I love gardening, especially when it comes to planting and tending to my herb garden. I grow basil and a few other herbs indoors and I have a huge Rosemary plant outside.
Rosemary is a perennial and since I live in the southeast, I have Rosemary all year long. I’ve been known to rush outside in the freezing cold to snip a few sprigs of Rosemary to flavor fish, meats, tomato sauce and more. A little Rosemary goes a long way, so use a light hand when cooking with this herb.
Herbs are plants with savory or aromatic properties that are used for flavoring and garnishing food. Some of my favorite herbs include basil, chives, dill, cilantro, and mint.
Helpful Hint: Plant mint in containers because it grows quickly and will soon overtake a herb garden.

I’m also a pesto lover. Pesto usually consists of crushed basil leaves, pine nuts, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil. However, pesto is so much more than a delicious sauce for pasta. Pesto can be used in so many other ways. Here are a few ways I use homemade pesto: Use on pizza. Spread on Italian bread slices for Bruschetta. Spoon a dab on top of sea scallops, steaks, and baked potatoes before serving.
Basil Pesto is so easy to make and you can grab the recipe and see more of my favorite herbs in this post.
