The Magic of Spices

*** This is a sponsored post.

Truth, I just recently discover the art and science of cooking, I never actually thought of learning until we moved out of my parent's house and live on our own. This blog is an active testament to my love of everything dine-in and take-out, in our first few months of living away from the sumptuous meals and grand life that only my mother can give, I substituted decent meals with fast food and cafeteria treats, I seldom cook as I am scared of making mistakes and failing. But as I blog about food, I often passed by other foodie blogs that talks about cooking and the happiness and delight it can give to the cook and the ones he/she cook for, the range of yummy and mouth-watering dishes and recipes are endless and I can't help but be enamored, that's when I started to spend a little more time in the kitchen. I spend hours asking my mom about recipes and some more on looking online, I even created a recipe blog to document my journey and the baby steps I am taking, after almost seven months, I can say that I am doing good, I am not yet a master but I am slowly getting there *grins*.

One of the most important trick that I learn in cooking is using and playing with spices and seasonings. A pinch of salt will make your recipe tasteful but if you can add pepper, basil or rosemary to it, it'll be a whole new story. If you make a deviled egg, the usual combination of egg yolks, mayo, mustard, salt and ham bits can be enough but a sprinkle of paprika on top will add a tang to it. If you're trying to cook some good 'ol spaghetti for your kids, the usual ingredients of ground meat, spaghetti sauce and salt could be enough but a little pepper can make it more exciting, then add some dried oregano and you'll have Italian pasta. If you had been drinking lemonade for the whole summer and wanna try a different taste, you can try adding some basil leaves and you have a twist on your classic drink. That's the magic of spices, it can turn an ordinary dish into something special if you just know how to use and play with it.

Are you ready to add that zip on your homemade dishes? I can help you with that, try Pendery's, they have a gigantic assortment of spices and seasonings in affordable prices plus they offer it on different sizes, too, you can take as much or as little as you need and afford. If you crave for some gourmet food, salsa and other sauces then you're in luck as Pendery's also have that and more in their product list, you can even download their catalog for easy browsing even when you're offline. Pretty nifty eh?

Happy cooking!

About Me

I am a wife to the sweetest person on Earth and a mother to the cutest baby boy in the planet. I love reading literary books but I have an addiction in contemporary/renaissance romance novels. I am a video game aficionado in the truest sense of the word. I love to travel the world, if and only given the opportunity. I don't know how to cook (but I'm slowly learning) so there's a fascination with take-outs and dine-ins. I could go on and on but I guess you had enough *lol*.
