Roasted Sweet Potato Risotto with Grana Padano 

I swear I’m still alive! I apologize for being M.I.A. recently. March was a crazy month of illnesses, Easter, and my little girl’s birthday. I had to give priority to my #1 job, being a mom. Now that things have kind of settled, I can get back to showing you guys some great food!

I am so excited to share this one with you all. It is pretty amazing! I love sweet potato anything. I also love risotto of all kinds…so why not combine the two?

Fennel Almond Pesto with Whole Wheat Spaghetti

I love experimenting with different greens for making pesto sauce. I came up with this dish around Christmas time when I had some fennel for other dishes I was making on Christmas day. After the fennel bulbs were chopped up and gone, I still had a bunch of the leafy green part (called fronds). It seemed like a sin to throw them away and thought that I must be able to come up with a way to use them. I discovered that fronds are not only edible, but just as nutritious and also have a ton of flavor! I thought they would make a great green for pesto sauce, and I decided to add almonds for a crunchy texture. The end result was ah-mazing!

Proof that kids (or non-beet-loving adults) will love these pancakes….
