Cooking with Herbs

Cooking with Herbs

Few things make me feel more accomplished than being able to use my garden-grown produce when cooking. There’s something about it that makes me feel proud (and more like an adult, if we’re being completely honest). When cooking, I like to go off of smells to create my culinary artwork, but have realized when people ask for recipes I have no idea what to tell them. That’s when I decided to take some notes about the different herbs and spices I use when cooking. This blog post is a list of some of the herbs I use most, noticeable flavors/smells in each, and some suggested dishes/pairings.
