  1. How can I print a copy of your spice mixes for my own us? They are really great but I don't want to have to hand copy them. They are great references for my kitchen. Thanks.

    1. Do you know how to highlight text? If so, highlight, copy buy right clicking and hitting "copy", open up your word document, right click and it will say paste. Paste it and save it as a document.

    2. Also, if you use Windows, you can right click the three little lines in the upper right hand corner of the screen and choose "print".

  5. Look for bulk spices at ethnic markets, where it's often cheaper to buy them. http://www.usimplyseason.com/

  6. It's wise to include spices in your food storage. When times are tough, you'll still want some flavor with your food. Spices can be stored for a long time if they are in cool and dry conditions.

  7. I really love these recipes! I have been trying to find some good food storage spice recipes for quite a while. Thank you!

  8. I love that you make your own spices! I always thought it would be difficult, but it seems decently easy. I make a spicy meat rub that my husband loves. If there is ever a natural disaster, we better have enough of that in food storage, or he would go insane.
