  • I use dill weed often! It's really good. I sprinkle it in tuna salad, egg salad, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, and more. It gives you that pickle flavor without being overpowering.

  • I usually use Rosemary with chicken and soups. Fennel can be used in many things. Thyme I use mostly in soups and casseroles. Corriander is kinda like cilantro. Marjoram is close to oregano and can be used instead.

  • herbs de provence are awesome for french style pot roast-- easy recipe!

    thyme is good in soups. so good in soups.
    dill is awesome mixed with sour cream to top salmon cakes!
    rosemary is good for roasting veggies to go with red meats. toss it with potatoes and a little olive oil and make amazing steak fries.
    Coriander is used in asian cooking, marjoram is used in french and italian cooking, fennel seed has a licorice type flavor and it good for promoting breast milk production
