I love creating my own spice mixes; not only does it give you control over the ingredients, and keeps out the chemicals and preservatives, in addition you can tweak it to fit your individual tastes.

Recipes for Old Bay include most of the same ingredients… It is the proportions that make each mix unique. This is my unique mix.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
