It's nearly time where I live, to start growing herbs and other fun things. Can't wait to put them into my red sauce and soups. Do you have a favorite herb or herbs? Do you grow any?

@Myne: The crock is my favorite way to cook!

@Norma: Glad you love your crock pot! Let me know how you like this:).

@Jemi: I have a yummy spaghetti sauce I make in mine too!

@Happy Whisk: I love fresh herbs! Unfortunately, I don't grow my own. My favorires are basil and rosemary. I should start growing them since buying them fresh is too expensive!

@Talli: I love any kind of chicken and pasta too!
