~ The New May Herbs on Saturday Blog Challenge ~
Win a copy of The Herb Garden for Cooks Book
Due to popular demand, I am starting up my Herbs on Saturday Recipe Sharing Blog Challenge again……a simple and easy way to share recipes throughout the month and also a chance to learn new ways to cook with herbs, as well as discover new blogs and blogger chums! I will be hosting this blog challenge every month now, and there will be a special page dedicated to this event at the top of my blog, where you can check past month’s recipes, the round-ups and also the guidelines about how to enter. I am happy for people to guest host this event………so if you fancy hosting this one month, please email me or tweet me! Cooking with herbs is normal for me; I have always cooked with herbs, they enhance a recipe and are also beneficial to health…..I am a proud owner of a walled herb garden, where I grow most of my own herbs, specialising in heirloom and old fashioned herbs of which my favourites are lavender and lovage!
All you have to do to enter is add your ANY recipe that you have made throughout the week to the linky below, and NOT just recipes that have been made on a Saturday; at the end of each month I will post a round up and ask a “special blogger” to choose their favourite recipe from the ones that have been posted, and the recipe that is chosen will win a COOKBOOK! This month’s book is the LOVELY The Herb Garden for Cooks Book which is published by Dorling Kindersley. Here’s a little more information about this informative book:
The practical, plot-to-plate guide to growing and cooking with herbs successfully
From Basil to Vervain, this photographic catalogue of more than 130 culinary herbs will teach you everything you need to know on nurturing, harvesting and cooking with herbs.
Delve into this little book to find notes on herb flavours, the best growing conditions, storage and how to use them in the kitchen. There are inspirational planting schemes for window boxes and pots including Mediterranean, Everyday Essentials and Salad Herbs.
Packed with more than 70 delicious recipes for rubs and marinades, sauces and salsas, flavoured butters, cordials, syrups, teas and tisanes, plus charts on best herb-with-food flavour combinations.
To get you in the Herbs mood, I am sharing one of my most popular recipes with you now, Herbes de Provence; you can read more about this recipe here: Auberge Blend – Herbes de Provence for Herbs on Saturday & my Famous Photo! The recipe is posted below, and this famous herbal mix is a “must” for so many dishes and recipes, and it also makes a wonderful gift for a foodie friend . So, DO join in, this event will run until the end of May, and the guidelines about how to enter are below.
