We have a few flowers blooming in the yard, but I don’t feel right picking them when they are still working hard to grow. At the store this morning, I saw they had wildflower bouquets with rosemary in them, and I thought to myself- I definitely can do that.
Focaccia is fun to make, because you get to poke it and make the little dimples all over. Its also super delicious from the oven. Soft but a little crispy around the edges from the oil. We have a ton of rosemary growing, so I was able to use very fresh herbs. I based mine on this recipe.
Our living room gets a lot of afternoon summer sun, so its the preferred dough rising area, but its been cloudy lately. So I tucked the dough into the blankets to rise.
I think that the herbs we grow smell the best, but I’m extremely biased. I want to try to make a wreath with all our sage soon.
And here we have the final product. I want to start a petition that the fat chunks of pepper is the only pepper allowed. Its my favorite.
Its super satisfying to eat something you grew yourself. But using homegrown herbs always makes me feel extra fancy. We made these rosemary and honey pecans for some special guys for father’s day. Simple, fancy, tasty, and homegrown gift.
