My enthusaism for food eventually betrayed itself in my cocktail blog, Rejiggered. I posted two of my favorite snack recipes there.
One was a bright grilled pineapple salsa I served it to some good friends who came over for drinks and dinner. I am intrigued by the deep, smoky flavors grilled fruits bring to salsa. This recipe is just the first of many variations, I am sure.
Another was a simple pesto recipe. I tend to prefer assertive flavors, in pesto and in general, so this version is heavy on garlic and pepper. I brought it to a cocktail party this summer, along with crostini -- and brought back an empty bowl.
