I went to my first spice market, Penzeys Spices, a couple week ago in Overland Park, Missouri and it opened a whole new world of flavors and smells. A special Mexican seasoning for black beans, I had no idea. How about Herbs de Provence with actual lavender in it, gimme gimme. Shrimp Boil, I got it. The store had free recipe cards pared with special spices and very reasonable prices. Next time I’ll get bigger quantities than the sample sizes I bought so I can quit hiding them in the cabinet.
