When designing our garden collections, we kept in mind their flavors and menu uses for all our beginner and experienced home chefs. We love that you have GIY'd with us (garden-it-yourself) and now it's time to put those herbs to use! Easy, quick, and beginner recipes are what we are always in search for!
Below are some of our favorite recipes by our lovely lil sis @thecooking_bee based in Jersey City, NJ. Recipes are sorted by garden collection.
