Herbes de Provence are a traditional summertime blend of 11 different herbs, give or take — depending on whose recipe you use. Herbes de Provence are readily available at most specialty food stores, but if you're not near one of those infernal places, you can always mix up a batch yourself.

And you really should keep some Herbes de Provence on hand. They're marvelous for seasoning everything from grilled chicken to salad dressing — even pizza. For instance, check out these Sautéed Mushooms Provençal. Could anything be more simple?

By the way, one of those 11 supposed herbs is actually a spice. Can you guess which one? To make things even more tricky, there are two answers that could reasonably be considered correct, so be sure to state your case along with your answer. You'll at least get partial credit! In the meantime, here's the recipe for making your own Herbes de Provence.
