Although they say when life gives you lemons..make lemonade.. I say make a yummy lemony pesto instead..
In the Ode to the Lemon, Poet Pablo Neruda called  the juice of a lemon ‘nature’s most intense liqueur’….

Lemons. Lemons, this week is all about the lemon.. and my interview with charismatic actor Charly Chiarelli from the recently released film Road to the Lemon Grove.. a delicious film ..besides Charly Chiarelli’s great performance, there is food and the lush scenery of Sicily and what a great story.

Watch it and share a review with me here so we can share with everyone!

Did you watch Road to the Lemon Grove?? Here’s the perfect dish to have while watching:
For 4 people
remove the peel from 4 (uber) fresh in food processor with 3/4 cup shelled almonds and 1 tablespoon of salted capers 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Blend..use this pesto to dress a salad, or as a sauce for cous cous or  a refreshing sauce for cold summer pasta or even a hot pasta dish..
