~ CLOSED ~ "The Herbal Kitchen" by Kami McBride - Review and Giveaway

    
      I love recipes, cooking, baking and entertaining. I love talking about these things, as well as comparing recipes and cooking techniques.  I’m always surrounded by cookbooks and read them like most people would read a novel!   So, when I had the opportunity to review "The Herbal Kitchen" by Kami McBride, I jumped at the chance. 
    This great book gives detailed information on 50 easy to find herbs, has more than 250 easy to follow recipes and includes a glossary of common herbal terms. 
     I recently made the “Paprika-Garlic Salt” and the “Rosemary Pesto”, the directions were easy to follow, they were simple to make and both turned out perfectly.
     Yesterday, I spent a long day doing battle with a pair of fancy high-heeled shoes and my feet lost!  When I came home I soaked my conquered feet in the “Sweet Dreams Foot Bath” and I never wanted to take them out, victory at last, it felt like a little piece of heaven!   
     Last week I had a bit of an upset stomach and instead of heading to the medicine cabinet, I remembered a remedy in this book and headed for the kitchen!  I brewed up some “Bay Leaf Tea”, which took a little longer to brew than your regular orange pekoe tea, but was well worth the wait.   Not only did it have a soothing and comforting aroma, it settled my upset stomach too.
     This book has a modern twist but harkens back to our great-grandparents and grandparents time, a time when people had a real connection to their gardens and to the land.  I will be keeping "The Herbal Kitchen"  on an easily accessed shelf in my kitchen; I can see myself reaching for this great resource over and over again.

BUY IT -  
You can purchase this book here or from most major book retailers.
WIN IT - 
Thanks to the generosity of Kami McBride and her publisher, one lucky reader will win their own copy of "The Herbal Kitchen".

We have grown chives and basil in the past but most notably however is the dill. I love it when it is still new and it literally looks fluffy. It reminds me of how a willow tree looks in the wind. My husband grows his cucumbers for pickles and of course he must grow his own dill also.;0)

Mint & basil. Mint is for cooking Lamb & basil for chicken. The mint is very easy to grow.

We don't have a garden, but I would love to. I think I'd grow mint and basil and garlic if it were possible because we use those the most.
