How much spice is in your life ?

For many of us when it comes to seasoning our food salt and pepper is what we first think of. Sure they are usually sitting on the table so we instinctively reach for them. The problem though is that there is a world of spices out there that can turn an ordinary meal into a masterpiece with little effort on our part, as long as we understand what spices we are planning to use.

With the weakened economy more and more families are staying at home these days and preparing their own meals. This is not a bad thing, but it also brings us to a good point. By adding a few different spices to your everyday meals you can change the flavor of your meal plus enjoy the satisfaction of creating your very own special dish. So you are standing in your kitchen asking yourself what spices would be best, remember you don't have to go crazy just try some simple things such as adding sesame seeds to your broccoli, a little cajun seasoning in your rice or add some roasted garlic with fresh chives to your
potatoes. You can roast your own garlic or purchase roasted garlic granules.The idea is to not be afraid to experiment with different spices and ideas. There are a lot of great sources for recipes on the net or in your favorite bookstore to help you.
