A Little House Blend

filed under: Miscellaneous on May 18, 2010

Just a tidbit to share.

As you may or may not know, I cant cook worth a darned.

So, anytime I come across something that makes my life a little easier in the kitchen, I want to tell everyone I know!  And usually upon doing this I realize that everyone already knows.

Oh well.

Guess I will share here because then I can pretend.  That I am helping someone just like me.

Or something.

Anywho.

Did you know that you can make your own house blend??

Of seasonings that is.

I finally made one and I love it!

Its so easy even I can do it.

I just used:

1 cup kosher salt

1/4 cup pepper

1/4 cup garlic salt

This recipe is accredited to many, many folks, so I have no idea where to begin given credit where it is due.

Let me just say, it was not my original idea.

Now,  just blend your spices together.

And store in your favorite container. (old marshmallow fluff jar)

Then use (liberally) over your favorite food!

I have used this on everything. 

Well.  Not my super mario cookies.  But most everything else. 

So tell me, do you have a favorite house blend?

    oh sounds good..and easy!! Tommy sure started a trend with the Mario cookies huh?? looks like they are quite the hit!! but you are right..would not be good with garlic salt..ha

  • Julie says:

    p.s. did you add something else to your chicken? looks like an herb or soemthing else besides just pepper on there..looks great!

  • Jan says:

    That is similar to the Paula Deen House Seasoning, but she uses Garlic Powder instead of Garlic Salt (perhaps because you are already using salt??)
    I tend to throw a little of that on everything I make. Then add a few more spices so it doesn’t all taste the same. :/
    I am amazed that you make all food look delicious!!!!

    🙂 Our “house blend” is Mrs. Dash table blend and fresh crushed garlic. Got to try yours.

    A little House Blend is a very good thing. Very similar to Paula Deen’s mix. Salt? Garlic? I’m so there.

  • Jenney says:

    You could puyt some in an old salt shaker and put it right on the table to use whenever you want too! I’d just have to omit the pepper, because I swear I can tell a mile away if someone put pepper in my food EWWWWW! :o)

    Wow! What a great idea! Pretty darn good for a person who is such a bad cook! Yah right!! 🙂

  • carma says:

    I put basil and oregano on 90% of the things I make, which may or may not be a good thing

  • ali says:

    Oh yes, I love making my own seasoning mixes! It is my intention to never buy another packet of taco seasoning again, or ranch dressing seasoning… but you kow what they say about good intentions… so we’ll see, but I’ve been doing good for a while 🙂

  • Paula says:

    Looks good. Just wondering, do you use cracked pepper or ground pepper?

  • The lady of the House says:
