Summertime is in full swing – and that can only mean one thing – it’s grilling time!!
Getting a bit bored of the usual staples and looking for something new to cook on the grill? We have two spice blends that are perfect and a little different.
Our Middle Eastern Burgers and Kabobs blend makes it easy to create a burger/kabob that is a variation on your usual, with the exotic and classic flavors of the Middle East. All you have to do is mix the spices into the meat!
Our Hungarian Paprika Chicken/Fish blend makes a simple but delicious marinade with smoked paprika and other spices, olive oil, garlic and a hint of lemon. Both are easy to prepare and simply delicious! The spices come pre-measured and blended with simple instructions and recipes for suggested side dishes.
Here at Karen’s Spice Kitchen, we’ve been noticing the costs of EVERYTHING increasing lately. We’re sure you have, too. Many of the activities that we most look forward to during warmer months, like eating out or traveling, may not feel as accessible or doable these days – at least not as frequently.
For that reason, we’ve loved bringing exotic flavor right to the home by whipping up amazing restaurant-quality meals in minimal time, right in our own kitchen.
Making a meal that lasts a few days helps to save on the cost of gas that comes with driving to restaurants for each meal. Plus, research has shown that preparing food at home is much more cost-effective than eating out! If you find that certain ingredients, like meat, are more expensive in your area, you can simply reduce the portion and substitute with extra vegetables.
Save even more green by giving your green thumb a go, and growing your own veggies right in your backyard or on your back porch/balcony! Cut costs even more (and get tastier and more nutritious produce!) by supporting local and shopping your neighborhood farmer’s markets.
Check out these recent reviews from some of our cherished customers:
“Unbelievably delicious! This was my first time using these middle eastern blends, satay, veggie curry and chicken and chickpea curry. They were a gift from my sister. I followed the instructions up to simmering because I used a crockpot to finish the cooking. It was sooo delicious. I hope to learn to cook with these spices more regularly, but for now I will “cheat” with these mixes.”

“Wow! I can’t thank you enough for all the smiles your spices (Korma blend for chicken or lamb, Tikka Masala, Massaman and Butter Chicken) have brought to me. Look at this dish. It’s beautiful!!! I made this, thanks to you!!!! Thanks from everyone around my kitchen table.”

“We had the Mango Chicken Curry tonight, and it was absolutely delicious! It was so easy, all the blend of spices and heat was just right. I can’t wait to try the other blends that I ordered (Middle Eastern Burgers or Kabobs, Hungarian Paprika and Butter Chicken), and I was so impressed by the quality and flavors that I ordered several varieties as gifts to go in Easter baskets for my adult children! Good job, Karen!!”

Wishing you a most wonderful summer - full of family and friends, sunshine, joy and good health!
