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!*
