The love of my life adds much to my daily existence. She adds appreciation to many things, but sadly has taken away my love for cilantro.
I used to love cilantro, there could never be too much of this herb in my food. I would go out of my way to order cilantro-spiced dishes at restaurants and always kept a couple of fresh sprigs ready in my refrigerator.
Then my wife killed my love for cilantro. Her weapon of choice: this cilantro pesto recipe (click "MORE" for the recipe). The pesto was a cilantro bomb in my mouth, and ever since, I can only tolerate cilantro as a background flavoring in limited quantities. I still love my wife, but cilantro is no longer my mistress.
