My Spring Kitchen | The Romance of Herbs

Sharing is Caring

Join me in My Spring Kitchen while I discuss the romance of herbs and create four recipes using fresh herbs straight from my garden. I hope you enjoys todays video and post.

It is one of the most beautiful times of year. The land seems renewed, the garden is ready to burst forward and give us it’s bounty. The sun is shinning but not too terribly hot to soak it up.

It is a time of great joy and harmony in the natural world. It is also a time when the herbs are abundant and a time when I like to take a more lighter approach in the kitchen.

Putting away the heaviness of winter meals and welcoming the freshness of the spring season.

I love to use herbs in my kitchen. There is something almost romantic about them.

The pleasure of heading out the door with my scissors and a basket to collect them on a beautiful spring day. Bringing them inside with all their vibrant smells that fill the air the moment you begin to chop them. If I only grew two things it would be flowers and herbs. Each providing a beauty and an experience for daily life.

Today I am making a dill potato salad. I am also making a Tuscan spring salad, Steak with Herb Butter and Rosemary Butter Cookies for dessert.

Foods made in the most simplest of ways seem to be the most delicious. Below I will share the recipe links with you. Each of these foods utilizes different fresh herbs from the garden providing a freshness and aromatic quality.

I can remember a time when herbs intimidated me. I didn’t understand the flavor components and felt they weren’t worth adding to meals. As I become more skilled in the kitchen and experienced in life. I am recognizing the little touches that add beauty and vibrancy to daily living. Like the growing and use of herbs on a spring day.

“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love.”

Sitting Bull

A small but measurable moment of joy that can transform a mundane task like cooking into an enjoyable one.

Thank you for joining me in todays post. I hope it inspired you in your spring kitchen.
