    While mainly a book of recipes of blends, the Introduction also contains good information on drying your own fresh herbs, seeds, and freezing fresh herb; as well as helpful information on storing herb mixtures. An added bonus is are helpful suggestions on packaging blends for gifts. There are recipes for appetizers, butters, dressings, no-salt blends, meat, seafood,traditional blends such as Italian, Pumpkin pie spice, bread and dessert blends; and some “not so traditional” such as “Wassail Spice Mix”, for a punch. I especially like this book because after each formula there are suggested uses and a recipe using the blend. Each page also has a little history about where the blend comes from. Good Book!

    Most people are a bit timid about trying new spices or blends in their cooking. The great thing about this book is that it gives you not only the directions to make your own blend (thus saving you lots of money!) but suggestions on how and when to use them. This is a must have for the timid cook to those that experiment with their own blends! It gives great suggestions and has a wonderful variety.

    This is one of the best books I’ve seen on herbal cooking blends. It starts at the point of getting your herbs–from how to dry fresh herbs and store them, through recipes from soup to nuts and enhancing most foods between, as well as teas and other drinks. Ms. Oster gives some background for the people and shops supplying the recipes and encourages you to try your own substitutions and eventually, to make up personal blends to suit your own tastes and needs. Even if you don’t reach that point, there are enough recipes in this book to keep you well supplied with tasty foods and teas for years to come. And as a bonus, there are pages of resource suppliers and labels in the back to provide you with herbs and spices and labels for your own jars of blends. This book is a definite winner to me. Enjoy!
