WHIPPIN' One of the best recipes you can lock down is pesto. Why? Because it's versatile. Not only does it go great on a whole lot of everything, but once you know the basic parts of a pesto, you can make it out really anything. This NYT pesto recipeis quick and easy. And once you get comfortable with it, I encourage you to get inventive. No basil? Try another herb or green. I like using kale. And obviously arugula. Carrot tops are good too! Also, pine nut expensive, so give it a go with walnuts or almonds.
ART I LIKE Bryant Giles, a Chicago-based artist, is hopefully on your radar by now. The multi-hyphenate creative has worked with Nike, modeled for Pharrell and is putting out some really dope art.
