Feels like I have been gone forever. It has been a year. And so much has happened in this year that I was away. We moved to a new place and then this pandemic hit, which has turned everyone's lives upside down. Slowly trying to come back to blogging as we settle into our new place in Charlottesville, Virginia. I was glad to have our vegetable patch up and running in the last month and has been prompting me to post some recipes. Our herbs are growing like crazy and in this short time we've had a bumper produce of basil. And I knew that it had to used soon. The last time I made pesto, the kids didn't like the raw garlic taste, so this time I decided to give it a twist and roast the garlic before making the pesto. Roasting it gives a mild smoky flavor which we loved.
