Herbs are easy to raise, even if you've never gardened before. Spring is the time to plant herbs. If you have the space, you can plant a formal herb garden that is as attractive as it is plentiful.

I made pesto a few weeks ago, and the recipe I used called for toasted pine nuts. I usually just use raw, but I thought I’d give it a try. While I was whizzing them in my food processor, they gave off the most indescribably delectable smell, and my pesto tasted amazing! I highly recommend it, as it only takes a minute to toast them dry in a frying pan.


Plumber - thanks for the tip! I usually don't use pine nuts, even though they're delicious, because of what for me is a prohibitive price. But should I come into a windfall, I will definitely try your technique!
