Introduction
It’s always a good time to rediscover the age-old comfort of cookies. Try
conjuring an image more comforting than a warm kitchen, infused with the
scents of sweet vanilla, fragrant cinnamon, and fresh butter, and, on the kitchen
counter, a cooling rack piled high with fresh-from-the-oven delights studded
with chocolate chips and crunchy pecans. It is a cause for celebration in itself—
even more so when the cookie recipe is as quick and convenient as opening a
package of cake mix.
That’s right—cake mix. A standard 18.25-ounce package of cake mix is the
secret to a wealth of homemade cookies. Even better, the results are assuredly
irresistible. A package of cake mix gives home bakers the same head start for
baking cookies as for baking cakes. Cake mix simplifies steps and ingredients
and offers insurance (in the form of accurately premeasured and mixed flour,
sugar, and leavening) that the time spent baking will lead to sweet success time
and again. With a few extra ingredients, turns of the spoon, and whirs of the
mixer, cake mix can make any home cook a prize cookie baker.
And oh, what cookies to choose from! You may have come across a handful
of cake mix cookie recipes here and there, but never a collection as extensive as
this. Turn the pages and you’ll find an enticing array of cookie options: think
easy-as-can-be drop cookies, made from spoonfuls of dough dropped onto a
cookie sheet; formed, fancy, and filled cookies, that are either shaped into balls,
rolled and cut into fun shapes, or filled with jams, candies, and other treasures;
and blissful bar cookies, baked with ease in square or rectangular baking pans,
then cut into handheld pieces. They’re all here, and they’re all scrumptious,
satisfying, simple to make, and pretty to serve.

Quite a few all-American favorites can be found throughout the book:
Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Nutty Jam Thumbprints, and
Dark Chocolate Brownies are but a few. New takes on classic European cookies
are also well-represented, including crunchy Italian biscotti, tender French
madeleines, and rich Viennese teacakes.
Finally, a hearty helping of serendipity is stirred up to create a host of modern
cookie options, guaranteed to tempt one and all, and destined to become classics
in their own right. How about a Giant Cookie Pizza for your next birthday party?
Or Granola Chocolate Chunkers or Fresh Berry Cheesecake Bars for a picnic at
the park? How about a holiday cookie plate filled to overflowing with White
Chocolate Cranberry Bars, Caramel-Macchiato Thumbprints, Spumoni Chunk
Cookies, and Crushed Peppermint Snowballs? And why not surprise (and thrill)
your family on a busy weekday morning with healthy Whole Wheat Pumpkin
Breakfast Cookies or Chocolate-Nut Power Bars? This is the stuff of which
sweet dreams are made.
Once the cookie baking commences, one thing will immediately become selfevident:
each and every cookie in this collection will lead home bakers—and the
lucky recipients of their efforts—straight to the comfort zone. So why wait? Don
an apron, grab a bowl, and start mixing up some delicious fun. Be it ever so
humble, there’s no taste like a homemade cookie.

Introduction
There is a certain comfort one comes to feel when growing herbs. Just
knowing that our ancestors grew their own food and herbs links our gardening
endeavors to theirs. Ancient as well as modern-day gardeners trod
the same path, preparing the soil, selecting and sowing seeds, propagating
plants, and praying for sun and rain.
All gardeners have enjoyed the same benefits of growing their own
food. However, an added advantage when growing your own herbs is the
wonderful scent of lavender; the refreshing, cool aroma of mint; or the
delicate taste of chervil…to mention a few. No matter how large or small
your herb garden, foods simply taste better when prepared with fresh
herbs. Yes, many culinary herbs can now be found in the fresh produce
section of the supermarket. However, they pale in taste when compared
with a handful of freshly picked herbs from your very own garden. For that
reason, we want to share with you tips on growing herbs successfully in
a garden, or potted in containers on a patio, or even placed indoors on a
sunny windowsill.
Growing herbs can also be part of a green lifestyle. Stay green, get
green, learn green, be green! What is all this talk about green? Seriously,
isn’t it about time all of mankind started paying attention to what we
are doing to the environment as well as what we are putting into our
bodies? We certainly think so and have thought that way for a very long
time. The body has been very efficiently designed to absorb what is natural.
When you ingest food that has been artificially colored or flavored,
the body becomes disoriented. Blueberries are welcomed, but blueberryflavored
candy? Water is always welcomed into the body, but artificially
flavored water? What do you think the stomach would rather have? Without
becoming too authoritative, we ask you to think green when making
food choices.
Upon reading our book, should you decide to try your hand at gardening,
go as organic as possible. Follow our suggestions and stay green in
your choices. You’ll be glad and your body will be even happier.
In the following pages, we have chosen a number of our favorite culinary
herbs, designing recipes and even whole meals around them. We
have researched each herb to bring you history and lore, along with gardening
and culinary information. We hope you will find the lore and
cooking tips both enlightening and entertaining as you plan your garden
and cultivate new tastes for your kitchen menus. Please read the information
thoroughly before trying a recipe for the first time.
At the end of each chapter, we have left blank pages for you to
record both your garden and kitchen findings. Perhaps you would like
to try the same recipe, only using some different herbs, to create a new
taste. For whatever reason you choose to use them, the blank pages are
there for your convenience and your notes.
It is our sincere desire that you enjoy The Herb Garden Gourmet: Grow
Herbs, Eat Well, and Be Green. There is so much to learn about the world
of herbs! We thank you for inviting us into your cookbook collection
and we hope you will refer to our book often, as you enjoy this fresh and
healthy way to add flavor to your cooking.
—Tim and Jan

has his own eBay Store. Besides writing about eBay
as a regular contributor to the AuctionBytes website

hunter who collects fountain pens, hats, and
watches—several of which he has bought on eBay.

Acknowledgments
It might look like everything in this book came
from me alone. Indeed, nearly all of these tips
came out of what I have learned by selling on
eBay. But I could never have started the project in
the first place, much less have seen it through to
fruition, on my own. I owe a tremendous debt of
gratitude to a multitude of people, including my
agent Lynn Haller of Studio B, who has guided me
to a variety of new opportunities in the past few
years; Bethany Brown of Sourcebooks for being
very easy to work with; my assistant Ann Lindner;
and my eBay friend and mentor Paula Amato, who
has helped me learn by doing.
