Pesto & Sun-Dried Tomato Spread

"This comes from my aunt who makes a GREAT homemade pesto. A great appetizer that goes very well with wine. If you're like me and not a huge fan of goat cheese-you can substitute the goat cheese with more cream cheese/try feta. If you're looking for a great pesto recipe I recommend #81307. cooking time is chilling time. the longer it sits, the better the flavours."

  1. *Reviewed for Cooking Photos Forum 8th Photo Swap* Fantastic! So easy to put together -used the Kitchenaid mixer and this recipe was done from start to finish in 5 minutes flat! (Took longer to wash up)> Loved this spread- tasted great when made...tasted even better the next day I'm not a goat cheese fan , so used Australian fetta cheese in its place. Also made this when I had guests doesn't like walnuts- so I used pecans as a substitute. Delicious. A big hit with everyone who tried it. For me, I served with some gluten-freee crackers for a gf treat :) Thanks for posting such a quick and easy recipe
  2. Made for photo swap Jan '08. This came together quick and tasted fantastic! Thanks :)


I'm a stay at home mommy of 2. I was raised in St. Jacobs, Ontario, Canada. My favorite cookbook comes from the public school I went to in St. Jacobs. I love it because the recipes are personal ones that are tried and true! I love to cook, bake, can, etc. I consider myself really fortunate to have been raised in an area where home baking and canning where the norm. I watched my mom and grandma preparing homemade jams and pickles every year and I caught the "bug". I really enjoy simple, delicious recipes! However, if a recipe is amazing I don't mind putting the extra time and expense into it.
