Cooking is easy. Preparing your own food is often healthier then relying on convenience foods and can help you save a lot of money. When you cook yourself, you have complete control over the ingredients. Time and love is all that you need to start cooking. We can all agree that food prepared with love tastes better. Beside love you also need herbs, spices and seasonings. All Great cooks have well-stocked spice cabinet full with aromatic ingredients. Prepare yourself an easy, healthy and really tasty homemade seasoning and use it in your dishes.
Seasoning your food properly is really important. Over-seasoning can ruin your dish. Small amount of salt in your home cooking will bring out and enhance the flavors of your home cooked dish. If you’ve never made your own spice blends, I’d encourage you to try this “Homemade Seasoning Recipe”. It’s simple, saves money, you know what’s in it and you avoid the chemical additives that are in most spice blends. All herbs used and needed for this recipe are dehydrated, and you can buy them at local healthy food store. If you have dehydrator and time, you can dry them by yourself.
