What Are the Best Herbs to Easily Grow Indoors?

Q: I have a small apartment with large south-facing windows and no outdoor space.

Are there any herbs I'd be able to grow easily indoors? And does anyone have any tips to be more successful?

Editor: Lisa, this is a great question. I personally think that chives are a great, easy thing to grow indoors; just seed in small pots and (although they are a perennial when grown outdoors) keep reseeding in separate pots so you always have them growing.
