Home Is Where My Story Begins

Sundried Tomato, Pesto, and Cream Cheese Spread

Here’s a super-simple recipe for you to tuck away until you need a last minute appetizer for a party.  It’s almost embarrassing to call this a recipe, because it’s that simple.

Start with a block of softened cream cheese.
Chop a small handful of basil and mix it into the cream cheese.
Spread the mixture on a plate.
Top with pesto (homemade is best, but store bought will do just fine).
Dice up a few sundried tomatoes and spread those over the top.
Garnish with a sprig of fresh basil.

We served this dip with Pita chips and it was pretty yummy.  One of my hubby’s coworkers asked for the recipe and I was truly embarrassed at how easy this was.

The mint brownies we brought to the party took quite a bit more work, so at least I didn’t feel too guilty!

I loved being able to use the fresh mint and basil from my garden for these two dishes.  Fresh herbs make everything pretty. Here’s the link to the mint brownie recipe if you missed that one.
Happy gardening, cooking, and baking!
