Conversion Tip: How to Convert Quantities for Dried Herbs to Fresh Herbs


When substituting dried herbs for fresh use a generous 1/4 teaspoon ground or 1 teaspoon crumbled for every tablespoon of finely chopped fresh herbs. Experiment with this approximation since the potency of dried herbs will vary.

About Lois

My husband, Don Crawford, and I love to cook. For me, it's more about eating delicious food than the actual cooking. I like to cook mostly because I like to eat, and I like the proud sense of accomplishment when the food I make is appreciated by others. For Don, it's all about presentation. So we make a good team. I'm too impatient to create beautiful presentations (usually), but he sweeps in and takes over so it all turns out great. All our recipes are tried and true!
