With our family’s busy lifestyle, it’s not always easy to whip up dinner quickly. So when it comes to ingredients, it’s always good to have them prepared and ready as quickly and easily as possible. We were happy to receive a cooler with 11 ingredients from Gourmet Garden.

Gourmet Garden sells a line of herbs and spices that are washed, chopped, blended and packed fresh into squeezable tubes; and that’s it. No heating, no drying, just refrigeration that keeps their flavor in tact.

Since receiving these tubes, I’ve used them for any dinner that I could. I’ve even used them in some of my recent recipes, such as my classic lasagnaItalian cheese stuffed meatloaf, and classic spaghetti. The herbs add a freshness to the recipes that give that extra flavor!

I’d highly recommend them to anyone who likes to use herbs and spices. Especially when you just need a small amount, then you don’t have a full batch of herbs go to waste.

We are giving away a cooler of 11 herbs and spices just like the one I received to one lucky reader. You can find more of Gourmet Garden herbs and spices at their website.

Entries only accepted on this page. Facebook and Twitter entries do not count. Giveaway will remain open until December 7, 2012 at 10 p.m. CST. The winner will be chosen at random, notified by email and will have 48 hours to respond.

  34. My favorite Italian dish is a tie between pizza and almost any kind of pasta. LOVE pasta! The Gourmet Garden oregano or basil would especially be good with cooked pasta or on pizza, I think.

  35. Favorite Italian – gosh that’s hard because I love Italian food – all of it! Maybe pasta with white clam sauce?

  36. Tavi Greiner

    I have so many favorite Italian dishes, but my favorite is definitely Veal Piccata! (and I LOVE Gourmet Garden Fresh Herbs!)
