1. Basil

Basil

Basil is one of the easiest herbs you can grow at home and it adds lots of flavor to spaghetti sauce, salad, pasta salad, pesto and even soup.

There are many varieties, including lemon and mint flavors, so youโ€™re sure to find one you love.

Basil grows best in full sun, so your windowsill is the perfect place for it.

2. Rosemary

Rosemary

I love to mix rosemary with garlic and spread it on pork chops before cooking.2

You can also use it to add flavor to chicken or fish, whether you grill or bake it.

Rosemary grows best in full sunshine and it also needs lots of water.

Watch it carefully to be sure the soil doesnโ€™t get too dry or your rosemary stash might die.

Rosemary also makes a great room fragrance.

Gently rub the plant to release its scent.

3. Parsley

Parsley

Parsley has a mild flavor that makes it ideal for a variety of recipes.

Mix it with ricotta cheese and make stuffed pasta shells with it.

Sprinkle fresh parsley on cooked chicken marsala or vegetable pizza.

Parsley adds a yummy bite to salads and dips too.

Parsley is easy to care for, but make sure it doesnโ€™t wilt or it might not bounce back.

Give it some sun each day and water it before the soil gets dry.
