I have a fun little swag bag for you this week, all about herbs! First there’s a sweet little cookbook from Gourmet Garden (recipes are not all vegan or gluten-free) and coupons for 3 free tubes of their fresh herb pastes. You’ll also receive the fantastic herb chopper from Microplane. I have their grater/zester and it’s awesome. I also picked up a fun assortment of dried herbs from Northgate Market, an amazing Mexican grocery store chain here in Southern California. And finally, a pretty re-usable grocery tote from Trader Joe’s. SWEEPSTAKES IS NOW CLOSED.
Here is this week’s question:
Are you more likely to use dried or fresh herbs when cooking? Why?
Required FTC disclosure: The book and coupons were provided by Gourmet Garden. The herbs from NortHgate Market were purchased with a gift card from the Idaho Potato Commission. I won the Trader Joe’s bag. I purchased the Microplane chopper for this giveaway. I was not paid to write this post.
