I use it very often.

That's the only mix I use on a regular basis. I mostly like to put in individual spices to get the flavor I'm looking for.

BBQ, charcuterie, Cajun, Thai and many other cuisines require spice blends. I really don't have a "house blend" as a go to for everyday cooking.

Kayelle , look what I found for You,

I remembered that you love HERBS de Provence





Josie




Herbs de Provence

1/2 cup Thyme leaf
1/4 cup Marjoram leaf
2 tablespoons of cut and sifted Rosemary leaf
2 tablespoons Savory
1 teaspoon of Lavender flowers (lightly ground-optional)
2 teaspoons dried Orange zest (optional)
1 teaspoon ground Fennel seed
To Make: If you are zesting the orange yourself, remove the zest of one organic orange and dry in an oven on lowest setting or a dehydrator until completely dry. Place in a food processor with the lavender flowers and lightly pulse. Remove and mix all ingredients in a jar or bowl until mixed (do not grind up the herbs!). Excellent in soups, on chicken or on roasted vegetables.

Thanks for the recipe and also for thinking of me Josie!
I've copied it and I'm glad to see the proper proportions. I don't like it with lavender so I'll just leave it out. It's nearly impossible to find HdP without lavender in this country although I've since learned Americans are responsible for the lavender idea, not the French. What I brought home from the south of France had no lavender.
Thanks again!!

Lightbulb Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

I noticed that alot of folks here at DC make taco meat for different applications.
I started making my own seasoning mix and keep it in a spice jar. My Mom gave me a CASE of spice jars, so I always make doubles of everything, one for us my house and one for Mom's.

K~Girl's Taco Seasoning

1 Tbsp. Pasilla Chili Powder (any Chili Powder really)
1/2 tsp. Granulated (or Powdered) Garlic
1/2 tsp Granulated (or Powdered) Onion
1/2 tsp dried Oregano
1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 1/2 tsp freshly ground Cumin
1/2 tsp freshly ground Coriander
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp freshly ground Black Pepper

Add 1-3 Tbsp of seasoning to browned meat, along with 1/2 Tbsp of Flour, cook for a minute and then add 2/3 - 3/4 C. water and simmer.
