Cooking with rosemary

I love to cook with rosemary this time of year. It’s the herb of friendship, a fragrant, evergreen scent that is so delicious, with so many health benefits, too.

They say rosemary boosts the memory and immunity, it improves your mood, and it relieves pain.

So a sprinkle on an appetizer is alright by me :)

It’s fun to have an appetizer party, too, where everyone brings an appetizer for dinner.

Warm and welcoming, the host provides the drinks, and everyone brings their favorite bite.

No fussy or formal setting, just sit around the table and dig in!

Here’s the theme: We have food to share, let’s sit around and enjoy it.

Give thanks, with no other expectations.
