few, but this pea and mint pesto just may take the cake. Fresh or thawed peas, mint, and lemon shine in this perfect-for-spring pesto. For all of you non-bread people out there, this pesto works wonders with crudités, quinoa, whole grain pasta, dolloped over salads or served on top roasted vegetables.Read More
