Weekend Herb Blogging #307-The Roundup

Print Friendly and PDF

Today, I will be out with my family on a hayride and a picnic to enjoy the beautiful fall scenery, so am up early this morning to begin the roundup of some of the most delicious and ingenious dishes from food-loving bloggers scattered over the globe. Find a comfy chair, have a steaming cup of tea or coffee and join me. Before I begin, I would like to thank Haalo who is also host for WHB#308 for her flawless management of this event  created by Kalyn and is now in its sixth year.

Redolent with the heady spices, a nutty hummus delicious
as a dip for fresh vegetables.
