Family Cooking Teacher

Young Bruce's wife Maddie is a super cook. Her brother Patrick and sister-in-law Marie are both graduates of the CIA so it must run in the family. We all love especially when Maddie makes her thin-crusted pizzas with homemade dough. She often makes pancakes and waffles for breakfast - sometimes with help. Maddie's recipes include: Marilyn created a fabulous pesto modeled after a spread she and Young tasted in a Harvard Square restaurant. Delicious served on slices of good bread.

Marilyn's Red Pepper Walnut Pesto
2-3 red bell peppers, roasted
2 oz (3/4 cup) walnuts
2 garlic cloves
3 - 4 sprigs cilantro
crushed red pepper (peperoncino) to taste

optional lime or lemon rind
fresh jalapeño instead of peperoncini

Put everything in food processor and blend until smooth.
