I had the honor to be the hostess of last week’s Weekend Herb Blogging, a weekly event founded by Kalyn from Kalyn’s Kitchen.

To write a roundup is always a very time-consuming task for me, in English even more. But it’s a duty I love to do, especially when I can list such great entries. Thanks to all participants.


Some blogger think I’m a clairvoyant. They did not send me an email with a link to their entry (or I did not receive it). I found them anyway, perhaps not all. If your entry is missing on the roundup – my clairvoyant skills are not yet fully developed ;-) – please send me an email (kochtopf(at)gmail(dot)com) with the link to your entry. I will add your entry immediately.
