Herbs and Spices Oven Roasted Potatoes

June 10:  Herbs and Spices Day

Islander’s daddy studied horticulture in college before joining the U.S. Navy and becoming a chef. Unfortunately, she did not inherit his talent for gardening but she grew interested in his culinary skills. Although Islander is clueless about maintaining an herb garden, she is crazy about organizing her spice rack. Those who do not have a green thumb like her can conveniently reach out for the seasonings on their shelves and sprinkle them on their favorite foods for fabulous flavor.  Our blog recipe post features such capped condiments in an aromatic side dish—herbs and spices oven roasted potatoes—for Herbs and Spices Day.
