I’ve always loved eating a variety of different foods but until recently, cooking was never an interest of mine and I was quite content having others cook for me. Five years ago I decided to give cooking a try and, to my surprise found a lot of pleasure and serenity in it! I was raised in Texas and Oklahoma, and I lived in Mexico for a short time so naturally, Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Southern cuisine have been a big part of my life.
In 1999 I met my future husband- a third generation New Yorker who lives to cook and descends from Italian, Lebanese and Polish roots. What a combination! He introduced me new foods and recipes that were passed down from great grandparents from the old countries. I introduced him to Mexican and Southern comfort foods.
In my journey of learning to cook I grew frustrated with not having all the ingredients needed to prepare an ethnic meal. Finding a recipe, driving from one store to the next, searching for ingredients and paying up to $10 for a jar of spice. There had to be an easier way. The Spice Kit is my solution to the aggravation I endured to create a delectable, ethnic meal- a convenient system containing delicious recipes and the spices needed to prepare them.
It is my sincere hope that The Spice Kit opens a wonderful and expansive culinary door, and that various flavors and aromas will permeate your kitchen.
