Italian Herb Blend

It's time for this month's Movies & Munchies choice for this month: Eat, Pray, Love. To join in the fun, join our group, watch the monthly movie and get inspired!

The movie was pretty universally panned on Rotten Tomatoes and I have to agree. I read the book first and hated it (you'll have to wait for that review, because the recipe I'm making will take some experimentation). But, I decided to give the movie a shot anyway and nearly perished from sheer boredom. It was just as insufferable and fake as the book and ridiculously long.

It was not a terribly inspiring movie, so I decided to get inspired by Italy and share my herb blend since I am using it more and more frequently in recipes.

It’s been a while since I made another homemade seasoning blend.  I have a few of my standbys that I use all the time.  More and more I see Italian Herbs showing up in recipes.  I usually toss some basil and oregano in instead, but decided it was high time I looked into making my own blend (since I still get cranky about buying it - silly, I know).

This blend was easy peasy and included herbs  I consistently keep on hand.  Since I had an empty spice jar, this one is going to have a permanent place on my spice rack!

  3. I tend to use Italian Herb Spice quite a lot. Will be giving this homemade one a try instead of buying ready made. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  4. Love an Italian spice mix but somehow never thought to make my own. That will be remedied now!

  5. I did like the film better than the
