QUICK + EASY ENTERTAINING TIPS

create your own herb garden

I love to cook with fresh herbs, especially when they’re in the height of the season. And having fresh herbs at your fingertips makes cooking a whole lot easier. For a single cook, being able to grab a small portion of an herb when I need it is a huge savings on my budget. And there’s no waste. I use only what I need, when I need it.

As soon as herbs are in season, I head to my local garden shop and buy some plants. I put them around my kitchen in pots and plant the bigger ones out in the garden. Some of my preferred staples are: basil, thyme, rosemary, cilantro and Italian parsley.

If you don’t already do this, try it. It’s amazing what having fresh herbs right at your fingertips will do for your cooking.
