Homemade Savory Spice Mixes // If you've run out of our favorite spice mixes, have no fear - you can make them at home! | Tried and TastyI’ve been seeing homemade spice mixes all over the internet for a while now. I’ve even used a couple of recipes a time or two when I ran out of some popular mixes that you normally have on hand. I was eager to make a few of my favorite spice mixes in to a fun little neighbor gift and I’m so happy with how they turned out! Have you seen these Ball Dry Herb Jars? They are the perfect size for storing your dried garden herbs, but also great for your homemade spices! Aside from all of that, they are just too dang adorable! I love them!

I don’t know about you, but my spice collection is out of control. I have almost any spice you could imagine. With that said, sometimes it’s hard to see if I’ve got everything I need. There’s nothing worse than going to grab a particular spice only to find out you don’t have it. That’s where these recipes will come in handy. There are lots of mixes you can make right at home with what you’ve got on hand. This would be the perfect gift for the cook you know that already has everything they need, plus it’s not terribly expensive and won’t break the bank or your budget!

    Hi, what directions would you include with the taco seasoning when gifting it? How much seasoning and water per pound of Hamburg?

    1. Yvonne

      That’s an excellent question! 7 teaspoons is equivalent to 1 (1.25 ounce) package of taco seasoning. Generally you’ll add the 7 tsp. with 1/4 c. water!

    1. Yvonne

      Awe, thank you so much! SO happy you like – I thought they were pretty great ideas, but I’m a little biased I’m sure ;) And YOU are awesome!

    Thanks for the seasoning combos. Much better than the packaged ones in the store. Ye Gads – have you read the ingredients on the back? Loaded with chemicals.

    1. Yvonne

      For sure!! Oh man, some of the crap they put in food just really makes me wonder… these are great to have on hand! Thanks for checking it out!
