Spring is upon us, and I, for one, am so ready for warm weather. This past weekend, I wanted to cook a fresh and light dinner and decided to try the Avocado Pesto Pasta dish à la Chef Chloe. It hit the spot for me, and I’m definitely excited to use more recipes by this budding new vegan chef. Now see for yourself how easy it is to make this scrumptious dish! Avocado Pesto Pasta 1 pound dried linguini 1 bunch basil leaves (about 2.5 ounces) 1/2 cup pine nuts 2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 of a lemon) 3 garlic cloves 1/2 cup olive oil Salt, to taste Freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (optional)* *I’m not a huge fan of sun-dried tomatoes, so instead, I chose to use one sliced cherry tomato as a garnish. In a large pot, bring water to a boil. 75 Reminders for Tough Times - StumbleUpon.

Drain (but don’t rinse, or you’ll rinse away starches that will help thicken the sauce) and return to the empty pot. 2 Meanwhile, place a large (12- to 14-inch) sauté pan over high heat for several minutes. When hot, add the bacon and sauté until browned and crispy (lower the heat to medium-high if necessary to prevent scorching), about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and, using a slotted spoon or spatula, remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels. 3 Pour off the fat from the pan (into a metal can or heatproof cup, not down the drain or you’ll potentially clog your pipes) and return the pan to medium-high heat.

elephantine: the baked mac and cheese

Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai... whatever way you make it, I like it. But mac and cheese is high up there on the list, especially baked mac and cheese. Is there anything more comforting?

Epidemiologist David R. Jacobs, Ph.D., of the University of Minnesota calls it food synergy, and he, along with many other nutritionists, believes it might explain why Italians drizzle cold-pressed olive oil over tomatoes and why the Japanese pair raw fish with soybeans.

"The complexity of food combinations is fascinating because it's tested in a way we can't test drugs: by evolution," says Jacobs. Tween Crafts - Fun, Cool Crafts for Tweens.
