  1. Rubbed this generously on some boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets and then sauteed them in olive oil. SO GOOD. Made it with whole carrots tossed in olive oil, ground ginger, and cumin and then roasted. Also with some jasmine rice that had been toasted in cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, and garlic and added in a bay leaf. Squeezed fresh lime over everything - amazing. Will definitely use this seasoning mix again.
  2. Perfect combination of flavors! I used this for Recipe#186805 and it was very good in that! Made due to Sydney Mike's recommendation.
  3. Yet another great spice mix (& that includes your marinades!) from this chef! I mixed this up to use on some veggies, & then got carried away & used it sparingly to spice up some burgers I was making! Very, very nice taste (& unual, for me, anyway)! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a bonus recipe for one of my teammates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]
  4. I very seldom buy or make spice mixes, not sure why. But I decided to make this one for the Aus/NZ Recipe swap and I tried it out on baby potatoes and we really liked it, will have to try more spice mixes!
  5. Would this make a good hamburger patty seasoning?


I AM A MARRIED MOTHER OF 3. COOKING IS A PASSION OF MINE. FINE FOOD MARKETS AND GROCERY STORES ARE MY "HANG OUTS". I LOVE THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO END IN LEARNING. I ENJOY THE WHOLE PROCESS OF COOKING, FROM FINDING A NEW RECIPE, GROCERY SHOPPING, EXPERIMENTING -- RIGHT TO THE DINNER TABLE. MY FAMILY APPRECIATES THE EFFORT I PUT INTO MEALS WHICH IS A WONDERFUL REWARD. ~NO PICKY EATERS HERE~ MY CHILDREN'S MINDS ARE OPEN TO ALL TYPES OF FOOD (WHEN IN MEXICO MY YOUNGEST SON ORDERED QUAIL AT A RESTAURANT AND LOVED IT). <img src="">recipe swap 2008 <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Recipe Swap September 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap October 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap November 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap December '08 <img src=""> Recipe Swap January '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap February '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap March '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap April '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap May '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap June '09 AND July '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap August '09 href=""> <img border="0" src="" alt="Web Page Counter"></a> <img style="visibility:hidden;width:0px;height:0px;" border=0 width=0 height=0 src="*xJmx*PTEyMzc5MTY4MjkyNTkmcHQ9MTIzNzkxNzAxNTY3NyZwPTMyMzAwMiZkPW1hcGxvY28mZz*xJnQ9Jm89ZTM*OTQ2YjBkZDAwNDY*ZTg2YzM5MTIzY2E4ZjI5MjY=.gif" /><a href=""><img border=0 src="" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="">Create your own visitor map!</a>
