I love to use lots of herbs and spices in my foods, but I found it to be very cumbersome to pull out all the jars and measure each on separately.

One day, I decided to make a few different combinations that could be used for different types of food, depending on what mood my taste buds were in.

I encourage you to create your own and share them with other grownUPgirls, but for now I will share with you three of my most used blends.

Italian and Everyday Seasoning
1/2 C dried tomato dices 
1/2 C dried mixed peppers
1/2 C dried basil
1/2 C dried oregano
1/2 C thyme
1/2 C applewood salt
1 T pepper
For best results, blend this in a food processor and store in a sealed container.

Egg and Soup Seasoning
1/2 C Dried Vegetable Soup Mix
1/2 C celery seed
1/2 C marjoram
1/2 C thyme
1/4 C sage
1/2 C smoked salt
1 T pepper
For best results, blend this in a food processor and store in a sealed container.

Mexican Herb & Spice Mix
1/2 C cilantro
1/2 C oregano
1/2 C cumin
1/2 C marjoram
1 C chili powder
1/2 C hickory salt 
1/2 C Montreal Chicken Seasoning 
For best results, blend this in a food processor and store in a sealed container.
