Ingredient Spotlight: Fresh Herbs 2012

I love growing fresh herbs in the garden.  There’s something lovely about wandering out to the backyard and pulling fresh basil leaves to add to the dinner pasta.

Or enjoying the scent by running my hand through the lavender while I water the plants.

Basil is my favorite fresh herb to grow.  It grows well and adds so much flavor to dishes.  But I also like growing chives, rosemary, thyme, mint…  I grow lavender just for the scent.  I’ve never tried cooking with it.  Have any of you? I’d love to see some recipes that use lavender, whether for food or homemade soaps or lotions.

Here are some of my recipes that use fresh herbs:
