I love inventing new herb and spice combination to increase flavor of our meals. Variety is spice of life and with all 1,000's of herbs and spices our palates should never be bored!
There is such good health and cost benefit by making your own mixes. You won't have unnecasary salt added to your mixes and you will save money too! Once you get a whiff or your own herb mixes you'll never go back to those little tins on grocery store shelf.
