Pesto is my most favorite thing to make in the summer. Fresh basil makes all the difference! I acknowledge that each person has his or her own variation of pesto. My recipe is no exception. I, Like most people, was taught by my mother. She has taught me most things that I know about cooking. I document my cooking to share good quality recipes for everyone to enjoy! Thank you!
