You are probably asking yourself- “Why is a beauty blogger creating a post about herbs?”. Very simply really. I want to play around a little more with lifestyle content and what better way to show you how to save some time in the kitchen to spend more time doing something else? Like playing in makeup? Or a nap. Naps are great.
What is the most time-consuming part of cooking? Yup, you guessed it- prep.
I love cooking with herbs. Freeze dried herbs that are sold in the seasoning aisle are not my friends. They are not as flavorful as fresh herbs, and me having a knack for leaving the caps off the bottle does not help. Growing my own is not a thing, I don’t have a green thumb (fun fact: I spent an entire summer during the 9th grade at a horticulture camp, yet can still murder a pothos, which is supposed to be the easiest plant to grow). I purchase fresh herbs occasionally, but I can’t chop like a chef, and I have no way to properly store the extra, so it ends dries up and gets trashed.
Then Dorot walked in my life.
