Although pâté might not be up your alley (it's made from chicken liver), I highly recommend trying it at least once in your life, because it's delicious. Pair it with some cheese and a baguette, and you've got yourself a match made in heaven.
I've been eating and loving pâté since I was a kid. (I wasn't your average kid though... I was the kind who would have opted for blue cheese and pâté over a King sized Kit-Kat any day of the week.) Moral of the story- if a kid can eat pâté, so can you!
I've been a pesto lover since I was a kid. I mean really, what's not to love. It's great with pasta, as a dip, on pizza, or on your finger as you're taking it out of the Cuisinart... Regardless of how you enjoy it, you can now make it at home with this super fast, inexpensive, and easy recipe. (Seriously, it only takes about 5 minutes to make and consists of 8 easy to find ingredients.) It's also really versatile because it tastes great both hot and cold.
