Time flies when your having fun.

It also flies when you have a hectic week.

My last week ran so fast, I couldn’t catch up until the middle of this week.

Weekend Herb Blogging waits on no one!

It is sort of like catching the bus, if you miss one ride you just wait on the next.
Kalyn is hosting this week so check out Kalyn’s Kitchen for the ride.
Get your ticket for some great recipes and information.

My own contribution this week reflects my hectic cook schedule and style in general. Simple and local.

Slap my hand if you catch me buying and shipping that black truffle!

Of course, I won’t turn it down if you wish to donate.

    Looks delicious to me. I just love pesto. It seems I never make enough of it when the basil is here, and iI miss it when it’s gone.

    Congratulations on the twins. BTW, I never imagined you were old enough to be a Grandma!

    Although it’s simple, it’s also one of the most enjoyable meal I’d love to have daily! Fecttuccine seems going really well with oil-base and lemon-ey sauce. Yours looks perfect!

    We just had pesto on pasta last night. This year’s crop was superbly abundant, and I need to get the creative juices flowing to use it up. Broiled tomatoes are so yummy, I should keep that in mind for another time.

    This is a wonderful meal. I enjoy making pasta like that and the broiled tomatoes make it even more special. Yum!

What Spice Are You

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that
there are some people
who can't stand you.
The good news is that
most people love you more
than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh,
and very controversial.
And you wouldn't have it
any other way.

What Spice Are You?
