Twists ‘n Thyme

Thyme PestoI love using fresh herbs when I am cooking.  This winter I was blessed with an abundance of fresh herbs growing in my Tower Garden.  So much so that I had to get creative with Thyme.

That brought me to create Thyme Pesto.

Thyme Pesto

This is so delicious.  I would like to encourage you all to try it.  I used this pesto in my Sunday chicken dinner.  I slipped it under the skin of the chicken, added in some potatoes that were cut in quarters and tossed with the pesto, then roasted the bird and the potatoes together in the oven.  The house smelled amazing and the chicken tasted great.  I served that with a freshly picked green salad and oh what a lovely meal we had.

I then used my Thyme Pesto another night on zoodles…. yum! And I have a jar of it left.  Lucky me!

I think I might purchase some fish and maybe use a little of the Thyme Pesto on the fish when I bake it.

How would you use it?  I would love your ideas.

I hope you enjoy your day.  Thanks so much for inviting me in.

Xxo,

Patti

 

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge (dairy free)-almost as good as Cadbury Eggs

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Good morning my friend and happy Easter to those that celebrate,

A few weeks back my friend Sally invited me to her house for lunch.  She made this AMAZING salad complete with kale! When I sat down to eat I saw this most adorable brightly wrapped Cadbury Caramel Egg right next to my fork.  She said…”that’s our dessert”.  Well what she didn’t know was that I had never eaten a Cadbury Caramel Egg befor because I grew up with chocolate Easter bunnies instead.

Anyway, after lunch I unwrapped my egg, placed it on my plate and tried to eat it with a fork and knife.  My friend Sally kindly informed me that you have to bite into the egg, taking a small bite and then “slowly savor it”.  Oh my goodness….it was amazing.

That experience inspired me to make dairy free Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge for our Easter Sunday dessert.

I must say this fudge is every bit as good as that Cadbury Egg so I wanted to share it with you.  If you make it let me know what you think.

Well that’s it for today….may your day be full of blessings!

Ta-ta,

Patti
