Basil, Basil, Basil.

In this post I am referencing our out of control basil plants, not our out of control dog. Ha! In all seriousness though, we once again grew a lot of basil, and I already have enough pesto, so I need to come up with a different use that will let us extend the time that…

Zucchini Herb Scones

This year I only planted 1 zucchini plant and thank goodness! We love zucchini, and this year we actually have been keeping up with the vegetable.
