Kale-Parsley Pesto

I love pesto. If I could, I would eat basil pesto every day: the flavour is so fresh! However, until summer gets here and we get to grow it, basil is too much for our budget (especially if had every day). So, I turn to the next best thing: parsley! This pesto is super green,Continue reading “Kale-Parsley Pesto”

Chai Coconut Mascarpone Cups

This week-end I was craving desserts, in particular yogurt parfaits where you place fruit over yogurt and add nuts, granola or other toppings.

So, I gathered a few thingsContinue reading “Chai Coconut Mascarpone Cups”

Simple Fruit Leather
