What is pesto? That’s one of life’s great questions, isn’t it? No! Pesto is Italian for paste (I’m told) and the classic basil pesto (Genovese) is just the tip of the iceberg. Hmm. Or… the tallest on a five-man basketball team. And every team needs a point guard…? Okay, that didn’t make any sense, but what does make sense is this delicious fennel pesto. You roast fennel in the oven to bring out its mellow yet distinctive anise-y flavor, as well as to draw out its water, then you […]

The secret to the nice texture of the soup is the addition of one small potato. Top the […]

As fun as it is to try new things while cooking, there’s also a lot of value in having Ye Olde Weeknight Standards. You may be the most energetic person in the world, but if you’re working a job, you probably aren’t cooking adventurously every night. On nights when you aren’t feeling so “up to it,” you can have Thai takeout, eat a pasta roni, or order a pizza, but you’d probably feel better – about yourself or about what […]
