Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Cilantro Pepita Pesto from Pinch My Salt

As much as I love winter squash, I'm not a fan of sweet winter squash soups, which is why I love the sound of this Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Cilantro Pepita Pesto from Pinch My Salt. Nicole has given the soup interesting flavors with chiles, smoked paprika, cumin, garlic, and onions, and then she tops it with a pesto that's made from pepitas, garlic, cilantro, Parmesan, lime juice, and olive oil. I'd love this spicy soup for Meatless Monday meal, and I think it would make a great Thanksgiving appetizer soup as well.

Meatless Monday: Eggplant Sliders with Arugula Pesto

I've been on a one-woman crusade to get more people to like eggplant for a few years, so I love seeing out-of-the-box ways to cook this versatile vegetable. These Eggplant Sliders with Arugula Pesto from Hip Foodie Mom sound like they could become one of my favorite eggplant recipes yet. Alice broils the lightly breaded eggplant slices and then serves them with an arugula pesto that sounds amazing. If you have kids who may not go for the arugula part, you can skip the pesto or just use regular pesto made from basil.   Read more >

Tooth Fairy-Approved: Corn Crab Salad With Pepita Pesto

Matthew lost his third tooth this week and was giddy with excitement. That night, he jumped right into bed; there were no please to watch more TV, no arguments about brushing teeth, no last-minute trips to the kitchen for water. At first light, he popped out of his room waving the dollar bill he had earned from the Tooth Fairy.  I was half asleep but I do believe the clock read 5:15…. Image: Courtesy of House of Bedlam    Read more >
