Dr. Bronner's coconut oil from Whole Foods. I prefer this brand because
it has the least flavor to it so it doesn't interfere with the taste of other foods. It is also
packaged in a glass container.
I like to use it in place of butter in chocolate chip cookies and bars.
Fresh basil. Mmmm, so fragrant :)
After the rain
Sad basil :(
