Originally I wanted to submit another pesto to Peggys Event Rapsölution. But how it happens, my idea didn’t work on the foreevening of the event, of course. Moreover my Nikon striked. Doesn’t go well these days. But I always have some posts waiting in line and I noticed that I still have the perfect recipe. Lucky me! So I’m now submitting this awesome pesto made of carrot tops and pumpkins […]

I love the messengers of spring time: wild garlic, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries!

But we have a lot of swiss chard, lettuce and different kind of beans at the moment. Last year I […]

But this pesto makes a dish of the cauliflower, which is not just edible, but quite delicious. What a revelation! Furthermore, this dish is on the table in no time, doesn’t need a ton of […]

A classic in our fast after work kitchen: the pea pesto. If you like peas, you will love this pesto! Another great recipe from Deb from Smitten Kitchen. Who by the way is releasing her first cookbook in October! The ingredients for this pesto are always at home. Frozen peas, parmesan, olive oil, pine nuts. If you are considering pine nuts as a curiosity in your pantry, just use almonds […]
