What is Boursin? We’ve all had the Boursin brand in grocery stores, right?  I remember a few years back buy a sample pack at Costco to use during the holiday season.  The trio set didn’t make it through Thanksgiving we loved it so much.  I had to buy another pack for Christmas and New Year.  That is when I got creative and decided to make my own version of this spread.

Growing Your Own Fresh Herb

My herb garden is all over my home and garden.  There is no wonder I whipped up this fresh herb cheese recipe often. I grow herbs inside under lights (the legal kind), in my 20′ geodesic bio dome, in containers, raised beds and directly in the ground outside.  Below are a few post on my site featuring ways to grow herbs in home and garden.  Be sure to check them out and leave comments telling me what you think!
