Miscellaneous photos and short recipes




I made my lovely basil into a lovely and delicious pesto-

recipes for pesto are quite easy, to about 2 cups of basil leaves- add

as many cloves of garlic as you desire- I usually add two- process this

in some sort of chopping device (blender, processor, etc.)  Add walnuts

or pine nuts ( about 1/3 cup pinenuts, 1/2-3/4 cup of walnuts) and chop

it up small, adding a good olive oil- at least 1/3-1/2  cup while device is

running.  Add 3/4 to 1 cup of good shredded Parmesan Reggianno cheese

and then taste adding S + P  according to your preference.

I also make a good pesto using mint leaves and sesame seeds- but that is

another post.


Foccacia bread with pesto.  Yum!


Apple Cardamom Upside Down Cake- you can find the recipe here.


And a little Fall foliage around my house- plus a happy ceramic scarecrow my mother made me

a long time ago.

Please leave a message/comment if you have the time- Iā€™m having some problems with the

comment section and we are trying to work out the bugs- Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Hi Heidi.

    Leaving a comment to test… hopefully this will go in just fine. šŸ™‚

    Looks like the rebuild is fully complete. Let me know if you need more help!

  2. Hello! I am at the launderette washing an oversized bed thing and reading your blog. I would love to have a big hunk of your foccaccio right now, or a slice of apple and cardamom cake, or both – I need sustenance and your blog is a good place to come for that. Lets see if this works, tippy tapping in Wash n Go on the ipad xx hugs Jo
