Texas Pecan Pesto

by evh October 12, 2010

When invited over to a friends place for dinner and asked to bring something, I always seem to have a lot of questions. Shall I bring a side dish? A salad? A dessert? An appetizer? Wine? Or a little bit of  everything? The other night, after being asked to join friends for dinner, I realized […]
