Our gardens are in full swing and one of my favorite summer vegetables is eggplant! There are infinite ways to cook this tasty aubergine. In Greece, it is beloved and on every menu in at least three to five different preparations. I have only two varieties in my garden, however the farmers' markets are brimming over with eggplants in every color and shape. Enjoy them now!

About two weeks ago, I blogged about Herbal Blends and an upcoming event to be held at the USBG. At that time I promised you a recipe using an herbal blend. Since then I have been to Greece and back and am finally posting the recipe for you.

I will report on the vegetative wonders on the isle of Syros next, however first I want to post the recipe for Cream Cheese with Herbes de Provence and Garlic and tell you about the awesome exhibit at our national botanic garden.
