About This Cookbook

Cooking with herbs is like being part of a small rebellion. The pleasure of growing our own food—even a few stalks of basil or rosemary—helps many of us withstand our too-full lives and concrete and macadam worlds.

The satisfaction of cooking with fresh ingredients—perhaps some lemon thyme or apple mint—brings energy both to preparing food and to eating it. We are not—we will not be—completely captive to packaging and advertising and carry-in speed meals!

Herbs, with all their personality, liven up any dish, yet don't require a major cooking production. They are, in fact, humble ingredients in what they ask of a cook. But they sing out when they are put in place—either mixed in early, or added impromptu at the end of preparing a dish.

Herbs do their part, whether fresh or dried, albeit with somewhat different effect. So you don't need your own pot or garden, or even supermarket-fresh varieties, to add herbs to your meals. We give suggested portions of both fresh and dried herbs in most recipes in this book.

Favorite Recipes with Herbs is a cookbook. Herbs have medicinal and cosmetic and aromatic properties, but we do not cover those uses here.

Instead, we offer cooking recipes using 14 herbs within easy reach of most of us who live within temperate or subtropical climates. These herbs are not exotic plants. They are good for beginning herb growers; they are favorites of veteran herb farmers.

We have also tapped the knowledge and experience of herb shopkeepers across the country. What a wonderful variety of recipes has resulted! What downright useful and imaginative tips!

Join this growing group of cooks. Favorite Recipes with Herbs will give you many recipes and ideas to follow—and will likely lead you to experimenting happily on your own, freed from bland cooking forever!

—Dawn J. Ranck and Phyllis Pellman Good

    If you will have one cookbook to incorporate herbs into your daily meals, this should be the one.

    Many recipes using herbs are just for party foods or other special occasion recipes, but the recipes in this collection are practical for use every day. These recipes incorporate a variety of herbs into frequently served menus, branching out beyond the standard parsley, rosemary and thyme. I can be creative with the wide variety of herbs I like to grow, but still cook foods that everyone will enjoy every day.

    A Practical Cookbook Using Herbs

    Since I bought this cookbook last July (1998), it has become my favorite cookbook. I started a herb garden and I was looking for a basic cookbook to help me use the herbs in my cooking. The recipes are easy and the results have been great. I have tried about 30 recipes and none has disappointed me. Today I am having a small dinner party. Most of the dishes are coming from this book. So I decided to order a copy of this book for each couple.
