In 1991 a neighbor gave me a Penzey’s spice catalog. Then it was made of newsprint with no pictures. After my first shipment I loved the spices so much I never looked back. Today my spice cupboard is overflowing with Penzey’s spices.
I admire owner, Bill Penzey‘s, commitment to integrity and contempt for the current administration.

Do you have any favorite Penzeys blends? I meant to say on my blog that it was so nice of them to give you a recipe for Ras el Hanout!
I like a lot of their blends: Curry Now, Arizona Dreaming, Sandwich Sprinkle to name 3 without looking at my cupboard.
Haha, you already use two of those based on the photo you posted!
Someone gave me some Arizona Dreaming in a yummy box of four blends.
Sandwich Sprinkle was included in a gift box I gave my daughter-in-law. I’ll have to see if she has any favorites from that box. Fox Point and Tsar Dust are in my cupboard, along with Brady Street, which has become my favorite thing to put on air-popped popcorn. It contains cheese, but I use it so sparingly it’s not a problem.
I love spices. And I’d love your recipe for Ras el Hanout – I could swap yours for mine.
Now I’m envying everyone’s spice collections. (Coveting is becoming a problem the deeper we go into the month.)
