Herb Butter


My husband loves butter and believes it makes everything taste better. He loves it on bread, pasta, vegetables, and pretty much anything I serve for dinner. Other than baking, I tend to reach for the olive oil for all of my cooking needs. Though sometimes I love a great compound butter as a complement to steaks, fish, and even perfectly steamed green beans. Recently I made a batch of popovers and decided to make some Herb Butter slather on top. I used good quality butter, added garlic, and a mixture of fresh tarragon, chives, and parsley. The butter was so delicious that I started to understand why Brad loves it so much.
