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.

Cumin-Coriander Pork Rub

A slightly spicy rub that is great on pork. It would also flavor beef well and makes a good gift, too!

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Rating: 4.91 stars

A classic curry-stand recipe. This is not haute cuisine; this is the kind of nuclear-orange tikka masala that you crave when you stumble out of a pub at 2 a.m. I make vast quantities of the sauce at one time, and it freezes very well. I also added much more cayenne pepper than 1 teaspoon, but I give out the recipe like this for people who don't like heat.

Easy Chicken Fajita Marinade

This is a simple fajita marinade that has been bounced around in my family for at least 15 years. It's simple, tasty, easily altered for a twist on the taste, and can be easily prepared in under 15 minutes. Serve with other fajita elements and enjoy! Some ideas: sauteed green bell pepper with white or yellow onions, jalapeno slaw, homemade salsa (tomato or mango), etc.

Chinese 5-spice powder has a proven track record of awesomeness when combined with smoky, caramelized meats. This grilled five spice chicken recipe is a great example.

This is my personal curry recipe that I've ended up developing over the years. It's very versatile - feel free to add any veggies or meats. All the ingredients can be adjusted to fit your preference. Serve over rice or just eat with naan.

Taco-Seasoned Salmon

This is a recipe I created. I wanted Mexican food, but only had the seasoning and fish. I made this to cure my craving, and it was a success. Even my extremely picky daughter-in-law liked it!

My boys and husband love this. Add some corn chips or Cheddar cheese and it is to die for. I have made this for my husband's work and for church functions and it is always a winner.

This is the chili recipe the gang eats at Purdue Boilermaker football games. I always prep and cook the chili the night before and then reheat the next day. This is a combination of many different tomato-based chili recipes. Good luck and enjoy.
