Transform dinner into a meal that satisfies your hunger and your soul. These homemade seasoning blend recipes will add mad flavor to everything you cook.
Day-to-day cooking can be a total drag when you are busy. If you're anything like me, you'd probably rather be doing many 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???

More Seasoning Blend Recipes
I've amassed a collection of spice blend recipes over the years, and I use them all the time. Having homemade spice blends in your pantry saves you a ton of time in the kitchen. I will continue to add spice blends as I get them posted.
Having a good BBQ rub in your kitchen is essential. This recipe can be used on everything from BBQ Ribs to Smoked Pork Shoulder and everything in between.
For a quick and easy dinner, sprinkle a few tablespoons of barbecue seasoning on chicken breasts or thighs before grilling. You can make a succulent Roasted Pork Tenderloin. BBQ rub is also a great way to season roasted sweet potatoes, homemade fries, or sweet potato fries.
Buffalo Seasoning Blend
This spice blend might be the one I use the most. It adds instant buffalo flavor to everything from chicken to shrimp. A few teaspoons of this spice blend make chicken wow-tastic. It's as easy as sprinkling on this spice blend and then baking, pan-searing, or grilling your favorite protein.
I recommend serving chicken or shrimp with extra Franks Red Hot Sauce and a side of Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing. I also use this spice blend to make several appetizer recipes, including my Buffalo Shrimp Poppers, Buffalo Chicken Dip, and Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls.
