If you can believe it, I didn’t eat a single piece of chocolate this Easter…not one mini egg….shocking and disgraceful I know…I did however consume quite a lot of cake and chocolate strawberry tart to make up for that fact, so I’ve been feeling the need for something a little healthier, a little more green…maybe even some (gasp!) kale…Kale blitzed up with pine nuts, olive oil and parmesan cheese into pesto that is….
Shock! Horror! A savoury recipe from me that doesn’t involve pastry! I haven’t really posted any meal recipes on Domestic Gothess yet, that doesn’t mean that I don’t eat savoury food (unfortunately one cannot live on cake alone…), or that I don’t cook (I do, a lot), it is just that unlike when I bake, where everything is weighed out and timed precisely, my cooking style tends to be somewhat more haphazard…I don’t weigh ingredients, or time how long things take to cook, or follow recipes; my method is generally to chuck things in a pan and cook them until they look done. That’s not to say that I am a bad cook – my cooking tastes good, I’m just not particularly precise about it. …
