What?

Ever wonder how food would taste without spices? What would our food be if it weren’t for spices? How did spices come about? I love spices and cooking. I love cooking with spices. Of course I can’t cook like they do on all of these chef shows they have on TV now but I can do some amazing things.

Who?

My name is Shannon. I’m a mother, a cook, a nanny, a teacher, a wife, a traveler, a learner, a reader, and a wanna be foodie. I’m more of a Spicy. I have done some traveling so I have experienced some different cuisines and I like to add my little twist to some traditional international dishes. When I taste food, like food and try to cook it I wonder why this spice and that spice. What if I add this or that? Where did it come from and where did it originate?
I love food and I like cooking if it’s for fun. Not so much when I have to cook for my family. Although I mostly like cooking for them. My three boys are my little judges. I experiment on them…poor things. Most of the time they are like, “Wow mom this is great!” But sometimes they are like, “What should we do with all of these door stops!”

Why?

I want to share my culinary successes with you. Mostly simple food though that you could cook at home for your family. This isn’t just a recipe blog though. I will dig around about the spices I use and showcase one or two particular ones in every post. I will give you interesting facts and opinions about the spices showcased and most importantly health benefits.
If you ever need help with a dish or spice or you have questions or comments, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Shannon
