Herbs de Provence-Give Away!

***Give-Away now closed-the winner was #58 Jean. Thanks everyone!***
Hey everyone! Back in June I wrote about harvesting my lavender, it has dried out nicely and I decided to make some Herbs de Provence. It's great on chicken, potatoes and many other things.
I have a bottle to share, simply leave a comment letting me know you'd like it and I'll 
pick a winner on Monday, August 8th! 

Earl says "ooh la la, I feel so French!"
Good luck and Bon Appetit:@)

  10. I tried to find savory and chervil plants in the spring and had no luck. Of course I'd love that beautiful gift. If I win, will Earl deliver it? I promise not to eat him.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  11. Yes, count me in for your very lovely giveaway. I would love to win this because YOU made it!
    BTW~ speaking of things you have made... I love the zucchini pie and the coconut custard (my favorite pie). They both look impossibly (he-he) good!
    Congratulations for being such an inspiration, I second that!

  13. Lynn, You are a very creative and energetic cook! What I cook from day to day, I won't blog about. Afterall, everyone knows how to make Kraft Mac and cheese! lol I do enjoy baking, however. Your post is timely. I just purchased 8 oz of culinary lavender, and 3 books that talk about how to use it including the making of herbs de Provence. How sweet of you to make some to give away!
    Blessings, Beth

  15. Lynn, That's such a lovely giveaway and your lavender is beautiful. Please put my name in the pot for the giveaway. Just looking at Earl with the wine glass and moustache...giggle. He's such a jambon.(ham)

  34. Hello.
    I'm visiting from Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.

    My wife's the cook in the family and she & I both love lavender. It's such a soothing scent and of course it's purple, which is one of my favorite colors.

    Thanks for sharing.

  35. pick me pick me.. :) much easier to win than make my own...
    I dont know how to say that in French though :)

  36. How Id like it?

    Oooo! I may not be able to handle some things very well in the kitchen, but every year at Christmas for the last 5 years I have made duck...and thats how I'd like it - on our duck!!! Using your mix with your culinary Lavender added would be a change up for us - we have never successfully grown the stuff - its always been stunted... You must share your secret to growing it!

    I knew you and I had something more in common ;) - i have been drying my own for years (herbs. kitchen herbs. what were you thinking?lol) Right now I have boxwood oregano growing on the porch along with chives...and I recently found wild catnip out by the pond for Tomez & Isabel! I found that using the "keep warm" setting on my oven dries any herb in a few hours or less, keeping their essence in and keeping their color well- although drying the catnip was a bit overpowering -couldnt get the darn cats away from the oven lol
