Honestly? It doesn't sound good to me BUT since it's a recipe coming from you, I'm gonna try it. My kids are big huge nut fans and this include any nut butters as well...they love onions and cucumbers too so what the heck, I will give it a go.
PS-I still haven't sent you my bean recipe...I will, I'm still in my lazy rut.


You've got my attention!!


alrightie, i'm a really bad late night snacker...i start to crave something by 9pm and can't get it out of my head so i usually give in. lucky for me i'm not on a diet or anything.

for some reason i was craving this sandwich (i never would have thought i'd crave one) so, i just made myself one (with only one slice of bread cut in two) and it ROCKS!

i'm sure the basil is important but i don't like basil so i used arugula instead and it was still really really good. i have found my newest recipe to kill...i will be making these for the next couple of weeks until everyone is so sick of them in my family. yum yum thanks again.


Porter, I KNOW! When I first saw the ingredients on the menu, I thought, huh? But it was soooo good. I make it often.


YUM: how cool! Posting later today about the PBJs! I adore this twist on the usual!

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
