According to an article on the Food Network, herbs can be used in all sorts of dishes. Their recommendation:
Delicate herbs such as basil, parsley, chives, dill weed and coriander are generally chopped, snipped or torn and added at the end of cooking to maximize their flavor impact. Heartier herbs like thyme, oregano and rosemary can be added earlier in the cooking process to allow their flavors to completely infuse your dish. These are often added whole and removed before serving.
And for those non-fancy pants folks, coriander is also called cilantro!
