This week I have another recipe using fresh basil from my endless garden supply. It is a stir fry recipe with top round steak–a leaner and healthier cut of beef. The recipe is from my brother-in-law who enjoys cooking; and according to the title it tastes outstanding.
If you don’t like mustard greens; try this soup made with fresh mustard greens and ham. You might be surprised that greens are so tasty. I served the soup with pipping hot Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins. Both are easy to make and warm the soul on a cold afternoon.
My persimmon tree is loaded with fruit this year. Enough for me, the birds, the squirrels and some to give away. I have several ideas for recipes including a variation on a cheesecake and persimmon salsa. But I’ve never known what kind of persimmon tree is growing in my backyard. A search for answers led me on an adventure to a unique persimmon grove in the heart of Baton Rouge.
