Do you like cilantro? It's my favorite herb by far, and I love it because it's capable of totally perking up almost any food, both in flavor and appearance. If you're a cilantro hater, though, you're definitely not alone. According to The New York Times, many people's aversion to cilantro may be due to the fragrance of certain substances in the herb that are also found in soap and bugs. (Make sure to read through until the end of the article, when the author describes how he converted himself into a cilantro lover. Here's one hint: this recipe of mine might be a good place to start.)
For this month's Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned the blog Angels Homestead. It's written by April, a mom, homesteader, and frugal cooking expert who was the owner of the SRC for several years. April recently began cooking without grains for health reasons, and you can read a bit about her story here. Everything I make is grain free, so I was excited to find many recipes on April's site that fit my dietary requirements. I was also excited to find several recipes featuring cilantro, my go-to herb. I can only assume that April must be a fellow cilantro fan!
