This… is Summer on a plate. Or on a stick to be more precise! The other day, I found myself craving skewers on the grill. Good old Summer barbecue flavors, with juicy, marinated, tender meat. The kind that you eat with your hands and you don’t even care. In fact, the kind that tastes even better when you eat it like that. You get my point.
Happy Saturday, and happy milestone to me! Today is a big day for Stovetop Story, as I’m celebrating over a 1,000 followers! I can’t thank you all enough and I’m so proud of what this tiny project has turned into. Though it’s not much on the scale of the whole internet, I thought only my family would read my blog when I started out… So I’m super happy to share all of my recipes with as many of you lovely visitors as possible! And since it’s a great step forward, I decided to celebrate with a special post and a little treat: a heirloom tomato “mille-feuille”, with a deliciously creamy basil pesto!
For a long, long time, I thought I didn’t like guacamole. In fact, I knew I didn’t like it. I had tried a store-bought kind once, and never wanted to try it again afterwards. It’s ironic considering I eat it at least once a week now.
There’s something amazing about Rainbow carrots! I don’t know why, but I like them so much better than regular carrots. Kind of like how Heirloom tomatoes are tastier than regular ones. There’s something about their beautiful colors, that make them much greater.
