Healthy Cooking with Fresh Herbs


Tomato Basil Bruschetta (recipe link)

Discover your inner gardener and unleash your inner chef at the same time! Plant and cook with fresh herbs. I’ve put together the following slide show to help you discover:

  • Which herbs you have to plant every year and which come up year after year.
  • Delicious food and herb combinations
  • Recipe ideas
  • Beautiful herb garnishes (lots of photos)
  • How to dry and freeze herbs

If you’d like to share this slide show on your blog, get the directions for embedding it from SlideShare. Or,  download a free PowerPoint using these slides from this webpage. You also are welcome to use any of my pictures of herbs from Flickr or follow my Pinterest Herb Board.

As you can tell, I am quite smitten with fresh herbs and want to spread the word about using them. I’ve love to hear about your experiences!


My husband and I enjoy eating healthy foods, but they must taste good and be quick to prepare.

My goal with Cook It Quick is: Making you hungry for healthy food!

Follow along as I share recipes and kitchen tricks that help you enjoy the same types of foods. And though I am a registered dietitian and University of Nebraska-Lincoln extension educator, all my recipes must pass inspection by my toughest critic … my husband!
