Pesto sauce

Pesto sauce recipe

I use pesto sauce in a lot of grilling recipes, so I figured I'd share how I make it.  This is a slight variant on the pesto sauce from Joy of Cooking cook book.  I changed out the choice of cheese and recommend you use toasted pine nuts. Toasting the pine nuts gives an extra nutty flavor.

Blueberry barbecue sauce

Blueberry Barbecue Sauce

It is blueberry season down here in the South and it seems like there is a u-pick blueberry field on every corner.  My Kindergartner in the back seat has become quite the reader these days, so he reads said u-pick signs on every corner and we have to constantly have the same conversation about ho...

My friend Dave cooked some barbecue chicken for me the other day and let me in on his secret sauce. Basically he used any old generic BBQ sauce and kicked it up with some added ingredients.
