Top 5 seasonings I can't live without!!

        Today I would like to share with you my top seasonings that are a must have for me when it comes to making my food taste great. 

1# Old bay, not only does it make seafood delicious, but also pork, chicken, and beef.

2# Soul seasoning, there is nothing wrong with putting a little soul in your food, I know it looks like old bay but they taste completely different.

3# Cumin, trying to make Chill without it, is like trying to make lemonade without lemons .
Chili recipe coming soon!

4# Sea salt, I use this. because a little goes a long way.

5# Ground black pepper, Come on need I say more?

A new toy!

        Hello everyone hope all is well. Before I get into my new toy I would like to say, Happy Cinco De Mayo!!  My husband  got my a new knife to add to my collection, it's a 8" Farberware chef knife .                  

I have to say at first i did not think it would cut like my other chef knife but, it cuts, chops, and dices better than my 60 dollar one,  now I'm in love with it.
