JB’s All-Purpose Blend II

I decided JB needed  a little variety in their seasoning so I came up with this blend. this blend has a few additions to the original JB’s All-Purpose Blend. Just like the original it is easy to assemble. By double or tripling the ingredients you can have a larger quantity ready for whenever it is needed.

  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 2 tbsp thyme
  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp mustard, ground
  • 1 tsp black pepper, ground
  • 1 tsp sage, ground
  • 1 tsp dill

Combine of the ingredients into a mason jar. Seal with a lid and shake the jar like crazy. Shake the jar until all the ingredients are well mixed.

Remember to give the jar a good shake each time before using this blend.

Sprinkle. Eat. Enjoy.

JB’s All-Purpose Blend

I have a client that has a lot of food allergies. It has been a welcomed challenge to try and find foods and seasonings that they can have and enjoy without any discomfort. This seasoning blend I made just for them so that all their foods can have loads of flavor.

  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt (optional)
  • 2 tbsp thyme, ground
  • 2 tbsp oregano, ground
  • 1 tsp mustard, ground
  • 1 tsp black pepper, ground

Combine all the ingredients into a mason jar. Seal the jar with a lid and shake until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Use to season just about anything you want.

Baking Spice Blend

Since baking season is just about upon us. I thought I would share my favorite spices for baking. I almost always use the same ratio of spices in my baked goods. So, instead of measuring each time the same amounts I decided to make up a blend of my favorite baking spices. Now I only have to measure once when I want to bake.

This spice blend is a simple ratio of 3-2-1. After I measured my spices I added them to a small mason jar and shook it like crazy – Done. From now on when you see Baking Spice Blend you will know what I am talking about.

  • 3 tbsp cinnamon, ground
  • 2 tbsp nutmeg, ground
  • 1 tbsp ginger, ground

Measure out the ingredients. Add spices to a small mason jar. Securely fasten lid and shake. Done.

Savory Spice Blend

I have two spice blends that I use the majority of the time; my All-purpose Seasoning and my Smokey Southwestern Seasoning. Both are enjoyed equally, yet I might have a new seasoning blend that possibly will ascend to the top. It has a combination of both the All-purpose and Smokey Southwestern with a few additions.

Herbs and Spices are so important to cooking. They impart flavor and in some cases additional nutritional value to your dish. So do not forget to season and pump up the flavor and the nutrients to your food.

Note: You can find the recipes for both my All-purpose and Smokey Southwestern Blend seasonings in the basics section on my site, or you can purchase them pre-made in my store.

Combine all ingredients into a mason jar. Cover mason jar with lid and shake to mix together ingredients.

Sprinkle. Cook. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

All-Purpose Seasoning

I like to make up different seasonings to add a new dimension to the flavor of the dish. Each mix I make gives a dish a new flavor profile, making it unique. So far I’ve shared my Mediterranean and Southwestern. Today its the quintessential All-purpose mix. Hope you enjoy the flavor.

  • 2 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp Himalayan Salt (optional)
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper

Measure all ingredients into a mason jar. Shake. Sprinkle. That’s it. Try it on any protein or vegetable you like. This seasoning will transform your dish.img_0601

Smokey Southwestern Seasoning

Seasoning your food is one of the easiest ways to add lots of flavor to any dish, and make your ingredients stand out. I have a few seasoning mixes that I go to to add a little extra something to whatever I’m making. As promised yesterday, this is the Smokey South Western Seasoning Mix. I’ve used this in so many ways: Southwestern Meatballs, a frittata, on fish, the list is endless. Give it a try.

  • 1 tbsp sea salt (optional)

This is probably one of the easiest recipes ever. Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar, and shake, until it is completely incorporated. Have fun.
