RECIPE BACKSTORY
For when you want a taste of summer when its chilly outside. I first made this recipe this summer using my fresh garden herbs, including Thai basil and parsley. Most of my herbs are dying out now, but I can always find fresh cilantro for cheap at the grocery store anytime of the year..
