One of the stars of summer surely is the well-loved herb – basil.  But did you know how many ways this fragrant little plant could be incorporated into cooking, healing and pleasure?

Starting in May then continuing on until October the possibilities for allowing Basil to grace both table,  home, and garden are endless.  Here are some of our favorites:

  2. I love basil butter melting on top of minestrone soup or steak or French bread. The entire menu looks and sounds amazing. Would like the basil shortbread and tomato tart recipes. Thanks for liking my Pickled Habanero Chilies.
