Well seasoned food can transform a meal from something that you just eat into a meal that not only satisfies your hunger but also satisfies your soul. If you've ever tried to spice up a dish only to be disappointed in the results, let me help! Cooking doesn't have to be hard at all.
Day-to-day cooking can be a total drag when you are busy. I know if you're anything like me, you'd probably rather be doing a million other things.
Luckily, I have the perfect solution! Seasoning Blends. Homemade seasoning blends are the easiest way to make a flavorful and delicious dinner in no time.
A Well-Stocked Spice Cabinet
I also recently set up a magnetic spice rack by Gneiss that mounts to the inside of my spice cabinet. I am in love with it! It saves a ton of space, keeps all of my spices organized, and I can store all of my homemade spice blends right along with my bulk spices.
Basic Dried Spices
- cayenne pepper
- chili powder
- crushed red pepper
- dry mustard
- garlic granules
- onion granules
- paprika - sweet
- paprika - smoked
- sesame seeds
Fancier Spices to Keep in the Pantry
- cardamom pods
- star anise
- whole allspice
I have had a few requests to see my Gneiss Spice Rack.
Here you go! Isn't it pretty???

I am currently working on writing a post for each of my seasoning blends. Until they are done, you can download a printable with all of my seasoning blends.
