I have recently started cooking a lot more. Actually this year I cooked a Christmas Eve dinner for my family, including my dad. I have started experimenting with different herbs and spices, mostly just the dried stuff I can just shove in my cabinet when I’m done since I don’t have time to buy fresh and chop it up myself. Thanks to Gourmet Garden I can have fresh herbs and spices on hand at any given time!
Gourmet Garden makes tubes of fresh herbs and spices that you keep in the refrigerator. Their ingredients are organically grown and the only thing they do is wash, chop, blend and pack them into tubes.
My favorite go to meal is my chicken and noodles. My kids love it and it is very easy to prepare. I try to make it different each time but the basics are the same: I boil the chicken, then remove it and put noodles and spices in the same water that the chicken was cooked in. While the noodles are boiling, I cut up the chicken into tiny bits and add them back to the noodles. The one thing I always add is garlic, and slowly I’m getting brave enough to add different things like onions and such. I used to get garlic salt and add that but now that I have Gourmet Garden garlic, I add that and the flavor is much better. I just fixed this dish yesterday for my kids dinner and I looked on the ingredient list for the dry spice combination I used normally and realized I had a lot of those ingredients from Gourmet Garden! So, instead of the dry herbs, I just played around with the tubes of herbs adding Cilantro, Parsley and of course Garlic and the outcome was much better than it normally is…the flavor popped!
