  1. You are spot on about this. Pasta is my favorite food group.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  2. A world without basil would be a cold dark place. Ok maybe not but it would certainly be less tasty!!

  3. One of my favorite spices!

    Happy Tuesday. ☺

  4. ...er herbs. Oops. ;)

  5. Mmmm! Pesto on pasta. Tomato/pesto quiche. Now I'm hungry.

  6. I can't live without basil! I buy it year round! Pesto... yum! Now I think I have to make some! :)

  7. Pesto is something I keep saying I'm going to make, but haven't yet. I love it, so...once of these days.

    I absolutely love the smell of basil! It probably takes the cake as my favorite herb. ;)

  12. Big fan of basil. We bought a plant once to grow our own. After two months, it just died...

  13. I love basil! Thanks for the recipe. I love your recipes!!!

  14. Oh, I love my good measure of basil in my pasta. This is a keeper. :) Thanks. Hope to return for more.

  15. One of my favourite herbs - but the best is Thai Holy Basil. Really fantastic flavour.

  16. Thanks to all who leave such nice comments- unfortunately I am not able to reciprocate and visit all your blogs as some folks have them set up for privacy reasons. So just know that I appreciate all who visit and comment.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
