Raw Spice Bar - Add a Little Spice to Your Life #SubscriptionBox


I was really interested in trying out the Raw Spice Bar subscription service. Although I don't use a whole lot of spices while cooking, I always like the challenge of trying something new.

What you can expect out of spice box is a very simple and easy process. You subscribe and when you do you get 3 to 4 ground spices that is enough to create three dishes for up to 12 people. You get three recipe cards (and can find more recipes online) and some history about the spice itself. Best of all, it's really inexpensive, you can purchase a subscription for $6.00/month.

Here's the spices I received below -

Saffron Threads
Mast-O-Khiar Herbs
Advieh Khoresh

This was part of their Persian spice box and it made me realize two things -

1) I really need to broaden my palate and start trying new cuisines for different reasons.
2) I'm not sure that broadening my palate should begin with me trying a very unfamiliar recipe!

I am not the most comfortable cook and the recipes included with these spices were pretty intimidating to me. So much so that I just haven't tried these spices yet!

But I want to give props to the more daring bloggers who did put in the effort to try something new and I want to recommend you take a look at the results of their meals. They do look good!

Overall, and based on subsequent monthly boxes of spices, I think this subscription service is perfect for the person willing to try brand new recipes, and wants to put in the time to make them and try them. This will definitely broaden your horizons if you are willing to take the risks! Visit their website at RawSpiceBar.com for more details.

Thank you to Raw Spice Box for providing me with this product in exchange for my honest review.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

The Best Gluten-Free Soup I've Had in a Long Time (And Giveaway]

​​​​​​​​ Since I've been gluten-free it isn't always to figure out easy lunch solutions. I'm not a huge fan of frozen options and I really don't think I've found the perfect, consistently amazing lunch time bread. And soups? Well, I haven't found my favorite soups yet either. Until now.
So I had the chance to try out Blount's Soups! I tried two different kinds - 
Tomato Bisque

Broccoli Cheddar



Here's what I thought:
The Good:
Theses soups are non-gmo, organic, and gluten-free. First, the tomato bisque. I found this tasted so good. I like when Tomato Soup is on the creamy side. And this was! I'm never a fan when tomato soup has more of a ketchupy, liquidy tomato flavor. But when it really tastes like a soup? Oh yum! 
For the Broccoli Cheddar, it may not have been as thick and creamy and cheesy as I usually love about Broccoli Cheddar, it was still really tasty. I just needed a bit more salt. 
The Not so Good
You know, not like I'm trying to avoid a…

Why You Should Buy Organic Coffee [and Giveaway]

I'm always on the organic route when I go into a grocery store, but I have only just recently heard that we really should be drinking organic coffee. I never really thought of this before and didn't realize the importance of choosing organic coffee until now.

One major reasons to drink organic coffee?

You avoid a good majority of the pesticides.

This is the main reason I choose organic produce. Did you know that coffee is known to be one of the most heavily sprayed crops? While many argue the roasting process eliminates the pesticide residue, this still doesn't leave warm feelings in my coffee pot about what the coffee bean could entail. (SOURCE)

It's also environmentally beneficial. Many conventional growers will clear out forests to make room for their crops. This eliminates natural pest killers like birds and other creatures and this leads to more pesticide use. Organic coffee is grown more naturally, maintaining the forest life in the surrounding area.
