Book comes in two parts 25% herbs and 75% recipes for those herbs. Total herbs covered 15; total recipes provided 62.

This book is useful and beautiful and is a colorful guide to two of my favorite things, growing herbs and cooking with them. Full page color photos of foods including “Lemon Thyme and Yogurt Cake”, “Mint Mojito” with vodka, “Spicy Steamed Mussels in Coconut Broth”, “Lamb Chops Roasted in Thyme” and many more will inspire you to start cooking right away. There are growing tips on 15 herbs from Lemongrass to Cilantro and Winter Savory and Basil. This book would be a can’t miss hit as a gift to any ...more

5 stars for the "in the garden" section, great information. 3 stars for the "in the kitchen" section, not a lot of simple, easy recipes that I would spend the time preparing.

I enjoyed learning more about how to incorporate herbs from the garden to the table. Lisa Morgan did a great job with Homegrown Herb Garden: A Guide to Growing and Culinary Uses.
