A Pie Disaster turns into a Yummy Crumble

I had a bit of a baking disaster the other day.  I was trying to make a gallette and while I was transfering it to the pan it fell apart.  It was a lovely peach pie turned peach crumble. 

Basil Cubes

Have a bunch of basil?  I do.  My neighbor grew a ton and has given me a whole pot!  So I've been making Basil Cubes.  Its really simple.  Just pull all the leaves off the stem and place them in a blender or food processor. Blend while pouring in water slowly until the desired consistency.  Pour into ice cube trays.  When frozen place them in a bag.  When cooking just add a basil cube.  Tastes so fresh!
