Basil Pesto

Everyone most everyone either LOVES pesto and/or makes it homemade.  Right?  Well we make pesto all the time in our house and use if for so many foods, here is our “basic” recipe. Ingredients Basil {fresh} Garlic {fresh} you can purchase garlic already skinned and ready for use and in EVOO from places like Whole Foods in a container Parm Cheese {fresh grated is best, but if you must use pre-grated then do so} EVOO Sea Salt Add everything in the blender and pulse. I told you Basic.  This is the easiest Pesto recipe ever and anyone can do this.  Once you make it, add it to an amazing dish and make sure to FREEZE what you don’t use.  This stuff is a life saver when in a hurry to pull a dinner together.  I know when the kids have pasta and am looking for an idea, having the pesto…  Read More…

You know, most of us would think as the kids get older things get easier…LOL, right!  I have found myself playing “referee“, board game queen, activities director, day-trip planner, and waitress every summer.

I loved seeing that Faith had read through some of my magazines over the weekend and from what I…  Read More…
