How to Spice Up Your Holiday Season & Giveaway

Spice Up Your Holiday Season & Giveaway

I've been fortunate to collaborate with Raw Spice Bar a few times over the past years. They were kind enough to send me some of their monthly spice subscriptions. While I like to cook (most of the time) sometimes I get in a rut. Do you ever have that happen? Nothing seems inspiring or even appetizing. It's hard to find the motivation to get out the pots and pans and cutting boards and cook when you aren't feeling that spark. The spices I have received from Raw Spice Bar when I have collaborated with them always seem to get me thinking and searching for new recipes and ways to use them! It helps to feel inspired by new flavors and finding ways to use them. I've had a few mediocre recipes I've attempted, but on the whole I've found quite a few delicious new dishes to add to my rotation when using Raw Spice Bar spice. And the flops have never been due to the spices. The spices are always aromatic, full of flavor, and packaged nicely. 

The holidays are often a time that I feel rather uninspired in the kitchen. My holiday baking takes precedence and my cooking takes a back seat. It's no fun to sit down to a meal that is hastily prepared and lacks flavor and (as my daughter likes to say) 'love.' So this year I am spicing up my holiday season with Raw Spice Bar! Here's how you can do it, too! And make sure to enter the amazing giveaway hosted by Raw Spice Bar for a 1 year subscription gift card! 

Use Raw Spice Bar's amazing recipe bank
If you are stuck and don't know what to make for dinner, check out the recipe bank on Raw Spice Bar! You can find it at the bottom of their website under the LEARN MORE section. It is a wealth of delicious recipes and lots of great photos! What I love is I can explore based on the spice I am wanting to use. There are several recipes (some of which I have tried) that you can use different spices depending on what you have a taste for. It's fun to have a base recipe that you can switch up flavors! 

Include spice packets in a hostess gift basket
Heading somewhere for the holidays? A hostess gift is always a thoughtful gesture. Include some spices from Raw Spice Bar in a basket with a festive kitchen towel and candle! It's a gift that is sure to please any host this holiday season! 

Gift a Raw Spice Bar year's subscription
Do you have that person who just stumps you every year when it comes to giving gifts? A year's subscription to Raw Spice Bar is the perfect gift! It certainly doesn't break the budget, and each month the person will be reminded what an awesome person you are when they receive their spices! 

So what have I done with my spices over the years? Here are a few of the recipes I've made!

Easy Baked Meatballs with Ras El Hanout spice

Potato Pancakes with Apple Pie Spice

Moroccan Chicken Burgers with Ras El Hanout spice

Greek Chicken Ciabatta Sandwiches with Greek Salt Free Seasoning
