Rex's Recipes: Adventure Pesto

Rex's Recipes: Adventure Pesto

 

I love food - cooking and eating delicious things are two activities I devote a good chunk of my leisure time to.  When Jill suggested I write a recipe section for the blog I thought it would be a great way to share what's cookin' in my home kitchen and my current food obsessions.
