Parsley and Cashew Pesto

I’ve been eyeing the pesto at my local Farmer’s Market for awhile now, but can never buy it. The reason? Too expensive. I’m a cheapskate and I REFUSE to pay $5 or more for some pesto that I can easily make at home. For a long time I’ve been passively eyeing ingredients saying “Oh, they…

Smoked Salmon Quesadillas with Honey Sour Cream Dip

Hi! Hope you’re having a great week. Over the days, weeks, months, years…..you get the point, I’ve lamented on having to cook dinner after coming home after a long day at work. It was always, “Should I cook something quick and easy?” or cook what I really
