Recently we have been learning about many fantastic ways to use Rosemary Essential Oil in your cooking in place of fresh or dried rosemary. This is especially useful if you're looking through your cupboards and discover you don't have any rosemary on hand. Essential oils have a long shelf life and don't require refrigeration, so having a dedicated spot in your kitchen for your cooking essential oils is a great way to always have them on hand!
This article will feature a fellow food blogger who has a knack for creating unique dishes and taking gorgeous photos of her creations. The recipe she created using Rosemary Essential Oil was featured on her blog and this article will share more about her experience using essential oils in a recipe and also share the link to her post.

Toasted Cashew Carrot Ginger Bisque
Deborah shares her experience of using essential oils in this recipe:
"First of all, a big thank you to Heather for sharing my recipe for Toasted Cashew Carrot Ginger Bisque. I'm a huge rosemary fan and when Heather sent me a sample of her Rosemary Essential Oil, I couldn't wait to start cooking with it.
There is nothing like the aroma that fills your home when you cook with essential oils. It seems to almost dance in the air. I only used a drop or two of rosemary for this recipe, but in the end, I wish I had used a little more as there was only a hint of the rosemary flavor that I love so much, in the finished product.
All in all, it was a positive experience and I will definitely be using more essential oils in my everyday cooking and in the recipes for my blog."
Tip: Since essential oils are highly concentrated, start with a small amount (1 drops per 4 fluid oz of liquid) - you can always add more at the end of the cooking process to enhance the flavour! Also read more about safety precautions.
