My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Here's a super simple recipe to make your own taco seasoning. Most store-bought seasoning packets contain whey, potato starch and citric acid in them. This is a healthier recipe - and one that can be prepared in just a couple minutes!
{ Prep Time: 2 mins / Difficulty: Easy! / Yields: 4 ounces }

1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp paprika
2 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp + 1tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp black pepper

1. In a small bowl, measure out all the ingredients, and stir until combined. Store in a ziplock baggie, or airtight container.

*Note: The seasoning packets you buy at the grocery store contain about 1 - 1 1/2 ounces, so the above recipe (which has been quadrupled) should get you through 3-4 large pots of chili or taco soup! I love making this seasoning because it's super easy, and most of the spices are staples in my kitchen. I buy all my bulk spices at Costco & Sam's Club.
