So for this week’s WHB, I thought I’d share a few oldies but goodies.
First up is the Herbs and Three Cheese Penne I just wrote about the other day so it's not old but it has become my new favorite thing that I plan on making over and over and over. The herb stars are basil & oregano
Next up is one post with two favorite herbs. The Spicy Mango Coleslaw has plenty of cilantro (or fresh coriander for my friends Down Under). The Roasted Potato & Garlic Salad is chock full of fresh mint. Now the short ribs don’t have any herbs, but they do taste amazing. This is one of my favorite summer meals. Maybe I should make some now and pretend….
And last, but certainly not least, Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes. The star herb here is thyme. They’re paired here with some pan grilled tilapia that’s sprinkled with cilantro. It sounds like the pairing of herbs would clash. But trust me, they work well together because the sweet potatoes are – what else – sweet and the tilapia has some heat to it. The lime on the sweet potatoes add tang and go perfectly with cilantro.
Organizing my recipes on one level was a royal pain…it was tedious and detailed work and anyone who knows me, knows I’m more of a “big picture” person who gets bored with all the details. On the other hand, it was like that long put off dreaded chore of going through your closets and then finding some forgotten treasures...a wonderful rush!!!
