✅ Best Cook Book On Family Dinner With Herbs

Great book to keep in the kitchen – a book that shows you simple and many times quick ways to use herbs every day. If you’re looking for a way to add more herbs into your life or even just more flavor into your cooking, then I recommend checking this book out. The recipes are easy to make and a delight to use.

As you can see, it’s a jungle out there, and worse, the more aggressive plants like the basil were choking the light from the smaller plants (believe it or not, all the basil you see in the picture is coming out of just one plant!)
Going to good ol’ AllRecipes.Com, I found a recipe for Cajun Seafood Pasta. It used 1 cup of chopped parsley (the parsley in the Aerogarden is still quite anemic, but I still have the potted parsley which grew back from last time), as well as a tablespoon of basil and a tablespoon of chopped thyme. 
So, I started chopping. I was pretty liberal with the basil:

As for the thyme, even after giving a major haircut to both thyme plants, I was able to get a whole tablespoon together.

The recipe called for making a cream sauce, using two cups of real cream. I’m always a little amused by dieters who will eschew ice cream, only to eat bowl after bowl of pasta which probably contains more cream! 

Toss with some fettucine, fresh shrimps and scallops, this was a recipe that was really worthy of the 4 1/2 stars it got from 657 AllRecipes users. I didn’t really see where the “Cajun” came in, as even with three kinds of pepper I didn’t really taste much of a kick. Still, it tasted really, really good.
