Adding spices to your meals can enhance the flavor of simple foods and can add health benefits as well. I recently stumbled upon Savory Spice Shop in the Arboretum shopping center. The original Savory Spice Shop is located in Denver, CO. With much success they created a website and online shop as well as franchised locations. They offer spices for purchase in amounts as little as a half ounce to larger sized bottles. The spices are ground fresh in batches on a weekly basis. I found the perfect gift box for my father-in-law. He loves hot, tear inducing dishes--the spicier the better. The Fire Eaters set includes Piri Piri, Extra Hot Cajun Style Blackening Seasoning, Extra Hot Jamaican Jerk, and the infamous Ghost Pepper Salt (Ghost Pepper is apparently the hottest pepper in the world). Read all about this set here. Check out this fabulous locally owned (franchised) shop. The owner is usually in the store and very helpful and knowledgeable about any spice you may be seeking. The sets make great gifts for your foodie friends and family. (Gina)
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
