I love a simple combination where all the ingredients are balanced and the flavors blend perfectly. This Turmeric Tropical Smoothie is a great example. Any number of ingredients would make a great add-in, from coconut and vanilla to ginger and cayenne- but if you really want to taste the turmeric, keep it simple! Everyone is raving about the super-spice these days and touting the health benefits of turmeric, so pop some into your morning smoothie and enjoy the flavors too!Get the recipe >>
Far more bold and exotic than most traditional steak rubs, our Sassy Steak Spice was born out of a craving for a steak rub with Latin American flair. We've used chipotle flakes and Alderwood smoked salt for smokiness, Mexican oregano for an herbacious feel, and rounded it all out with long pepper, Urfa biber...and, yes, Vietnamese cinnamon. Our Sassy Steak Spice has quite a few admirers, and will make one out of you, too.Find out more >>
