My mom gave me a spice rack for Christmas that came with spices in it. But most if the spices are things I've never used before. Like crushed mint. I've done some reading about a few of the spices just to figure out how to use them. I tried making lemonade with a mint simple syrup this evening. I think I added too much mint, but I liked it enough that I want to try it again! I am really enjoying all the recipe reading and research that's come with all these unfamiliar spices!
Life is beautiful, especially when you are looking for the beautiful things that happen every day.
