The Gallery of Favorites: 20th July The Herb Edition


Alea of Premeditated Leftovers and I want to welcome you to our weekend blog hop; The Gallery of Favorites, a place to share your favorite posts from your own blogs.

Thank you to everyone who shared posts last week. This week Alea and I are featuring three posts about using summer herbs.

In Herbs Around The Home – Lavender, Vicky of Gluten Free, SCD and Veggie shares the history of lavender, as well as recipes for homemade products to care for your home – from antibacterial spray to bug repellant. There are also delicious recipes made with culinary lavender.

In her post, In My Garden: The Joys of Lavender, Nancy of On The Home Front writes about her experience growing, drying and preserving lavender. The easy techniques she uses mean that you can enjoy the scent of summer in your home all year round.

Adrienne of Whole New Mom shares an easy and effective technique to preserve the wonderful abundance of summer herbs for months to come in her post, The Easiest Way to Preserve Herbs.

Although Alea and I both spend a lot of our time writing about food, we  also have many other interests and we know that our readers do as well. The Gallery of Favorites is a place for all bloggers to share their ideas, interests and passions.

Please share your favorite posts with our Gallery of Favorites below. 

Include a link to your actual posts, rather than to your blog. 

Please include a link to one of the hosts in your post if you want to be considered for our weekly feature, either through text or with our button

We hope you will visit some of the other posts that are shared here. It’s a great way to discover new blogs, or a new side to the writers you already know.

The Gallery will remain open until Monday afternoon (early evening in the UK).
