A friend of ours recently confessed that she loves rosemary, but finds that it overpowers most dishes. We totally agree. But when a recipe gets the balance just right, that fresh pine-y rosemary flavor really sings. In her honor, here are a few favorite ways to use this aromatic and surprisingly versatile herb. We find that rosemary often does best when it gets to be the star. Even so, using it requires a careful hand so that its piney pungency stays balanced instead of tipping into bitterness. THE SAVORY SIDETotally Tender Meatballs with Rosemary from The Kitchn - This is our favorite meatball recipe, thanks in large part to the balance of rosemary and garlic. • Garlic and Herb Roast Tenderloin from The Kitchn - Rosemary holds up to roasting very well, plus pairing it with pork is magical. • Crisp Rosemary Flatbread from Gourmet - The combination of crackling hot bread, olive oil, and rosemary is impossible resist. • White Beans with Tomatoes and Rosemary from Martha Stewart - Just imagining this rosemary-infused dish is making our mouths water. • Root Vegetable and Mushroom Pie with Rosemary Biscuit Topping from Epicurious - Ultimate winter comfort food. THE SWEET SIDERosemary-Walnut Brown Butter Cookies from The Kitchn - Brown butter tempers the strong rosemary flavor for the perfect treat. • Buttermilk Rosemary Ice Cream from the Kitchn - We love the tanginess of the buttermilk against the soft rosemary in this recipe. • Orange Rosemary Scones from Food & Wine - These make the house smell so good! • Rosemary Olive Oil Cake from 101 Cookbooks - A slice of this sounds like a good afternoon snack. • Green Grapes Sautéd in Honey and Rosemary with Almonds from Saveur - Served over vanilla ice cream, this dish is the perfect end to a holiday dinner party.
