Now Herb This!

Let me ask the question? What do you know about herbs? yes, they are plants, and most are green, and we all know that line in the song, "parsely, sage, rosemary, and thyme", and they can be used to really bring a meal together.
but what do we really know about herbs and cooking? And do you know the difference between and herb and a spice?
we know cilantro is good in mexican cooking, and basil is good in italian cooking. we all know how to make sage butter but how do you use it?
I am starting a series. the first part is on cooking with herbs, and the second part is healing with herbs.
