There is an exhilarating sense of accomplishment when you create a sauce without having to look up a recipe online or pull out the dog-eared cookbook. Your shoulders automatically pull back and you stand just a wee bit straighter than before. You nailed it.
You see, the more we cook from scratch, the more experienced we get. Variety of dried spices and fresh herbs start getting introduced to your old standbys. What used to be the pantry staple of processed pasta sauces all of a sudden becomes extinct as you add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. You start creating your own masterpieces.
Maybe you’re still waiting to start that next level of confidence with your meal prep. Perhaps you’ve already started and you are yearning for more.
Are you? I am.
What is RAWSPICEBAR?
RAWSPICEBAR is a subscription service of freshly ground spice kits that introduces you to the world of flavors… customized to your taste. Recipes are designed with your diet preferences and every month three freshly toasted, ground, and blended spice kits arrive at your doorstep with custom recipes. Of course, if you end up going bonkers over one of the spice blends, you can absolutely order individual spices and forgo the kits. Use this link for a free trial and see for yourself.
The goal is continuous variety and inspiration.
My flavor kit arrived with a Peppercorn Chai blend, and Unpumpkin Pie Spice blend, and an Indo-French Vadouvan blend. The Vadouvan blend married perfectly with a leek and butternut squash soup. But seriously, I went crazy over the chai, making a delicious pot of peppercorn masala chai using almond milk, water, pyure, and earl grey black tea leaves. Because of it, I am officially obsessed with all things chai. All things.
Now what’s this about a free subscription giveaway?
Yes, you heard me right. Thanks to the folks at RAWSPICEBAR, one of you will receive a free annual subscription. Yes, as in twelve months of variety and inspiration completely free.
