Spice Blends

What are some of your favorite spice blends that come already mixed?

I received a Christmas present from my Sister last year of Penzy spices.I am a big fan now and they will be sent out as Christmas gifts this year by me.

I received this gift box
International Salt Free (4 Jar) - Penzeys Spices

and this one

Grill and Broil Mini Gift Box - Penzeys Spices

I have used them all year and thought of her many times.I have not been disappointed with any of them and will refill when enpty.One of my favorite presents!

I also Like "Spike" for chicken and pork.it reminds me of Indian spices but just a hint.Great on chicken and pork.

Spices - Spike Seasoning By Modern Products, 3 Oz, Item #122152

there was a recall recently on this spice so check it out if you have some and get a new jar.the stuff on the shelves should be fine from a supermarket by now.

I also Like McCormicks Grill Mates spices.
Montreal steak
Spicy montreal steak
Montreal Chicken
BBQ

I love those four.

Products | Grill Mates&reg | Master the Flame, Master the Flavor

I mix my own spices about half the time but the above are my "Go To" flavors.

What's in your cabinet?

I have recently fallen for Penzy's, will be getting some of my own. It's nice to know they have salt-free.

The Grillmates! I get a huge Montreal steak, a regular size Spicy Montreal steak and 2 salt free Montreal Chicken and mix them all together for my steak/chicken seasoning.

For general spicing, I make my own Emeril's Essence with only 1/4th the salt.

Mrs. Dash, the original.

I mix equal parts Montreal chicken and Montreal steak for a prime rib rub.

I am going to try Mrs. Dash now.

Do you eat dairy?

Mrs. Dash in cottage cheese, left in fridge so it can rehydrate the spices, is Divine!

I try to cut salt out of most foods, so i can salt to my taste. Once I'm done cooking, everyone else can have the salt shaker if they want more.

I'll try that! I don't do cottage cheese plain.

I am with Nixon and like some ketchup in mine.(throwing double peace signs up now)

I love Mrs. Dash Blends also, especially their Garlic and Herb.
For Penzey's spices: Their Fines Herbes and Herbes de Provence are excellent (both are salt-free). I also like their Garam Masala (salt-free), and Country French Vinaigrette mix.

Pappy's seasoning is pretty well known and I use it frequently.

Okay, I'm definitely going to Penzy's. I ran out of Fines Herbes and Herbes de Provence and couldn't find them here. I bought them in Denver before.

I've never tried the other Mrs. Dash blends...I'll have to take a look.

Thanks for the insight on Penzy's. My new supervisor has Penzy's season salt in the office, it is quite tasty!

Thanks for the recommendation of their Seasoned Salt - I'll have to check it out. Have you tried their Smoked Paprika? It's great!

I got my smoked paprika from Costco...since it turns out I love it, I will be looking for other brands and giving them a try. No sense in ordering from Penzy's unless I have a full list.
