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…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!

I recently had the chance to try out the "American Gluten-Free" food box. Here's the photo of what I received -
