Pillsbury Love

Creamy Dill Panaznella saladohsweetbasil.com Pilsbury love

Have I ever told you that I write and photograph recipes for Pillsbury? Well, I do. And it has seriously been so much fun. I love the challenge of figuring out a recipe around one single ingredient, like the recipe above. I used the French Bread from Pillsbury, cooked up a few for dinner with friends one night and then used the leftovers to create this awesome delicious panzanella salad with a creamy dressing. If you haven’t experienced a bread salad yet you need to get on that. It’s seriously the best of both worlds, a delicious salad and the crusty bread all mixed into one.

And then there’s the BLT 3 Ways post that we did. You’ll want to hear about the first time I ever tried the classic BLT and our three favorite ways to enjoy this bacon-y delicious food. There’s the classic, the pizza, and the mini appetizer version. Can you guess which one is my favorite and why? I’ll give you a hint, it’s not the sandwich.

Creamy Lemon Basil Pasta with crusty, buttery bread ohsweetbasil.com Pilsbury love
