What are your favorite Herbs?

My favorite herbs would have to be thyme and rosemary. I cook allot of meats though. Maybe that is why. What are your favorite herbs?

I grow & use many, but the fresh herbs I use most often would be Italian flat-leaf parsley, cilantro, basil, & thyme. Dried would be oregano.

My thoughts exactly! I love the smell of basil, it's something I buy every week!

Other favs are mint, rosemary, thyme and flat leaf parsley.

Suziquzie - if you like lemon basil, you should give lime basil a try. It's a new favorite of mine.
