Spicing Things Up & Sharing My New Secret!

I've never been much of a spice snob...matter of fact, I usually stick to very basic spices & don't care too much what brand or quality they are...but my ways are beginning to change.
I've been working very hard at trying to create better quality meals for my family. We're trying to eliminate many processed & packaged foods from our diet. I'm glad we're doing this, but it can be challenging & TIME consuming to make things from SCRATCH, anybody follow me here?!
Welllll, recently I found this recipe for Homemade Chili & Taco Seasoning from My Baking Addiction. It was perfect! Quick & simple & made enough for multiple uses! But what I liked most is that I knew what ingredients were in it...and it tasted FANTASTIC!  It had the kick of a Medium packet of Chili Seasoning... I prefer a more mild seasoning so I may adjust the cayenne pepper next time, but I am REALLY happy with this recipe!
Tomorrow I'll share my Simple & Satisfying Chili Recipe! It's actually my mother-in-law's recipe...but it's made with this homemade chili seasoning :) It's super!

Happy Cooking, Everyone!!

*Oh, one more thing!! Don't forget to check out THIS WEEK'S GIVE-AWAY  in honor of our blog-launch!!!
I made 2 pretty somethings for 2 very lucky people!! I'd love for you to enter!

If you do, stop by again & say Hey!


  1. Awesome! Thanks for sharing this! I love making things from scratch, but don't do it as much as I should.

  2. YAY! Can't wait to try the recipe. You know...since we BOTH are trying to change the way we eat. How it Paleo going for you all??

  3. Never really thought about making my own Chili/Taco Seasoning, but I am going to give it a try! Thanks!

  4. I try to make all our taco and ranch seasoning--I should branch out though!

  5. I have never made my own, but you have inspired me! My hubs is allergic to onion, so this would be perfect!

    Take care,
