Traci's Adobo Seasoning
This seasoning is used often in Mexican and Filipino dishes; I've recently started mixing my own seasonings.
Berbere (Ethiopian Spice)
For those of you who have difficulty locating berbere in your local grocery store, this recipe is a good substitute that is easy to make. Note that it is quite spicy, so use to taste. This spice combination is used in many Ethiopian dishes including doro wat, an Ethiopian chicken dish.
Easy Garam Masala
This is a quick Garam Masala (Indian spice) mix. Garam Masala is better when made with whole spices that have been roasted and ground, but this is a quick and easy substitute that's pretty good.
Creole Seasoning Blend
This Creole seasoning blend is great for seasoning rice, meats, soups and stews, or anything that needs a flavor boost. Also makes a great gift when placed in a decorative jar with recipe attached.
Dry Ranch Style Seasoning for Dip or Dressing
A dry ranch-style seasoning mix which can be combined with either mayonnaise and buttermilk (for a dressing) or mixed with sour cream, and served as a dip.
Blackened Seasoning Mix
Eight ingredients and you've just made your own salt-free Cajun seasoning mix at home.
Jamaican Curry Powder
An authentic Jamaican curry powder without hot pepper, which should be added separately to any dish. You can also use powdered versions of any of the ingredients, but for better flavor use whole seed. For authentic Jamaican flavor, you will usually add Scotch Bonnet or Habanero peppers to your recipes. However, if you want to add heat directly to the powder, add 2-4 tablespoons cayenne powder to the mix, depending on your taste.
Cajun Spice Mix
This is a mildly hot Cajun spice mix you make yourself with common spices from your pantry. For those who like it hotter, add the optional crushed red pepper. This makes a great oven Cajun hashbrowns!
Taco Seasoning I
Depending on how spicy you and your family like your dishes, use as little or as much as you want.
This is a great recipe to make your own fajita seasoning. No bouillon cubes means this is perfect for vegetarians too! Make up a larger batch and store in an airtight container for future use.
