Johnny Pizza Kale & Sausage Soup

Posted by Wine & Spice on 10/29/2015 to Italian

I adore the cooler weather and making soups from scratch!  It is so healthy and fresh!  I have been playing around with different spices and found that Johnny Pizza is amazing not only in soup, but for all my Italian dishes.  The crushed red pepper adds just a little heat and the mix of Mediterranean oregano, basil, garlic, onion, thyme, fennel seed, red bell pepper, parsley and marjoram is an amazing combination!


I served this soup with crostini.


A glass of Chianti pairs so well with this meal.


Buon appetito

Fall is apple time! This is such a pretty dessert and it is so easy to make. Trending this fall is mini desserts. This will be a great addition to your holiday table!


New Hudson Apple Pie Spice is a fabulous combination of Saigon Cinnamon, Ginger Root, Allspice, Nutmeg and Cardamom. Smells like the holidays! This is a bakers new best friend!


You can use any apple you like in this recipe, I used Honey Crisp, a personal favorite.


We served this with vanilla ice cream and an additional sprinkle of New Hudson Apple Pie Spice! So good!

Espresso Braised Brisket

To celebrate our family's October birthdays, and there are many, I decided to make a Espresso Braised Beef Brisket to feed a large group of family and friends. Mark’s Espresso Rub is amazing on beef! I rubbed the Mark’s Espresso on the night before. It sat in the fridge and dry marinated overnight. Let me just say that there was not a morsel of brisket left!


I made sandwiches for my meal. But, you can prepare the same way and serve thinly sliced with mashed potatoes! So good!


We enjoyed a mug of ice cold Pumpkin Ale with this meal!

Guacamole Spewing Pumpkin

Who doesn’t love Halloween! Fall is such a fabulous time of the year to have fun! Guacamole is a favorite to serve at parties and MSC’s Aunt Nee’s Guacamole Spice Mix contains all that you need to make yours spectacular! It is made with onion, chili powder, garlic, cilantro, sea salt and lime juice.


A great tip if you are not using your guacamole immediately is to place avocado pits into the mix and cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in fridge. This will help prevent browning you guacamole for a few extra hours!


We enjoyed mug of Pilsner with this meal!

Honey Chipotle has quickly become a staple in my kitchen. I adore the sweet & spicy (though not hot) combination! It can take the ordinary and make it spectacular!


Today I decided to try it on Shrimp and Polenta. So fabulous, such great flavor. I truly makes your mouth sing… Very layered flavors but even the picky will love this.


This is a South of the Border spin on a traditionally Italian dish.


We enjoyed glass of Sauvignon Blanc with this meal!

Espresso Rubbed Tenderloin

I really enjoy cooking heartier meals this time of year. As much as I love salads, something hot really hits the spot. I have found another spice blend that has become a family favorite, Mark’s Espresso Rub. It imparts such beautiful flavor, a hint of coffee, a little sweet and a little heat! This would work wonderfully on truly any meat or poultry. I used it today on a pork tenderloin. Try it, you won’t regret it!


I served this with a simple smashed potato, Au Jus and some steamed vegetables.


We enjoyed glass of Merlot with this meal!

New Hudson Apple Blossom

Posted by Wine & Spice on 10/5/2015 to Sweets

One of my favorite things about Fall is enjoying the abundance of harvests. Apples are at their best this time of year. This recipe is really easy to make and quick to cook. MSC New Hudson Apple Pie Spice is a wonderful blend of Korintje Cinnamon, Allspice, Nutmeg, Ginger Root and Cardamom. My family absolutely loves the flavors this spice blend brings to all our apple desserts! I will also be posting pear and plumb desserts using this blend! It is so versatile!


You can use any type of apple you like. I recommend firm over soft apples. You can also choose to peel your apples or not. We like the flavor of the apple peel.


We served our blossoms with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A tasty treat any day of the week!


We enjoyed a cup of Mexican Coffee with this dessert!
