Garam Masala

Spice up your life!
We just LOVE spices at our house. They add so much flavor and character to an enormous range of dishes. No world cuisine would be complete without spices and their leafy cousins, herbs. The term spice usually refers to the dried seeds of different plants, sometimes herbs, shrubs or trees. One spice known the world over is pepper, which are the dried seeds of a vine. Coriander are the dried seeds of cilantro. Cardamom grows on big towering trees. Many spices are imported from tropical climates, but many can also be produced locally or even in your own backyard. Spices are incredibly beneficial for health, stimulating your body and all its systems. In fact, before modern science, spices were medicine and can still be used to that effect. Personally, I like to make my medicine delicious and eat it!

Coconut Caramel Popcorn

For a late-night snack or just an afternoon treat, we love popcorn! Savory popcorn, dressed up with spices and herbs or nutritional yeast, always hits the spot. But sometimes we want to whip up a quick dessert that we can munch for hours, and this caramel popcorn recipe never disappoints!
First, you have to make the perfect plain popcorn. It's not difficult, but it does take some practice to make stovetop popcorn just right. We have included instructions for the best popcorn.
