Recipes - Boursin Blend

This French-themed blend can be mixed with cream cheese, goat cheese or even cottage cheese.  Use 1 teaspoon for 8 ounces of soft cheese.  For added fun, form the cheese into a ball or log and roll in additional Boursin Blend to make a guest worthy cheese ball.

How it all started

I started growing herbs in 1994. I love the scents, the shades of green, and the scent and texture of the leaves. I love everything about them!

My first herb garden resulted from my need for good tea herbs. To this day, tea is among my favorite creations.

My husband does not use salt or preservatives, as a result all my seasonings and mixes, are all salt free, organic and preservative free.

Commonly asked Questions


Do you use preservatives?

All of our blends are created with no preservatives, flavor enhancers or anti-clumping agents.

We grow our herbs organically, no chemical fertilizers, no pesticides and only organic methods.  The herbs are grown in "hills" placed in rows.  This allows us to walk among the plants but keep a high-quality soil and easy watering methods that makes plants drought resistant.

Are your items salt and gluten-free?

All our herb blends are crafted with no salt and no gluten. Our baking mixes will be clearly marked if they are gluten-free, but all will be low salt. However, since we make all the blends ourselves if you wish no salt in a baking mix (scones, breads, etc.) just ask and we will blend them without salt.

How and where do you ship?

Due to restrictions on plant materials, we only ship to the US or US territories. NO international orders are accepted. All items can be shipped either UPS or USPS depending on weight.

Where do your herbs come from?

We grow almost all of the herbs we use in our blends at our 3/4 acre herb garden. We have been growing herbs since 1994 and created our garden space in 1998 growing our herbs production style in hills and rows.
