It is always a pleasure to host Weekend Herb Blogging. This week was edition #288, and I got lots of submissions from around the globe.

Without further ado, here are everyone’s fabulous creations…

I used my homegrown radishes along with carrots and green garlic in these very yummy refrigerator pickles:

Kirsten blogs at From Kirsten’s Kitchen to Yours in Santa Monica and she shared her protein-rich and very tasty looking White Bean and Andouille Soup with Cilantro:

Eve at Garden of Eating in Woodstock, NY (hey! we’re practically neighbors!) shared her recipe for Roasted New Potatoes with Fresh Rosemary and Sea Salt made with her homegrown rosemary:

Stash from The Spamwise Chronicles in NYC created a couple of fabulous salads, including this one featuring lamb’s quarters and tomatoes:

Chris from MeleCotte in Atlanta, GA cooked up a wonderful fresh tomato sauce recipe:

Johanna at Green Gourmet Giraffe (in Australia) posted an update about her lovely garden and sent in this Cauliflower, Potato and Kale Pesto Mash:

Rachel from The Crispy Cook foraged in the woods and came up with these tasty Sauteed Oyster Mushrooms.

Graziana from Italy submitted her very tasty looking Chicken in Sorrel Sauce

Cinzia (also from from Italy) blogs at Cindystar and made gorgeous Cherries in Kirsch:

Marija from Palachinka also chose to preserve stunning cherries, but used grappa instead in her Grappa Cherry Preserves.

Janet from The Taste Space in Canada created these wholesome and yummy looking Maca Chip Raw Energy Balls while training for a bike race:

Haalo from Cook Almost Anything (also in Australia) used an ingredient unfamiliar to me- strawberry gum (forest berry herb)- in this beautiful spiced apple tart:

Joanne from Eats Well with Others in NYC submitted her amazingly delicious looking Carrot Cake Cookies:

Sue (our third participant from Australia) writes the blog You Can Do It… At Home and sent in her Toasted Coconut Pandan Macarons. I’ve never seen pandan leaves here, but these look great:

Shaheen lives in Scotland and blogs at Allotment2Kitchen; she shared this terrific looking Lemon Thyme Almond Tart:

And last but not least, Lynn from Georgia and the blog Cafe Lynnylu submitted her lovely Blackberry Crisp with Blackberry Frozen Yogurt:

Many thanks to everyone for participating in WHB #288. For more information about WHB, here are the rules; p.s. Chris is hosting this week.

    How about if I hosted food bloggers this week and they helped themselves to my herbs…isn’t that herb blogging? :)

    I have such an abundance of herbs and use them a lot; I would love to participate sometime…these all look delightful.

    Winnie, I love the idea of this post! So many great recipes using herbs. It is essential that I create a planter with fresh herbs as I always buy them. Bad me ;)
