I like the idea of the two sub-forums. I also like the idea of a sub-forum about spice blends, as I "dabble" in custom-formulated blends. However, I also agree that such a forum wouldn't see much traffic.

YT, That could be as easy as a link. Otherwise, someone eould have to write that history into a post.

There wouldn't be a double post though - and it was purely a joke anyway. People aren't going to take the time to post in the proper forum and put a link ONLY in a post in the Herb and Spice Forum.

When searching it is VERY helpful to have the name of the recipe in the title - otherwise people are searching through posts with no mention of the recipe they are looking for in the title, or where they are in the thread. They just have to basically search through each post.

Recipes where the herb or spice is the predominant ingredient...? I'm thinking pesto, garam masala, etc....

I like the idea of a form on growing, drying and using herbs and spices. I think I am like everyone else and get into a rut using same spices all the time. I would think showing the use of common spices in unusual ways, or in different regional ways would be very helpful in helping us tweak our day to day menus.

Here's my two bits...
1. Forum on growing and preserving herbs
2. Forum listing herbs and typical uses...should be like a chart that we could use for reference. This could be a sub-forum under Forum #1.
3. Forum on using herbs, including recipes for which the herb is the main ingredient
4. Forum on using non-herb seasoning items, such as garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, assorted oils, etc.

sometimes I'm not sure the best way to cut my herbs when i want to use them..so maybe a section on harvesting? or maybe that would be under growing?

I agree with kadesma. Could end up with too many recipes and the pertinent information could really get lost.

What about a help forum or something in case some-one's used a little too much of a certain spice/herb and wants to know how to tone it down so to speak with-out having to trash the whole dish and start over again. I didn't see anything on this particular area (or maybe I missed seeing it) and thought I'd mention this.
