I am a lover of food.
I mean come on, who isn’t? How can you not be?
One thing that makes great food besides great cooks, is great spices!!
So I have a company I want to tell you about.
I love cooking. I love being able to mess around with different flavors and seasonings to see what you can get. The thing is, there are so many spices out there how do you choose? It’s really not easy.
I took a wing at it and choose a few I thought would work well in my house hold. Now, I am not an expert in food so I am going to try to describe these items as best as I possible can… This should be fun!!! =P
Indonesian Ground Nutmeg – Let’s talk about the smell first. The smell of this nutmeg is unlike any I have ever smelt before. It’s strong but fresh. Like you can really smell how fresh it is. You can also really smell the nuttiness within it as well. Season with Spice solely sources their nutmegs from their native place. I really can’t express how amazing this smells. If you are interested in the Indonesian Ground Nutmeg go HERE. They list 2 articles to find out more about it. I promise you, you wont regret it.
Vietnamese Cinnamon – First, let me tell you when you go to smell this cinnamon don’t put it to close to your nose like I did. I accidentally ended up snorting some. That was interesting to say the least. I’m actually not a fan of cinnamon. Normally when you go out for breakfast or you purchase something from the store it’s just too much. They overload the item with cinnamon and it just because way too powering. However, this cinnamon… I like. It’s not just regular old cinnamon, it’s a little spicy and I really like that. The smell is very powerful and I really must admit, I really really like it!!! For more information about the Vietnamese Cinnamon go HERE.
Smoked Spanish Paprika – I love paprika. I just love the taste it can add to our dinners. But I also love the color it brings with it. I always used paprika when I would make roast beef or roasted pork at one of my old jobs. It gave off a nice little favor but a vibrant color. The Smoked Spanish Paprika is no where in comparison to the one I have always used. The smokeyness is just amazing from this baby. One sniff of this and I feel like I am outside by a campfire. I don’t even know if that makes sense but its’ really smokey and I just love it. And look at how red it is. It’s amazing! It brings so much color to the meal at hand. Everything you want to know about Smoked Spanish Paprika can be found HERE.
Balinese Pyramid Sea Salt – IS AMAZING!!! The size if the pieces are incredible. I don’t think i have ever seen sea salt in pieces this size before. The salt is amazing. I mean really, a little goes a long way! I can’t really say much about this salt other than it is a must have!! It’s just all around amazing!!! All information about Balinese Pyramid Sea Salt can be found HERE.
Tandoori Seasoning – This is something I have never heard of before but let me tell you that it is amazing. The smell is rich and super smokey. This is a blend of different spices like paprika, ginger, garlic, as well as others. It’s really got a unique taste to it and I have to say I really do enjoy it! I really love when spices are vibrant in color! I love when food is colorful, makes it more fun to eat!! =D To read more about Tandoori Seasoning check it out HERE
Vietnamese Spicy BBQ Seasoning – This was interesting to say the least. I have never had anything like this seasoning. The smell is interesting as well. I had a really hard time pin pointing what it was a was smelling. I want to say I can smell a hint of the Vietnamese Cinnamon but I’m not 100% sure. Now though this was ‘interesting’ to me, it was really good! The scent is powerful and the color of vibrant and by now you can tell these are things I am loving!!!
Now, these are all the seasoning I have so far from Season with Spice and if you can’t tell by now let me inform you…
I AM IN LOVE!!!!!!!
These aren’t like spices I have bought from the store. Now I understand the convenience of a store but these are so fresh and the smell and taste are so powerful that I personally think it is worth the wait of shipping which isn’t very long if you ask me. Good food brings a family together so go get your food on!!!
Now for the recipe!!!!! =P
Here we have the starting process of what we are making. Squeezing all the juice out the lemons…
So far we have one whole onion 2 things of ginger and lemon juice from 1 lemon.
Now we have added a 8oz container of plain yogurt and sprinkled some of the Tandoori Seasoning by Season with Spice in.

Someone got a littler angry and though it would be fun to puncture the pork to death! HAHA
