Pesto Saucy Meatball and Rice Recipe

A little back story.....

For 5 years I was the author and owner of A Peek Into My Paradise blog; also known as APIMP. It was my little space in blog-land where I shared my passions in life with my readers. I loved having an audience and web-friends to share my love of crafts, recipes, travel and anything else that peeked my interest! 

In late 2015, with working a traditional full-time job, juggling health issues and running a thriving blog, I decided something had to give. And that something was APIMP so I said goodbye to my 5 year old friend and closed down APIMP. In 2016, I resigned from my traditional full-time job. Hubby and I decided I would go after my dream of owning my own business. Paradise Paint Parties & Gifts was born. 

I don't miss the time requirement APIMP took but I do miss sharing recipes, craft ideas, our adventures and all the other passions that make me - me! So, I've decided to start blogging again. Hello - Paradise Paint Parties & Gifts Blog. I don't know what road this new blog will take but I welcome you to join me and take a peek into some of the aspects that bring join to my life! 

And so it begins.....

It can be challenging cooking for just Dave and I. I love vegetables and he loves anything made with peanut butter and - PESTO! So, I figured tonights dinner, Pesto Saucy Meatballs and Rice would be a hit with him - and it was! And with me too!

I love to cook but when it's HOT out the last thing I want to do is stand over a stove or turn on the oven. We live in the Central Valley of California and it has been a really hot summer! During the summer my crockpot is my best friend in the kitchen! Pesto Saucy Meatballs and Rice is summer comfort food! I hope your family enjoys it as much as we did!

My recipes will be in this easy to print, PIN and share format. I hope you will PIN and share this post with your friends. Sharing is caring right? lol

Hubby and I are binge TV watchers. And by that I mean we watch all the seasons of one or two shows on Netflix or Hulu (we don't have traditional cable - dumped that bill years ago!) then move onto the next. We find we get more involved in the storylines and characters. Right now we are watching Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. I'm off to watch a few episodes with him. You have a terrific day!
