Over the past few years, I have fallen in love with making my own spice blends.

I love that I get to control what goes into them so there is no “hidden ingredients” like you can sometimes find in store-bought blends.

Plus I control how much salt is going into our food. With a sweetie that has high blood pressure, that is HUGE!

Honestly though, it is crazy how much sugar and salt some brands put into them!!

I also can tailor the amount of spice. We like it hot, I make it hot.

Don’t worry, all of my blends are made with the “normal” person in mind and then amped up to fire breathing status when I make it for home consumption!

This Italian seasoning blend is one of the #1 blends in our household. I use it in things like this Instant Pot Shredded Chicken, Low Carb Cauliflower “Mac and Cheese”, Low-Carb Italian Beef Bake. and Italian Baked Zucchini and Tomatoes.

We also really love my Tandoori seasoning blend and use that in recipes like this Tandoori Steak and Coconut Curry Beef Short Ribs.

I will be bringing you more homemade spice blends soon, I am just having fun playing around with flavors!!
