To Make / Pesto Grilled Cheese


     Hi there! With spring comes fresh flavors, and one of my favorites for the warmer months is pesto! I'm not sure what it is about the sauce that I associate with warmer weather, maybe how well it pairs with crisp white wine? Regardless, I can't get enough of it, and love finding ways to use it other than just as a pasta sauce. Today, we have it in the form of a grilled cheese! I paired it with yummy scallions from the farmers market, and melted provolone (which literally goes well with anything you pair it with). Get the recipe below!


- Ezekiel bread (or any that you like!)

- scallions

- provolone

- 1 tbs. of pesto


1. First, chop your scallions, discarding the fronds and most of the white part.

2. Spread your pesto on your bread, then top with scallions and cheese.

3. Grill til golden, and enjoy!

To Make Pumpkin Seed Pesto


     Hi there! I've got a great pesto recipe for you today! I was looking at sides for the impending Turkey Day, and saw roasted roasted veggies drizzled with a pumpkin seed pesto. It looked too good to not try! I'm already a big fan of pesto (much to my mom's dismay, sorry mom!), so this wasn't to big of a stretch for me. Get the recipe below!


- 1 cup of packed basil leaves

- 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds or pepitas

- 2 cloves of garlic

- 1/2 cup of olive oil

- 1/2 cup of parmesan


1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Store in a jar in the fridge and enjoy!
