#28: Mga Anak ng Pesto! (...and its many applications)

Now that you have your jar of pesto sitting prettily on your pantry, it's time to meet her different daughters.

Pesto Toast:
You have to toast your bread first before spreading the pesto. Spreading the pesto before toasting will result in sogginess on the areas with the pesto. Go ahead and be generous! Don't scrimp on yourself on this one!

#26: My Garlic, My Hero

Thanks to for the picture!
Taking off from the sharp garlic from our pesto recipe, let me share this with you:

"Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.” Ezekiel 47:12

#25: Pestong Buhay Ito! (The Basic Pesto Recipe)

Ahhh... pesto. The refreshing pasta sauce that is friends with a lot of good things in the savory world. Not only is it elegant, it is also utterly easy to make, especially with a blender. I did my first pesto manually by chopping the basil and garlic until it was ultra fine. I almost feel redundant to say this but yes, our featured ingredient for this recipe is, what else? Basil!

Thanks to for the delicious photo
