- I walked by a demonstration in Costco the other day. They were sampling this Parmesan, Garlic Basil Butter. They had made grilled cheese with it. BAM! It just kicked up a preschool lunch to gourmet status. Intrigued, I walked over to the display case while still savoring the last bite in my mouth to pick up a container. Looking at the ingredients, I decided to save my $11 and go home and make it myself with the stuff I already had at home. So, here it is. This is served best with this soup.
- 1/2 lb unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 4 tsp. dried basil
- 1 -1 1/2 clove garlic, finely minced or pressed
- 1 1/2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
My grandmother, with whom I share the same middle name, used to sing a little song to me when I was little prior to tickling me with her fingers (which posed as a bee), "There once was a bee who lived in a tree; and all he could do was bzzzzz sting, sting, sting sting...." (then the tickling ensued).
This site is in memory of her and the warmth all grandmothers and mothers give in making good food and creating memories in the kitchen.
