Thai Spice Blend

I developed this Thai Spice Blend because we love to grill ribs and chicken wings and we like to vary the flavors. Thai is one of my favorite cuisines where it balances hot, sweet, tangy and salty flavors so well. This isn’t a curry spice, but a tasty change...

Cauliflower (Gobi) Paratha

I love these with Red Lentil Dal. It’s my favorite soup and sandwich combo when I need something to spice it up! These can be a little time consuming, but so worth it. When I make them for myself, I just make two at a time to go with...

Madras Curry Powder

The main difference between plain curry powder and Madras Curry Powder is the heat factor. There is no substitute for curry leaves, so just leave them out if you can’t find them. Kashmiri chiles are hard to find, and you really need the heat because that’s what makes this...

Spice Trade Chronicles 9 Arabia

Onward across the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean to the East and Arabia. I like the title “Arabia”, it sounds mystical, something out of a fairy tale, or a Disney movie! When the spice trade began, the route connected Asia, Northeast Africa and Europe. The stories and history...

Za’atar

This is a great Make It YOUR Own spice mix. You can add more sumac if you like it a little more tangy, or more salt if you’re using it on meat. Switch up the herbs with some marjoram instead of thyme. Just brushing a pita bread with olive...

Spicy Korean Burgers and Meatballs

You can make this recipe into burgers or meatballs. I made these burgers with some vege’s I had in the fridge, but you can substitute anything you have. I like buying serrano peppers and key limes because they are “single serving” and they keep better than cutting a large...

Korean Spice Blend

This spice rub has become one of our favorites in my family. It’s awesome sprinkled generously on ribs and chicken wings before grilling. Because it has brown sugar in it, it makes a great dry rub for meats. Our favorites are chicken wings and baby back ribs! Recently, I...

Thai Yellow Curry Paste

I think most people think of Thai Yellow Curry when they think Thai curries. It seems the most popular when I ask around to people’s preferences. I suppose this is because it is the mildest curry. That being said, when you make your own curry, you can add the...
