I made this pesto last August with a big pile of basil leaves from my garden, and everyone went absolutely crazy for it! It was far easier than I expected. I only have a mini food processor so I made it in little batches and it turned out perfectly. This summer, I will try to make it every couple weeks so I have enough to freeze a batch for winter. So angry at myself for not doing that last summer. I skipped the parsley but I did add lemon juice as a few reviewers recommended. The lemon juice did not change the taste noticeably and it definitely helped to preserve the bright green color. My Italian mother in law was actually impressed. That's rare, so it's a definite winner in my book!

Lemon Chicken Piccata
This recipe is very similar to a recipe in "The New Basics" cookbook. The cookbook, however, does not recommend adding the lemon slices until the very end. I think the early addition of the lemon slices with the peel on is the cause of the bitterness. This has been a hit in my house since the early '90s.

Molasses Cookies
Delicious & chewy! Very easy to make. My kids, who were initially afraid of a cookie featuring molasses, instructed me to put the recipe in the good recipes box. An instant hit!
