eating, i am a master at. cooking, not so much. i can't tell you how excited i am to be living under the same roof as my boyfriend again soon - because he more than makes up for my lack of talent in the culinary department. we are currently rediscovering the simple things, like homemade pesto with our home grown basil and roasted walnuts and pine nuts (a genius combination, so i learned). i was never really a big fan of pesto - but that was before we made our own, obviously. i loved tweaking the recipe until we got it just right for our taste.
