  2. yummyyyy, i think I will love cheesy tomato, garlic and onion pasta sauce..

  3. Hi Margot,
    I returned from holidays and finally tried the herbal pepper you gave me. It’s a fantastic mix and very aromatic. If you want to see the pictures they’re on my blog http://tertuliadesabores.blogs.sapo.pt . I made a very simple recipe with vegetables and cuscus, but next time I will cook it with chicken.
    I followed your instructions and put herbal pepper at the end of cooking, but could it be possible making a marinade for chicken and then cook it?
    Regards from Lisbon

  4. Thank you for the comments :)

    Moira – I’m glad you like the pepper, and yes, you can use it for marinade as well… it is just more aromatic, when added towards the end. So when I use it like you, for marinade, I usually just add some more at the end again if the flavours fade too much.

  5. This really does look soul soothing. Love the great flavors!
