Make Your Own Seasoning Mixes in Your Apartment by The Villages, FL

The kitchen of each PepperTree apartment home is well-equipped for cooking and holding all your favorite foods, thanks to spacious pantries, oversized cabinets, and large refrigerators. So those who like to cook can truly enjoy making delicious meals from scratch. Sometimes a recipe may call for a seasoning that is actually a blend of different spices, such as Italian seasoning. Instead of purchasing these seasonings pre-mixed, it’s possible you already have all or some of these herbs on hand so you can make your own blends. Here are some popular seasoning mixes you can create:

  • Italian seasoning – Mix together 2 tablespoons basil, 2 tablespoons oregano, 2 tablespoons rosemary, 2 tablespoons marjoram, and 2 tablespoons thyme. You can also add 2 tablespoons of red pepper flakes for some spice, and 2 tablespoons of garlic powder, but if you’d rather use fresh garlic in your recipe, the garlic powder can be skipped.

  • Taco seasoning – Mix together 2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 ½ teaspoons paprika, 1 ½ teaspoons cumin, 1 teaspoon onion powder, ¾ teaspoon garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and a dash of cayenne pepper.

  • Cajun seasoning – Mix together 2 ½ teaspoons paprika, 1 ½ teaspoons chili powder, a few dashes of cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like it), ¼ teaspoon black pepper, ¼ teaspoon oregano, ¾ teaspoon thyme, and 1 teaspoon salt.

One of the best things about creating your own seasonings in your apartment by The Villages, FL, is that if there is one particular spice you really like or are not fond of, you can adjust the recipe accordingly for ideal results.
