All About Basil

Today is Memorial Day, the unofficial kick-off to summer. Yee haw! Don’t you just love it? All the burgers and potato salad, my besties and beer, suntanning, bikinis and flip flops. I could just about live in summer forever. Oh wait. I kinda do. I live in Florida. Tee hee. But my memories of summer, and the contrast with winter, come from spending most of my life in Canada. So I get it. Summer is the best and it’s time to celebrate it.

One of the things I love most about summer is that there’s a whole lot of basil going on. My favorite herb starts growing in gardens and in big pots and everyone gets into it adding it to their salads and cocktails and just about everywhere. That’s why we decided to do a whole big series on basil. And this is a big series. Trust me. Your brain will be blown by the number of basil tips, how to’s and recipes coming your way. Blown!

Ooooo…I can’t wait for you to see what we’ve got! If you’re as excited as I am, you don’t have to wait. We already packaged up everything for you in a convenient little ebook, all about basil. To get it, sign up below. Done!

OK, grab your mozzarella and tomatoes, olive oil and sea salt, strawberries and raspberries (say what? Don’t worry. You’ll see) and let’s get started!

Happy Memorial Day! Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do!
