Tuscan Almond Pesto

by Tenina Holder

Well, no entertaining Christmas occasion is complete without the obligatory plate of dip and crackers/chips…and this will knock your guests socks off, if they are wearing them. I am gifting you this early. I had been saving it for the N.E.W. book that is on it’s way next year sometime. (Acronym for Never Ever Winished…think hoity toity speech impediment!) In the meantime, keep my spirits up by visiting me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or just go buy something! Then I shall be renewed, invigorated and all of this will take on new meaning...

Happy Party Season!
