I've been hearing a lot about this fabulous spice store, Penzeys. I happened to run out of a number of basic staple spices at the same time, so I figured I'd check this place out. Turns out they have a store not too far from where I work, but they close really early and I wouldn't be able to make it in time. I decided to order from their website, dismayed at the thought of waiting 6-8 days for my box o' spices. Much to my surprise (and delight!), the box of goodies arrived in TWO days! (I think being close to their home state is key) :-)
I am absolutely in love with them... here's what I got:
Medium Hot Chili Powder
Ground Cayenne Pepper
Then some new things for me:
Herbs de Provence
Chinese 5 Spice Powder
The BEST part? They gave me a free 1.2 oz sample of their Southwest Seasoning! Also a copy of their latest magazine/catalog, that had a number of yummy recipes. If you are in the market for refilling some of your spice containers... definitely check them out!
