 My Best Fresh Herb Marinade and Cooking Sauce

Author Notes: My daughter is in love with fresh herbs.. So I thought I would give it a try.. I had bought a few fresh herbs and then had to figure out what to do with them.. This is what I came up with, my husband (who does most of the shopping ) wants to buy more herbs so I can do other things as well.t2sister
