One of the best investments I've made to enhance my cooking arsenal is a Vitamix high-speed blender.  Despite the competitor's claims, you simply cannot get the same results when blending with a Ninja or KitchenAid vs. the Vitamix.  Don't get me wrong, I understand that not everyone out there is able to splurge on the power of a Vitamix.  I thought that was the case for me until I discovered that Vitamix actually sells certified reconditioned blenders!  Just like buying a car certified preowned, these refurbished blenders are guaranteed to function just like their brand n...

I may have mentioned this before but I have a childhood girlfriend Sivan, who is a real-deal professional blogger.  The woman is a genius and creates the most lovely luxurious, yet real content on the internet!  I had the pleasure of growing up on Maui with Sivan during our middle school days.  About 8 years ago we reconnected via social media.  Sivan has always been a dear friend and is so encouraging to me when it comes my kitchen creations and sharing my recipes online.

I walked out of yoga tonight and glanced at my phone to find an outpouring of new love on my Insta over this Summer Squash and Basil Pasta with Lemon Zest!  My dear childhood friend (and blogger-extraordinaire), Sivan Ayla made this pasta dish tonight per my recommendation and shared the results on her IG stories.  Shortly thereafter I received a multitude of lovely messages from Sivan's community requesting the recipe.  So if you're here from Sivan's page seeking squash pasta, welcome to Beccalani, you're in the right spot!  I made this recipe last night for my husband when we wanted someth...
