Some things are just easier demonstrated... like how to chiffonade basil. Really is an easy technique but the name "Chiffonade" can be intimidating.

And every year the favorite family memories are retold while someone gets embarrassed. Well, have you heard of Scentsy? I’m sure you have, I’m a regular of their wax scents and small wall . . .
