Notes

These are perfect for pasta, thawed and food processed with nuts and more herbs for pesto, tomato sauce recipes (sugo), thawed and mixed with other herbs and used as marinade for chicken or fish. You can use any herbs like rosemary, thyme, parsley, etc. and even mix them up all up in the ice-cube tray as it makes a phenomenal marinade. These are also a wonderful base for soups and stews as well. Perfect on mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, or even veggies depending on what herbs you choose to add in the tray.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
