I recently read an article (link) regarding the benefits of cooking with herbs and spices. I have to admit it is only the last few years that I have incorporated herbs and various spices into my cooking. It has improved my dishes, they have more flavor and my kitchen does smell soooo good with them. I now have several herb plants, basil, thyme, rosemary, chives, oregano, etc. (It can be costly to buy fresh herbs! So much cheaper to grow them.) Do you use herbs and spices?
