Ladies and gentlemen: I, Monica Bhide, should really excuse myself from writing this column, having never cooked with fresh oregano. Shameful, no? Can you please forgive me?
I hope you will forgive me and read more here for some really fun and easy recipes including a recipe from the wonderful, Food Network star Ellie Krieger and also food blogger Charmian Christie.
And a request: Do you have PTSD due to a spice or herb? Share your stories of kitchen disasters about herbs and spices with me and you could be featured in this column. Write to me by Dec. 20, be sure to put “Kitchen Disasters” in your e-mail subject line and email me please!
