Merry Christmas in February!

My aunt, uncle and cousin in Colorado gave me a Penzeys giftcard for Christmas and I just placed my order. SO excited! If you haven't been to a Penzeys (it's a national company, you should check it out, or even look online. It's an awesome spice store with all kinds of stuff. Today I used to my giftcard to buy poppy seeds (I have a recipe to try called Poppy Seed Chicken), black peppercorns, Old World Seasoning (which they claim is their lower salt answer to Seasoning Salt, which I frequently put on my cooked broccoli), Pasta Sprinkle (says it's good to put on pasta or chicken too!), and I got some Vietnamese Extra Fancy Cinnamon (how exciting is that?! the website said it's super strong cinnamon and perfect to use when cinnamon is the main flavor- like with cinnamon rolls). With the giftcard, they also gave me some dried minced garlic which is awesome. I've used it a couple times and would recommend it. Thanks Colorado family! I'm excited to get cooking with some different flavors!

I just went to Penzey's Monday! I got some cinnamon sugar, taco seasoning, and garlic salt. My mom gets all her spices there. A favorite of hers is the vanilla sugar to sprinkle on sweets. The aroma of the store is quite overwhelming!
