Something I always like to keep in my refrigerator is fresh pesto. It is so versatile and makes putting a meal together really easy. Traditional pesto is made with basil and pine nuts (which tend to be really expensive). I like to change it up with these two recipes.
January is a hard month. It's right after the holidays. We're all a little heavier and have a little less money. It's cold and sunny days seem few-and-far-between. The "winter blues" have set in. I've found myself having to make an effort on a daily basis to stay motivated and have to make a conscience effort through the cold months to keep my energy up.
