Using Fresh Herbs in Your Recipes

Living in Monrovia
A small herb garden can add fresh flavor to liven up your meals.

Springtime is finally here in Central Ohio, and for some, that means steering away from root vegetables and heavy soups and moving toward fresher, lighter fare. Think artichoke salad with chive and oregano vinaigrette or harvest focaccia with grapes, rosemary, and parmesan. 

Those are two recipes from “Cooking with herbs: 50 simple recipes for Fresh Flavor.” Listen to the show and hear us discuss gardening and cooking with fresh oregano, basil, mint and more.
