Spice Simply is designed as an informational site that provides easy ways to add spice to your cooking and your life.

Do you know the difference between herbs and spices?

Traditionally, herbs were defined as the leafy parts of low growing shrubs (such as oregano, basil, rosemary, etc...) whereas spices came from buds, seeds, fruit, tree bark, roots or flowers of plants (cloves, cinnamon, saffron, ginger, etc...).

Today, the terms are sometimes interchangeable with a spice being defined as any dried plant product used to season and enhance the taste of food. However, for culinary use, these terms are often differentiated as herbs (from the leafy green parts of a plant) and spices (from other parts of the plant).

Since in my humble opinion, all herbs and spices are great, this website will use the broader and more inclusive definition of spice.
