I am a HUGE spice fan. You should see my spice cabinet it has everything from allspice to… wait a minute… you can see it! Here’s a clip from my Day In the Life video series I did way back when. . .
Please ignore my shaky camera hand and babbling. :)
I’ve moved since that video but my spice cabinet looks exactly the same. Spices are great pantry items. For me it’s about fun and flavor. Food is simply more satisfying when it taste good. Think of a plain old chicken breast…
With some simple spices you can make some really fun dishes, like. . .
- The Husband’s New Favorite Chicken with Veggie Couscous
- 6 Spice Chicken Bites
- Curried Chicken with Peas
- Lemon Sage Chicken Packs
These all start with plain old chicken but look how different each can be by simply adding flavor with spices. Ok, ok, so that last one is herbs but I lump them two together.
Oh! and did I mention spices (most of them anyway, as I’m sure there may be a exception out there) are 0 points. That’s ZERO points! :)
Anyway, this is a LONG introduction to the Super Seven Spice Giveaway. Here’s the deal, Maureen from McCormick contacted me and asked if I’d like to host a contest to give away 5 sets of the McCormick “Super Seven” spices in honor of their 30 Day Super Swap challenge.
Of course I said yes! I mean.. FREE spices! Have you seen how expensive they can be? Geesh! Plus, I really do think they are invaluable. So the more people I can give them away to, the better!
So leave a comment on how you use spices for a chance to win a McCormick gift pack containing Cinnamon, Ginger, Oregano, Red Pepper, Rosemary, Thyme, Curry and a calender with 30 Super Swaps giving you some great ideas to use in your kitchen!
The only catch… You must live in the US and have a street address (no P.O. boxes) <–Sorry guys. :(
Ok, so give it up. . . What will you do with the Super 7 if you win?
Full Discloser: McCormick also sent me a set of the super seven to try out. I was not compensated in any other way to write this post.
