Pasta with nut pesto

February 6, 2020

If you follow me on social media you may have noticed that I have been busy creating images for an online food photo challenge in the last couple fo weeks. It has taken me outside of my comfort zone which is a good thing, it’s easy to settle into a routine so stretching out a bit and trying new things has been fun.
