All too often I buy a couple bunches of herbs to use in a specific recipe, punch off a sprig or two, and then the rest gets forgotten about until it wilts and has to be tossed. Does this happen to you?

I hate wasting any food, especially fresh herbs, but it turns out I don’t have to: There actually are a slew of great recipes that use way more than a few sprigs, saving me the guilt of throwing what’s leftover in the trash (with the bonus of a delicious dish!).

From rosemary roasted potatoes and lemon-thyme chicken thighs, to tomato-basil morning muffins and a tropical cilantro smoothie, here are 25 recipes to call on when you’ve got herbs to spare.

This side dish is so smoky and fragrant, you may find yourself pushing aside the main course so that you can focus your attention on it. Smoked paprika not only lends its intense flavor to the couscous, but it also adds color, creating the most beautiful golden hue. Toasted sliced almonds add textural crunch to the dish (something that is all too often missing in plain ol’ couscous), and a slew of chopped fresh parsley brings its pop of green freshness to the equation. Enjoy this as a bed for roast chicken, grilled steak, or even just a pile of juicy roasted vegetables for a simple, satisfying meal.

You love spinach-artichoke dip and you love mac and cheese, so it only makes sense that these two crowd-pleasers come together to make this luxurious weeknight dinner. If you think each one is amazing on its own, you haven’t lived until you’ve experienced this dip-meets-dinner mash-up. With four (yes, four!) cheeses, a double dose of veggies, tender pasta, and a single pot, it doesn’t get much better than this easy-fancy mac and cheese.

If pork chops are a regular player in your meal plan rotation, you’re going to love this dinner. It’s a fancied-up throwback inspired by the Shake’N Bake pork chops of the ’80s and ’90s. This version gets an upgrade from panko in place of regular breadcrumbs, plus the addition of grated Parmesan. Along with smoky spices and a hit of garlic, these sheet pan pork chops are an easy way to bring an old friend back to the dinner table with a few new tricks.

The kitchen garbage is most likely the smelliest thing in your household. (If it’s not, there might be a bigger problem at hand.) And that makes total sense when you think about what’s in there. “Even something as innocent as leftover veggie trimmings can surprise you with a stench in the morning!” says Becky Rapinchuk, the blogger behind Clean Mama.

Ideally you’re taking out the full — or close-to-full — bag every few days for garbage pick-up or general safe-keeping, but smells can still find a way to permeate the air in the days between.

Your garbage is never gonna smell like roses, but it doesn’t have to be totally offensive. Here are some things you can do for a better-smelling kitchen trash.

After living in Italy for a bit, I quickly became enamored of olive oil. I have two bottles in my pantry that I reach for every single night. My constant use is a case for moving back to Italy, buying an olive farm, and making my own supply just to support the habit.

Because that’s not happening anytime soon, I’ll continue to lean on my local grocers to supply it for me, and I’ll continue to always have two bottles. While I am a minimalist in most regards, I feel strongly that one olive oil is not enough.

I have my large bottle of everyday cooking oil (this is my favorite), which never breaks the bank and gets swirled into hot pans, tossed with roasted vegetables, and baked into cakes. My second bottle is smaller and a splurge, used for dunking bread and finishing salads, soups, and more. It’s something I firmly believe should be in your pantry too.
