  1. Everything I always have on hand anyway. This is much more economical than buying italian seasoning. Great in spaghetti and pizza sauces.
  2. Love this and it was so easy to put together and I had all the spices. Definately don't need to go to the store and buy the mix anymore. Thank you. Made for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #86 tag game.
  3. This worked out perfect for me. I have all the seperate spices on hand from my garden that I dry for the winter months. I blended them together in a glass spaghetti sauce jar and it was used today making soup. I love fresh herbs and spices and this is so much more economical than buying it. It also makes it perfect for seasoning as I now can pull out this one jar for so many recipes as opposed to 4-6 jars to measure and blend. Thanks Peter for the recipe and the measurements needed.
  4. This is a must have in my kitchen. I've used it already so many times and I can't believe what a big change is from flavoring the dishes just with basil and oregano.I couldn't find sage at the store ,but it worked fine without it. I'll always keep a jar of this mix.Thanks for sharing.
  5. This worked perfectly in the "ricotta cheese" I made with macadamia nuts.


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
