*Herbs de Provence is a French herb blend of rosemary, thyme, marjoram, summer savory, basil, sage & tarragon. Of course you can always just add these individually if your grocery store doesn't carry it. : )
I should have warned you guys that it (this recipe) has a lot of ingredients and looks lengthy. But I swear it a snap to make!
