McCormick Recipe Inspirations

Have you ever found a really fun recipe that you wanted to try but were overwhelmed by the list of ingredients? Especially if some of the spices needed are not ones you use frequently?

I'm pretty sure I don't need an entire jar of fennel seeds and I'm 99% sure I have some spices that really need to be replaced because I've been known to view cooking as more of a one-time challenge and once I've conquered a recipe...I move on. Hence the endless jars of mostly filled spices.

Sorry...rabbit trail....moving on.

While I was doing battle at HEB last week, I came across these little darlins': McCormick Recipe Inspirations.

The new McCormick Recipe Inspirations collection puts flavorful twists on traditional recipes that will impress everyone at your dinner table. Each packet includes pre-measured McCormick spices and herbs and a collectible recipe card.

They offer 12 different recipes and I brought home the Quesadilla Casserole and Tuscan Chicken Stew.

I'm excited to try them and not add more spices to my very large spice graveyard. If only I'd these during football season!

Let me know if you try any of the other recipes

Cupcake Awesomeness for the Holidays

Hey there...I know I have been MIA. Football season is winding down and it's been incredibly fun....but mercy me, we just aren't at the old homestead much. Hence, no blogging to be done. always know that if I'm absent, I just don't have anything I deem blog worthy at the time. However, can I share a pic of my football players?

Don't they look 10 feet tall?

Ok, onto some real news.
