Happy New Year 2013!



2012 flew by so fast. Lots of fun and exciting things happened to us in 2012. 
A new addition to our family (puppy), summer vacation (Puerto Rico), J's new job, and my short trip to Jakarta to see family and friends. We took bread making classes in San Francisco, watched a couple of touring Broadway shows, and shared some wonderful and memorable meals with family and friends.
All in all, 2012 was a great year.

So, on this first day of 2013, please allow me to wish you all a joyous and happy new year. May this new year brings immense happiness in all you do, the creativity and passion to cook and to try new things, and may we will never gain weight from all the cooking and eating we'll do in upcoming year.

Artichoke Lemon Pesto
Ingredients:
  • 1 can quartered artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat leaf Italian Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon rind
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

    1. I had it in the refrigerator for more than 2 weeks before we finished them all. It still tasted good. Might last a little longer, I think, but never done it. HTH :)
