Worthy of Sharing: Herb Substitution Chart

My mom and I are both allergic to rosemary and she found a recipe she really wanted to replicate which included it. She called me to see what I would substitute for it. I usually just skip it because it has been so long since I have eaten it I am not even sure what it taste like. I went searching and found this great chart. It’s perfect for when you are missing an ingredient and don’t have time or money to go buy it. Simply substitute it!
