Which Herbs Spices for Which Foods

Lillian Reed, Kirkland, WA, typed the 685,000 words from the eighth edition of this book, plus addenda, onto computer disks for me so I'd have an easier time revising and expanding it for this ninth edition. As she neared the end of half a year of hard work, I invited her to add something she had created herself to the book—something that would help people. She brought me this!
