One of our favorite summer meals is cool pesto pasta. When we have it, I use homemade pesto. It is so easy to make and tastes wonderful, here is the recipe for you to try.
5 or so Cloves of Garlic
15 Large Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Cup of Pine Nuts (a more frugal option will be Walnuts, Pecans, or Cashews and it works just fine)
Salt and Pepper to taste
7 or so Tablespoons of Olive Oil
We mix with pasta, cut up cherry tomatoes and chicken for a cool summer salad. Super Yummy!!!
Have you ever made gravy from scratch before? Roast a chicken in the oven and you will be left with drippings that are TOO YUMMY to waste. I wanted to share the recipe in case some of you have never made gravy from the drippings before.
This time I had about 2 cups of drippings in the bottom of the baking dish after roasting the chicken in the oven. Pour the drippings into a large sauce pan. If there is lots of fat skim some of it off. Heat the drippings up, over medium- heat and bring it to a boil
In another bowl add 1 tablespoon corn starch to 1/2 cup of cold water. Mix till all the lumps are out of the corn starch and it is well mixed… then you can slowly add it your chicken drippings. Whisk the whole time, to prevent lumps. Stir at a full boil for 1 minute, then turn heat off and let stand for 1 minute. Salt and pepper to taste (chicken gravy tends to need a lot of salt).
If you like your gravy a little thicker add a little more corn starch to your “corn starch water mixture”
