My love for spices knows no bounds. Spices make everything better. They bring a world full of cuisines to your kitchen. They allow you to take simple ingredients and transform them into something special with just a few sprinkles. That is why, I have a penchant for Penzeys Brand Spices. This wonderful spice company from Wauwatosa, WI has been a favorite of my family for as long as I can remember. As a child, my mom would order spices from their catalog. She always ordered new and interesting spices blends for us to try. With a cupboard full of fresh and delicious spices, our love of food and cooking began to grow.
When I moved away from home, mom sent me with a stock pile of Penzeys and now the I am sharing my love of this company with you. Not only are their spices fresh and flavorful, but the company is environmentally friendly. You can order refill spices in bags to fill up your glass jars. We don’t need more things in a landfill. They offer free spice packets with nearly every order so you can broaden your eating horizons. They send their spices with adorable pins and bumper stickers that I proudly display. They have free shipping deals almost weekly. If you’re close to a store location, the wonderful smells wafting through the air and beautiful presentation of the spices will keep you coming back for more.
Over the years, I started to try their different spice blends. They make creating dinner so easy. Simply cut up veggies, add protein, and a some of the spice blend, then cook. Voila’ dinner! Some of my favorites include Florida Seasoned Pepper, Chili Powder, Curry Powder, English Prime Rib Rub, and Berbere Seasoning, but the list could go on for nearly forever. I haven’t met a spice blend from them I didn’t like. No, unfortunately, Penzeys is not a sponsor of this blog, although that is a goal someday. I am just a loyal fan who wants to share their amazing spices with you.
Just this weekend Mr. Teacher and I returned home from a 2 week trip to Vermont and I needed to make us a quick dinner. Once again Penzeys and their Berbere Seasoning came to the rescue. I created a delicious Moroccan Spiced Chicken and Vegetables dish in a matter of minutes. Here is the link if you want to try it too. Moroccan Spiced Chicken and Vegetables
I hope you give this recipe and this company a try. Cooking is love! And just like the bumper sticker that came with my Christmas present from Mr. Teacher’s Dad this year says, “Love people. Cook them tasty food.” In the mean time, I will be ordering some new spices with my Penzeys gift card and creating more tasty recipes for you.
