Wasabi Guacamole

Rating: 4.5 stars 24

Basil Pesto Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 89
At a recent party our friends went wild over this. A simple pesto is spread on Italian bread and layered with roma tomatoes and cheese. It takes a little time, but it is worth it. I freeze the basil in ice cube trays, then put the cubes in freezer bags. You can easily take out and thaw what you need. Enjoy!
