    Okay folks - need your collective ideas/help!

    We have a TON of rosemary and sage growing in our garden right now. I mean - they're literally overgrowing the space they're in. I'm constantly having to trim them back. I guess it's a positive since they're growing so well...but I need ideas on how to use them up!

    I was wondering if you guys have any yummy ideas to include rosemary or sage into savory goodies? Throw those recipes my way!

    Well, I did just find this recipe online:

    http://scrummylane.com/sun-dried-tomato-parmesan-rosemary-palmiers/

    I've been wanting to make something with sun dried tomatoes since it's getting to that season where tomatoes will be growing here - and it includes rosemary too so it's a bit of a "two birds with one stone" solution!!

    Anyone else have anything to share? :)

    There is always home made dried herbs. This also works well for gifts to people who cook at home a lot. Of course dried herbs can be stored in many different ways and last a lot longer than flavored oils or fresh herbs.

    If you like Italian foods, you can make a LOT of Italian sauces with your fresh herbs and freeze them in heavy duty freezing containers! For me, Italian sauces go with just about anything I eat!!!! MMMMM

    This includes Pesto's, Alfredo's, and olive oil dipping sauces as well.

    And again, home made Italian sauces make super awesome gifts for people who love Italian or for people who cook at lot at home.

    Rosemary and Sage work well in these kinds of dishes:

    Stuffings
    Casseroles
    Quiches
    Baked chicken
    Fried Eggs and Ham
    Scrambeled Eggs and bacon
    Omlettes
    Home made crusty breads/rolls
    Crepes filled with seafood with cream sauce
    Cheese biscuits with herbs
    Make your own croutons
    Cheese logs or balls, rolled in dried herbs

    Hmmm, thats all I can think of this early in the morning.

    @ChesterV all brilliant suggestions! I've made infused oils before and they do seem to be a hit - especially since things like that in stores are just so expensive! They're always in the fancy gourmet sections which seems to just be a reason to make it cost a small fortune!

    I will need to hang some up to dry, too. I really like the picture you shared of the herbs all tied up and drying - it actually looks quite beautiful (and functional, too!)
