  • The Mom Chef

    You just named two of my favorite chefs in the world and I love them both for the very reasons you made this blog. I can sit and listen to Mario explain cooking and life all day and I can sit and watch Morimoto use his knives for the same amount of time. Your pesto is gorgeous and your blog made me smile.

    Thanks to all the pesto lovers for loving on the pictures- Jen (see the "about" section) is quite a wizard with the camera.

    Tanatha- I know! Jacob from Jacob's Kitchen made pesto too- I love his blog- and yours!

    Amanda @Cilantropist- I do LOVE that mini prep tool- it is the perfect size.

    MomChef- those guys are both amazing and so different! :-)

    I think Batali is growing on me. I didn't like him much before, but I'm really starting to love his recipes.

    That pesto looks incredible. I've been meaning to make some of my own, recently, guess this is a sign! =)
