Cooking With Fresh Herbs

    Thanks for sharing those herbal blends! We have basil, mint, rosemary, thyme, garlic, coriander, lemons, oregano, chillies all growing in the garden – so I think we will be able to try some of those blends!

  2. Thank you for this encouragement. It’s my goal to experiment with basil this summer!

      Basil is one of my all-time favorite herbs, Michele – I even put a couple of basil leaves in my water with a slice of cucumber. It is so refreshing!

  3. What an awesome article. I have mint every year because it makes the deck smell so good, but I never remember to use it in the kitchen.
    You have sparked an interest. I am going to buy a book and plant others.
    Thank you for sharing at #omhgww. Pinned and tweeted if buttons are available. See you next week.

      Thanks Clearissa–and thanks for having me at your party! Looking forward to the next one 🙂 Some bugs decided to take up occupancy on my mint this week, so I’m hoping my efforts get rid of the bugs and revives my mint to where it was when I wrote this article. I love putting some mint leaves with cucumber slices in my ice water – it’s so refreshing!

  5. Probably the most used herbs in my cooking are Basil, Rosemary, cilantro and parsley. I have in containers, parsley, rosemary and thyme. Oh and then there’s the runaway spearmint. I do need to use fresh herbs that you have mentioned. My son is one that is creative.

      Those are my favorite herbs to use too, Karren! I have thyme growing in one of my containers but it’s not thriving though the oregano really took off this year. Thank you for sharing my post on your wonderful blog and enjoy the herbs in your garden!
