Bookish Spices, Installment I

Happy Early Christmas to me!

Book Club Cookbook was kind enough to send a pre-holiday gift to EE.   For an honest review of the product, they were offering up a choice of two of their Bookish Spices.  I eagerly responded and awaited my two requested blends:  Joy Luck Rub (a salt free Mediterranean dry rub) and Of Spice and Men (Indonesian Korintje Cinnamon).

Clever and cute, right?

There is no recipe here, per se. We just added a bit of the Joy Luck Rub to some chicken breasts and grilled them. It was that simple. I whipped up a simple tomato sauce, cooked some fettuccine and made a salad. Dinner was served!

Really, I am not a spice blend fan.   But, the Joy Luck Rub is truly amazing.  It includes a mix of thyme, oregano, sage, basil, rosemary, garlic, lemon peel and black pepper.  I added nothing else to this chicken…no salt or pepper.   The spice blend was complete.   I even added a sprinkle to the pasta sauce which helped it tremendously.

This was a simple and delicious (truly) dinner.

What will I do with my bottle of Of Spice and Men?   Hmmm…..stay tuned.  It is the holiday season and a pie is in order!

Please check out these products.  Obviously, these would make great holiday gifts!
