  7. Basil reminds me of big dinners, lots of italian, and just friendships with friends. I am German and still love it, because Italian rest. are always warm and welcoming.

  13. As a girl Mrs. Shady learned the art (and love) of cooking from her father who owned a restaurant in Baltimore. Today she tends her herb garden and makes liberal use of Basil in her cooking, particularly in pesto and salads as you mentioned. Have a wonderful weekend, dear Katie, and please give Izzy a biscuit from Shady!

  14. I’ve never grown, or even used fresh basil. Other than an occasional onion, or garlic, I don’t use much of anything… but I’m not much of a cook, either. My kids sure are! They didn’t get it from me.
