Getting in a flavor rut can really bum a girl out.
I'm actually not that creative when it comes to reaching into my cabinet, mixing spices, and coming up with amazing combinations of flavors. I was introduced to Penzey's Spices of Pittsburgh, PA a couple of years ago, and life hasn't been the same since. Seriously, these spice blends can bring life to any dish.
