We all have a favorite cookbook or app that we go to when we want to cook something special. I know my own cookbook collection is quite extensive and covers a lot of different specialities. Okay… I’ll admit it. I’m just a sucker for a nice cookbook with lots of pictures!

However, when I started growing herbs, I discovered that my collection was useless if I wanted to use my bumper crop of some herb. I couldn’t search ‘lemon verbena’, for instance, to find a way to use the herb. That was frustrating. I felt that there must be other ways to use some of these plants besides tossing a handful of oregano into a pot of tomato sauce!

And so this page was born. RECIPES. Not a very impressive name but then, sometimes simple is the best way to go.

As I find recipes that feature a particular herb, I will post them here. If YOU have a recipe that features your favorite herb, please send it to me in our “Contact Us” page.  I will personally review it and share it here on our RECIPES page. If you include a photo, that will also be shared, along with an acknowledgement to give you credit for the recipe.

I hope you will join me in this journey to learn to cook with the herbs we grow!
