My BASIL Plant!

Fresh Basil Plant

PS – I’m attempting an herb garden! Anyone who knows me, knows I have an affinity for killing plants. Even desert plants. Yeah, I’m that girl. Maybe my boyfriend will lock it down when he sees me successfully keep my herbs alive… I swear I’ll make a good mother. ha. But in my defense I think I give my little dying succulent garden too much attention… I will say though, I’ve been doing great with my herbs so far (2 weeks) and I love having fresh herbs without having to continuously purchase the tiny containers of overpriced ones that go bad in two days…

What’s your go to healthy recipe?! Please share in the comments.
