Spicing up your life!

beans.jpgThere are just some herbs and spices that I always keep around the house. Basil. Parsley. Oregano. Chili. Cinnamon. Garlic (is that a spice?)

Lifetime TV has a list of spices for you to use to spice up your life! Just click here or cut and paste this link into your browser: http://www.mylifetime.com/lifestyle/health/diet-nutrition/best-bites-nice-spice-3?cmpid=Email-Healthy%20Living-2009-03-31.

Some of Lifetime’s recommendations are cayenne, my favorite cinnamon, cloves (blech!), fennel (double blech!) and my most popular garlic!

I use cinnamon a lot in my coffee, hot chocolate and my grandma’s secret cold recipe (not so secret since I told you about it last year). Garlic is great on food, but also by itself when it’s roasted and you can spread it on bread.

What are some of your favorite spices?

  1. When I grew up salt was the only spice used in our house. Now I love to try different spices. Sometimes the experiment works and sometimes…. even the starving children wherever wouldn’t eat it!

  2. Hello Caridad!

    What is the secret cold remedy? I can sure use one now! I’ve had a fever for two weeks and NOW I have a cold! LOL

    But what a great and simple idea to spice up your life! Cinnamon is my favourite too but I do love cloves in gingerbread. Mmmmmmm, gingerbread. LOL
