My friend Cheri made a version of this oil one weekend as a delicious part of a girls weekend breakfast. It’s herbaceousness with just a touch of saltiness is so incredibly tasty. It’s perfect drizzled atop a plate of toast, fresh greens, and a fried egg, but it’s uses are endless. It also makes a great homemade hostess gift.

2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves

4 cloves fresh garlic

2 cups extra virgin olive oil

Place herbs, garlic, and salt in a food processor. Pour in a splash of the olive oil. Puree until all ingredients are finely minced. Stir puree into remaining olive oil and pour mixture into a covered container. Keep in refrigerator.

Toss with pasta for a delicious side dish

Perfect for a hostess, teacher, or favorite foodie friend gift


Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
