Kale Pesto & Hamilton Beach Stack and Snap Review


Confession: until I made this pesto, I had never made it before. I don't know why... it's incredibly easy and affordable!! Plus, with my new Hamilton Beach 10 Cup Stack n Snap food processor, the whole process was a breeze!

As the Holidays whizzed by this year, I found myself surrounded by cakes, cookies, and all kinds of goodies! My mouth said "oh heck yea!" but my waistline said "whooooaaaa!!!". I decided I needed something dark green and leafy in my life. I bought a giant bag of kale and started putting it in everything!



I Pinterest-searched recipes and that's when I found this gem. It was quick, easy, totally affordable, and tasty! Plus, with my new handy dandy Stack n Snap food processor it was done in no time!

I loved the easy clean-up and break down most about this baby. Other food processors are bulky with lots of  STUFF attached. This one is super simple and takes up almost no space. WIN!
