The nice folks over at Market Spice sent us their “For SpiceSake 100 Anniversary Cookbook” for review. This is a great cookbook. Has lots of color pictures to show ya just how amazing the foods and drinks look. Hubby and I were almost drooling reading this cookbook. Such innovative recipes. We gave some of the recipes in the Market Spice 100 Anniversary Cookbook ” For SpiceSake” a try while we were on vacation. Check em out.We used the Greek Seasoning in both recipes. and created a really tasty meal. I have to admit that cooking was a bit of a challenge without my home kitchen. I was at a serious loss without my gadgets and utensils. This place didn’t even have a sharp knife. We made Mediterranean Capellini with Prawns, Feta and Cherry Tomatoes and Greek Garlic Bread. The table was silent during our meal as everyone was to busy stuffing their faces to speak. When words did come they were all full of praise and will you make this again? Can’t wait to try out some more of these great recipes and spices.They even have a number of truly unique recipes with teas. I love tea. Market Spice has an incredible variety of teas available.
They Sent Me:
Zingy cinnamon with subtle sweetness from the Red Bush and citrus undertones. Yum. Smells like Christmas
Cinnamon-Orange Rooibos in a 24-ct Teabag Box. African Redbush (Rooibos) is a shrub with needle-like leaves grown only in South Africa.

It is also naturally caffeine free. Ingredients: Organically grown African Redbush (Rooibos), Orange Peel, Cloves and Cinnamon(N/A)-Orange flavoring.
This is some really excellent tea. You get that true vanilla bean flavor. They named this one perfectly. Smooth and delicious.
