Herbs in my Garden

The weather is finally turning where I am at. Spring is in the air and I feel the need to get out and garden. I happily admit that as much as I like to cook, I like to play in the dirt too. If I can combine the two even better. Today was spent getting my pots on my back deck ready for planting fresh herbs. Making my list of herbs and seeds to purchase. Who doesn’t like to have fresh herbs while they cook. In the past my two favorites have been Rosemary and Basil. Every time I go out there during the summer I would run my hands on the plants and then smell my hands. Silly I know, but how can you not like the fragrant bouquet from these two plants. However last year after making compound butter, Tarragon has become my new favorite.  I have been trying to figure out dishes to use this tasty herb.  Surprisingly I think eggs are favorite paring with Tarragon.  This year I hope to be able to harvest and dry herbs which I usually never get a chance to do.  What is your favorite herb? What is your favorite dish to use it in?

  1. I like using Basil leaves on chicken breasts with sliced tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Simple and good. And of course with pasta dishes.

    • Do you buy fresh basil or do you have some planted. Know that Arizona heat can be killer for it as the Georgia heat can almost do it in as well. I really have to baby mine.this was the reason Basil use to be my favorite to cook with, and try to use it in all our Italian dishes.
