Herbs and Spice and Everything Nice!

Guess who the proud owner of this herb and spice rack is to your left? . . . . ME! I am so happy to have it. I love it! Mom actually set me up with all these containers and labels. She is so awesome! I got the shelving at a garage sale for a couple dollars and now walla! I love it and use it everyday! I used to wonder how people could use so many different herbs and spices. How did they know how and when to use them? Well, I am still learning, but, a lot of it comes from just trying them out over time. I'd follow a recipe and try a new one out. You get used to a flavor and then you can match it with other flavors. It can be really fun for me and more over when the herbs or spices you are using in a culinary fashion have medicinal action as well, it's delightful to learn! We have the power with in us and around us to create, heal, and enjoy life. This week I challenge us all to try out some herbs and/or spices. Learn about their characteristics and how to use them. This is a great time to plant some too! I look forward to what we all have to share! Have a great week! P.S. Sorry for the funky placement of the pictures. They were not cooperating, so I gave up trying.  You get the idea.


  1. What a wonderful topic! Your herbs are looking really good! The oregano, lavender and thyme are from your garden, right?

  2. They are, thanks mom! I love you!

  3. Wow! Your plants are so big already! Kelly, I'm going to mail you a little lens cleaning rag so you can wipe that thumb print off your camera lens ;)

  4. I finally caught that today as I was taking photos. Ooops! I have kids! and they like my stuff!! :)

  5. Just so you know, those plants are perrenials, so they are big cause they were already there. They are just green instead of brown now. :) But they are big and looooovely. I love to rub my fingers in the thyme and lavender. They are the yummiest smells.
