My Homemade Italian Seasoning Mix

Homemade Italian Spice MixNEW RECIPE: One day I was out of my store-bought Italian seasoning mix and needed some for dinner. I thought about changing out of my pajama bottoms and favorite T-shirt to go to the store but that sounded like more work than making spaghetti and meatballs from scratch. So I decided to try making my own spice mix. That was the last day I ever used store-bought Italian seasoning mix. I can’t explain why but the mixture I came up with was just…. better. It smells better, tastes better, and smells fresher. It may be because I use a lot of basil, which is super fragrant. I just put all the ingredients on a piece of wax paper and pour it into a small jar, shake well, and it’s done. Homemade always seems to be better, even for spices. (not so much for hair coloring!)

    Thanks for sharing. I’m trying to get my cooking act together. You are a big help. There are many products that we buy by habit. There’s no reason people can’t mix their own spices or even grow and dry their own herbs. Always a pleasure to see what you’re up to on your blog.

Have you ever used 100 percent grape seed oil in your baking? Supposed to be good for you – mine is from France – pompeian brand thanks!
