herb loves and hates

I love marjoram, rosemay, thyme. I dislike tarragon and fennel. Funny I like licorice, but fennel yutz! I like oregano and basil and herbs de napa. I use marjoram in many egg dishes or when i stuff onions or zucchini, rosemay always with chicken and pork...How about you?

kadesma, no finnochio? you're lying, i'll bet your nose is growing, lol. you can't make a good sweet italian sausage without fennel (finnochio)....
i love thyme and rosemary, savory, oregano, parsley, cilantro, coriander, laurus nobilis (bay leaves), caraway, sweet basil, thai basil, dill...
can't think of any more right now.

The only seasoning that I have found that I don't like is, cumin.

sage is my absolute favorite flavor and scent out there.
i also like oregano. i douse pepper into most things.

i don't like cinnamon.i don't like tyme due only to the fact that if it's not ground, it has those little 'twigs' in it.

luvs, I like thyme, but always buy fresh, know what you mean about "twigs" I might try em if i was a beaver I use a lot of fresh ground pepper too, it helps me cut down on salt.

I wish I liked cilantro. So many dishes are made with it that I'm sure I'd enjoy more. I don't know why I hate it. There must have been something in my past that I associate that nasty flavor with. I wish I knew what that is. Armpits? Mouldy shoes? Dirt?

The strange thing is I love curly parsley. Dip a bunch into tempura batter and fry till crispy and I'm in heaven.

Just above the window where I'm now typing are the selections for Font colour: and Font size. You need to place the text between the tags the pop up when you click on your choice.

I've changed [ to ( for this example.

(color=red](/color] This is how the color change looks. You place the text between the two tags like this: (color=red] Your text here will be red (/color]

If you want to change both size and color, you need to place the text like this:

[color=red] (size=24] HUGE red text here (/size] (/color]

Haven't found an easy way to do this. I end up cutting and pasting the tags. I first put spaces between the tags so it's easier to cut and paste.

I absolutely love the flavors of Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Chives, Dill, Parsley....some say it doesn't have a real flavor but I think it does, Sage, and Oregano.

I can't say for sure if I like Cumin or Curry as I've never had a real dish that focused on these flavors. I think Chili has one or maybe both in it.....but I mainly taste the chili powder when eating it.

I really don't care for Cilantro either......tried it numerous times and really just catch get my palate to except it. I hear the chefs saying in place of it substitute Italian Parsley so thats what I do.
