Chives or shinopraso as we call it in Greece must be really easy to grow. When I bough some last year its roots were wrapped and the grocer told me to keep it in the refrigerator and use it whenever I needed it. When I used the last of it I decided the plant it and to my surprise it grew.
You are an amazin woman Simona. You plant your herbs, make your cheese and then you also bake bread. Your family must be really happy.


ciao Simona,mi sembra di capire che il tuo orto ti riserva delle soddisfazioni con l'erba cipollina ben ambientata, e il pane prodotto con il tuo formaggio, deve essere saporito, ma se ho capito pan per focaccia, passo comunque per lasciarti un saluto, bacio!


I think it's great that you're able to grow this in your own garden. I still dream of having a window box garden one day. Bread sounds delicious!



I'm so glad you've had unexpected success with your herb garden, Simona. Chives are among my favorite aromatics. I'd be thrilled to have a loaf of your bread waiting for me after an over-extended day.

Thanks for sharing it for WHB!

What a lovely name, erba cipollina has in Greek! Thanks for sharing your experience, Ivy. I hope it will contribute to make readers try to grow their own plant. I'll let my husband know what you said :)

Ciao Astro: comprensione perfetta. Grazie del saluto, che ricambio di cuore.

Ciao Paz. Chives don't need a lot of space, so I think they would do well in your box.

My pleasure, Susan. Growing herbs is quite satisfying and even though I am not an assiduous gardener, they seem to be able to handle life well.


Homemade bread, cheese, and chives! The perfect recipe for sure.


You're amazing Simona! I can't get over all the wonderful food you make from scratch. Warm still from the oven that bread would be fantastic!


Chives are easy to grow, and in maybe another year of so you can thin them as they tend to grow very tight. What a great satisfaction to make bread with your own cheese.

Thanks, Joanne.

Ciao Marie. I do love to bake bread. I'll have more bread-baking stories soon.

Ciao Laura. Having my own cheese definitely makes me more open to experiment with it in recipes.

You're welcome.

Ciao Marcellina. It is indeed satisfying to contribute one or more homegrown or homemade ingredients to a dish.
