    I just never seem to get mine quite right. I've done a spicy (mostly chili powder + other typcial stuff...onion, garlic, cumin) and a garlic herb. But they're my own concoctions and while they taste good I think they could be better. Anyone willing to share their recipes?

    Herbs de Provence is my favorite.

    I buy it already made, but you can make your own.

    Recipe for Herbes de Provence.

    Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon thyme
    1 tablespoon chervil
    1 tablespoon rosemary
    1 tablespoon summer savory
    1 teaspoon lavender
    1 teaspoon tarragon
    1 teaspoon marjoram
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1/2 teaspoon mint
    2 powdered or chopped bay leaves

    Prepartion:
    Mix together all of the ingredients and store in a tightly sealed container.
    Makes about 1/3 cup herb mix.

    After than, I like fresh dill and garlic with a bit of fresh ground black pepper. :D

    I like to use honey & cinnamon, great for breakfast. Also a real nice combo is red onion and dill. It is nice with crackers, veggies or on a baked potato or broiled fish. I sometimes do a garlic and onion and layer it with pesto. Anyway you eat that one is good but tossed with pasta is my favorite

    Hello,

    I mix my chevre with homemade freezer jam. So far I have used strawberry freezer jam and peach freezer jam.
    And then I put the mix on Club crackers. Tastes like a bit of Heaven.
