Yea, I started an herb garden (don't hate!)

If you've been keeping up with my blog you would see that I have already endeavored on cake decorating thanks to Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss. But since then I have taken up a new obsession with cooking shows. I've learned to appreciate the "art" in the Culinary Arts. This obsession has lead to the purchase of a food processor that I just HAD to have (my valentine's gift from the Hubbs - I think he's already preparing for the immersion blender and standing cake mixer request) Anyway, I noticed that many recipes called for fresh herbs and on the shows some cooks would just pull the herbs right off of the plants in their kitchen. Sooooo, I went to the Nursery yesterday and bought Pineapple Mint (I had no idea that this existed), Parsley and Cilantro...I bought organic soil, repotted them and voila!
*quick tip, when buying herbs: you can't smell them by sniffing the leaves, you need to rub a leaf between two fingers and then smell your fingers!*


  1. Oh to have that kind of time! I've been on Spring Break and have finally reawakened my love for HGTV and have so many plans for my house. Ao I totally get the watching cooking shows and new obsessions. I love the idea of an herb garden but I have a black thumb. You know I kill all living plants even when I try so hard to help them grow.

  2. I bought a huge rosemary bush two weeks ago. It's already starting to turn brown in spots.
    I can't plant it outside because the crazy family bought goats. I think they're up to 10.
