Why is pesto so good? Because it’s greens that your body needs, plus nuts, and a ton of oil and cheese. Basically, a ton of (mostly healthy) fats and incredible flavors bombarding your taste buds. It’s easy on the tummy, too, which is a huge plus. I make batches of pesto every time I get fresh greens from my mom’s garden, so stay tuned for a recipe!
Anyway, I usually make crazy food creations around winter holidays, because (1) it’s cold so I’m always hibernating inside, and (2) the season is full of gatherings. A perfect time to be over the top with some insane sculpture out of fruit or bread (don’t worry, when the time comes, you’ll see them!).
I wanted to share my pesto pull-apart bread that I made a while back for a friend’s dinner. I couldn’t tell you what inspired this, except that I had nothing to do that day other than make pesto and bread. It was simple yet mouth-watering. My mouth is actually watering thinking back on this.
