Is there a book on the hows, whys and amounts of herbs to use in preparing food? If so where might I find it?

There are many recipes around in current magazines and cookbooks using fresh herbs that will give you an idea of the quantity and types of herbs to use in cooking. It is a good idea to follow a recipe for amounts then adjust after to your own taste. This will prevent over-doing it. My book "Thyme in the Kitchen -- Cooking with Fresh Herbs" is full of delicious recipes as well as how to’s for when to add to foods, how to dry or free herbs, how to make herb vinegars, oils, butter, and more! It is available from Richters (not in bookstores currently). For a preview of the type of recipes include and my herb directory, please visit:
