In a Word: Basil

I’m kind of on a slight basil kick right now. Ok, maybe not so slight. Probably because It’s the only thing I’ve grow that seems to flourish.

I bought a large plant of it at Trader Joes. Not only does basil have so many uses, the smell of it is just devine. It might just be my favorite herb. I would highly suggest making strawberry basil lemonade or adding it as a topping to your next homemade pizza. Trust me on this one folks, you won’t regret it.

What are some things you use basil for? I would love to hear your ideas. I have a whole plant to use up.
