Spinach and cashew nut pesto

There is never a week that I do not have a big jar of homemade pesto in my fridge. It may vary from traditional basil pesto, tomato pesto to spinach pesto. I usually use what I have to hand. If I have lots of fresh spinach left in the fridge, I will use that. If…

Superhero muffins
