It's the new year, and maybe you've already started upgrading your pantry and making changes for the better, or maybe you're still trying to determine what your goals are going to be for 2018. Either way, I'm here to share with you one of my kitchen secrets.
Here's a typical scenario. Someone comes over for dinner and I’m serving broccoli. They wonder, "why in the world is this the BEST broccoli I've ever had?" And I sit there thinking, "I have no clue because all I did was steam it and toss on some seasoning."
Well, I have two secrets. One of which I have already shared with you (olive oil). The second is my spice cabinet. If I were to teach you how to cook, the first two things I would recommend you do is upgrade your olive oil and spice cabinet. It makes a HUGE difference.
Savory Spice Shop is my place. They provide top quality spices at affordable prices AND they have a team of superstars who will help you pick out the perfect seasonings for any occasion. In addition, they offer package deals to get you started on re-vamping your spice cabinet. One of my favorites, pictured below, is called "Keys to the Cupboard." This is the perfect starter kit and is only $41 (or close to it).
Just like organic produce tastes better, using quality spices will absolutely blow your mind. I used to wonder why I had to use SO MANY tablespoons of a spice to get it to taste good. Well, I was using crappy spices. A little bit goes a long way when I use these spices, and they will make your tastebuds dance all meal long :)
No matter what type of cooking you are doing, I highly encourage you to revamp your spice cabinet! If you don't live in Oklahoma City, you can order these spices online and join in on our spice party!
