    Beautiful set of spices. It is baking and canning season, so my spice cabinet has been taking a hit on things like rosemary, cayenne, mustard, cinnamon, allspice, and ginger. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway.

  9. I was just telling the hubby the other day I need to make a list of spices that I'll have to replace, since we left them ALL for the Veterans to have when we moved from PA to WA. The spices I use most are cinnamon, cloves, chili powder, garlic powder, cardomom, rosemary, thyme, ginger and allspice - what I'm missing most (that I haven't been able to find to replace yet) is Summer Savory. :) Thanks so much for the giveaway! :)

  30. I love trying and using new/different spices.While stationed overseas with my then AD/USAF hubby, was introduced to so many spices (Azores, Greece, UK), and I still use them if I can find and/or afford them. Would love to win these, they would certainly be put to use. Will also share with my close friends, as we all enjoy sharing dishes with each other. I am a fan of Cooking Planit, as well as yours. Love Cumin, Curries, Paprika, and like to mix up my own seasoning jar.

  61. I basically like to use garlic powder, pepper and Italian spices, but the reason I need to win the spice set is because I need it so I can experiment and learn about all of the different flavors you can create when you have so many different ones available to you. I currently am lacking the funds to make such a purchase and this set would be a much-needed and joyous welcome addition to my kitchen and semi-bland food. I can cook, but I don't have the spice part down.
