Hello! My name is Vicky and I welcome you to Avocado Pesto. My food blog is full of recipes from various ethnic cuisines as well as food groups, with newly added nutritional information and instructional videos. I believe in healthy eating without the diet, low fat, no fat, fake sugar products. I recently have started cooking more vegan, gluten free, and paleo friendly recipes so those categories should be slowly filling up. I have no professional culinary background, just family kitchen training and my own curious kitchen efforts, so everything I post on here you can learn how to make too. Feel free to send me an email or post a comment with any questions, concerns, requests. If you have a recipe you’re not sure about and would like someone else to try it first before you take it on send it over – I’m always looking for new recipes to try!
Now a little bit about myself. After graduating from Boston University in 2010 with a business degree I moved down to Washington DC with D, the boyfriend. The blog started in December of 2010 mainly as a way to share my recipe and creations with friends and family.
Now two years later it’s time to say farewell to both DC and office life. D and I are making a wild jump into a different life path and taking off to backpack around Europe and Asia for 2 years. With our one way plane tickets to Osaka, Japan booked for September 15th 2012, the adventure begins. I will continue to blog here throughout our travels while also running a travel blog with D – we are now A Couple Travelers. Please head over there to follow our experiences abroad.
