Seasoning

Seasoning essential in any cooks repertoire. Without it, food just tastes bland. It’s almost pointless to cook food that lacks flavor, or depth. And if you’re like me and my family, you might enjoy food with a little kick. If that’s the case, you may want to check out some of my seasonings blends. For example, my Spicy Dry Rub Seasoning is perfect on slow-cooked pork. Or my Santa Maria Dry Rub, which is the only seasoning I use on Tri-Tip.

If Middle Eastern cuisine is more your speed, you may want to try my Middle Eastern Zaatar Spice Blend or My Egyptian Dukkah Blend. But my most popular blend by far has been my Corned Beef Packet Recipe. It nearly doubled my site traffic the week of St. Patrick’s Day, and is still seeing a lot of action!

Say hello to my new favorite spice blend, known as “dukkah” or “duqqa.” Although it’s a Middle Eastern spice, it was my sister-in-law, Alison, who introduced me to it.
