It’s been beautiful in Seattle the past week or so. I know there’s been a heat wave in the rest of the US but we haven’t had temperatures over 80 degrees here. It’s a bit warm way too hot for Nick, but I love it.
80+ degree weather (and no central AC!) means I am spending less time in the kitchen and more time outside. (In Seattle, we tend to overdose on sun when it’s —so rarely— available!)
I had a lot on my plate in September. It went by in the blink of an eye. Nick and I were out of town on vacation twice during the month (posts on both trips coming soon!), I took on extra freelance work for my company and I got sick, twice. -_-
I love buying fresh bunches of carrots from the farmers market, but sometimes it’s tough figuring out what to do with all those greens. Some vendors will offer to remove them for you before you take your bunch of carrots home (I really can’t believe this is a thing), but don’t let them! This carrot green pesto makes an absolutely wonderful substitute for its more traditional cousin, basil pesto.
Hi guys. So, if you’re a fan of free things, then you and I have something in common. It’s both easy and cost-effective to make your own vegetable broth at home. Not just cost-effective. This homemade vegetable broth is virtually free. AKA you are not buying any special ingredients for it. I mean you can if you want to, but you absolutely don’t have to. It will still come out amazing every time.
