Gluten-Free Vegetarian 4 Course Holiday Dinner

On New Year’s Eve instead of going out to a crowded party or bar, we decided to stay in, cook ourselves a wonderful dinner, play games, drink wine, and enjoy each others’ company. And honestly, I think I prefer my NYE that way! The dinner we made was four courses, gluten-free, vegetarian, EASY, and delicious.

Greenoa Quinoa

My favorite vegetables have always been the green ones. Broccoli, peas, edamame, spinach, peppers, zucchini…I could go on. And yet another favorite green food is pesto. Recently I made Spinach Pesto to make sure I used up all the spinach in my fridge before it went bad (and it was amazing). With that spinach pesto […]

Spinach Pesto

I’ve determined that the bags that they sell fresh spinach in cannot possibly be consumed by one person before it goes bad, unless that one person is Popeye. Every time I buy spinach for a recipe, I end up with a ton extra, and it ends up getting thrown away, which I really feel intensely […]

Gluten-Free Pesto Crostini

Creamy Gnocchi al Pesto with Spinach

Three of my favorite foods: gnocchi, pesto, and spinach COMBINED. Although, it’s not really saying much, since most foods are my favorite foods (self-proclaimed food addict) except for meat (obviously) and mushrooms. Anyway, I love gnocchi but had never cooked it at home so I figured I’d give it a whirl instead of pasta. I […]

The Triple P: Pea Pesto Pasta! (and protein!)

I have a serious pesto obsession. I could bathe in pesto. You could make pesto with any ingredient in existence (cookie pesto?) and I’d probably eat it. I found this recipe for pea pesto a couple months ago, bookmarked it, and¬†finally got around to making it, and it turned out wonderful! I mixed up the […]

Spaghetti with Basil Pesto & Sauteed Spinach

I could seriously bathe in basil pesto. It is so good, I can barely stop myself from eating a family-sized portion, plus garlic bread. But here’s the problem: basil pesto is mediocre at best unless it’s homemade. I tried pesto for the first time a couple years ago at a restaurant, and subsequently bought a […]
