I love the smell in my kitchen every morning when I walk in. Sitting in my window, is a box of herbs that I planted a few months ago. It is full of cilantro, rosemary, sage, basil, dill, chives, parsley, mint, and many other of my favorite herbs.

Did you know that herbs can be used in just about anything these days? Hopefully in this newsletter, you will learn more ways to use herbs than just to snip and place in food. We are going to explore all the ways you can use herbs in your home!

Speaking of herbs, one of the free downloads for Molly Members in our new members program is a vegetable garden encyclopedia with an herb guide! It is a fabulous E-Book that you would love to have as your own!

For those of you that have already joined the Molly Member program, how are you liking it? Do you see any improvements on what we have done? Is there something you would like to see in the future there? Email me if you have any ideas. I would love to hear them!

We have some really great downloads in the members resource section that are just for Molly members. We have links to many menu planning resources, over 10 different coupon site links for you to get downloadable coupons, plus tons of other links that you will enjoy.

We have several different free E-Books for your enjoyment this month as well. In the mix is a grilling E-Book, healthy chicken recipes, gardening encyclopedia with herb guide, a 50-page preview of my slow cooker cookbook, and a special E-Book from my guest blogger, Lisa Barthuly.

That's not even all that you get! There are still a ton of more links that I didn't even mention. PLUS we are going to be adding some Easter links and Spring Break ideas. You will not want to miss this at all!

Each month, there will be new downloads, plus the previous month will still be there (if you subscribed during that month). You get all of this for only $3.95 per month! That is $1.00 less than the price of just the Digest itself, and you get all these extra freebies to boot!

You cannot go wrong with a Molly Membership!

How to Make a Tin Can Herb Pot

Here is a wonderful tutorial I ran across recently that not only gets everyone involved, but it also includes reusing and re-purposing things that would normally get thrown away.

With this tutorial, the kids can help paint and decorate the tin cans, and you can also turn this into a homeschool science project, watching the herbs grow from seedlings to beautiful, wonderful smelling plants.

You can access this tutorial by clicking here to go to Kaboose.
