It’s National Pistachio Day and I am not near my stove or oven. There is a fully-equipped kitchen where I am, but the pantry is bare. Nor have I found pistachios in the little bodega down the road. I’m on a mission, though. They have some chayotes and want to roast them with pistachios.

In the meantime, I’ve reposted some of my pistachio favorites:

arugula pistachio pesto

Be creative with your greens; use kale or Swiss chard.

Use your favorite buttercream frosting.


Pear and Pistachio Trifle with Mascarpone Whipped Cream

Yum. Make one big bowl and provide many spoons.

If you don’t have fig jam, simply omit from recipe.
