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 rosemary leaves

2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves

4 cloves fresh garlic

2 tsp kosher salt

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.


Substitute for ordinary oil in salad dressing

Marinade for grilled veggies, seafood, and meat

Toss with pasta for a delicious side dish

Stir-fry with peppers and onions

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


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
