Stop and Smell the Basil

I love to cook. It is something that I think about all of time, and I am always trying new dishes. I think the food network is the number one channel that I watch... well, that and E!. My favorite style of cooking is Italian. (I kind of secretly want to be Giada de Laurentiis.) I am sure it has lots to do with my heritage and the fact that my grandmother is one heck of an Italian cook. Eugene had to learn fast when we got married, that yes, garlic does go with EVERYTHING!

So, a few weeks ago I made a pasta recipe that I found in Good Housekeeping. It called for fresh basil. My mother in law grows all kinds of fresh herbs at her house and told me growing basil is a cinch. So... after having to go down and clip it when I need it, I am now growing it. I planted my first sprig over the weekend. It smells heavenly.

Grow little sprig, grow!
