For this first entry, I want to challenge myself and thought by putting it online for the world to see that I will be able to hold myself accountable.
It dawned on me a couple of weeks ago that I have a lot of spices on my spice rack that isn't being used as often as I would probably like. Oh sure, when I bought that bottle of nutmeg or vial of saffron, I thought that I would make fabulous and exotic dishes with it. The fact of the matter is that if I probably only use about 15% of the items that are sitting on the rack just begging to be used.
The challenge is this:
Over the next few weeks, I will require myself to make dishes that use at least one of the following items on my "rarely used" spice list as follows:
- All Spice
- Almond Extract
- Pumpkin Spice
- Garam Masala
- Vanilla Beans
- Ground Mustard
- Celery Seed
Thanks for joining me on this blog. I hope you find it enjoyable and fun.
