These Spice Blends Help to Repair the World

Raise your hand if you’re running out of ideas for what to cook for dinner?

WHAT? You, too?!

Nobody needs to remind you that we are the eighth month of this Covid-19 pandemic. If you’re like me, you’ve made your favorite recipes one too many times and you’re looking for inspiration. Really, desperate for inspiration.

That’s why I’m thrilled to share my passion for Meet My Kneads® spice blends. Suddenly new ideas are coming easily every time I pop open the lids and inhale these bright and fragrant blends.

Meet My Kneads® spice blends provide a whole flavor story in each jar. Their labels are Jewish/Yiddish plays on words that will light up a smile each time you reach for them.

These blends are grouped as either sweet or savory so you can hone in on what you like best. Or purchase all eight and get to know them like the new best friends you’re about to meet. They’re perfectly balanced, gluten-free, pure, vegan and kosher.

I’m crazy about these blends and equally impressed to learn that Susie Fishman, founder and creative, is on a mission. Best part is, that in addition to elevating your cooking, Fishman’s generosity makes it easy to do good as you cook more creatively.

Mitzah accomplished!

If you weren’t aware that there are hungry students on American college campuses, you’re not alone. Fishman, California entrepreneur, is the mom of three recent college grads. Like many of us, she was stunned to learn that food insecurity, a lack of access to affordable, nutritious food, affects more than 1/3 of American college students.

Shocked? Me, too.

Please click on the links, above, to learn more about these two student run organizations and the the impact they’re making.

When Fishman and I spoke, my mind began racing with ways to use these spice blends. I promptly ordered all eight of them so I could begin to play.

At $7.00 a jar (all glass, no plastic) or $25. for a boxed set of any four,  I can’t think of a better gift to share. Meet My Kneads® blends are a win/win for the recipient (why not gift yourself?) and you’ll know you’ve done your part in raising awareness to combat food insecurity on campuses across the USA.

On the sweet side (and who isn’t baking more these days?) there are four blends, including the Ungapatchke Challah® blend Fishman uses as a regular topping for her challah. See recipe below.

Cinnamon Shtik®, Chai is Chai® and Bubbe’s Bakery® are all blended to elevate your baking. But don’t stop there. If you like chocolatey coffee add a teaspoon of Bubbe’s Bakery® to your morning brew. More chocolate in your chocolate souffle? Check!

Make frostings, cake batter, cookie dough more densely chocolate with the same or chose Chai is Chai® for your apple cake, muffins, Thanksgiving sides or cookies. It’s delightfully sophisticated with cardamom, black pepper, fennel and nutmeg among other flavors.

On the savory side I’ve fallen hard for Zayde’s BBQ® blend. Last night, I peeled and sliced sweet potatoes,  tossed them in Global Gardens EVOO and this slightly spicy blend of chili, garlic, pepper, lemon and more. This blend may be intended as a chicken or meat rub but these crispy sweet potatoes are going into our weekly rotation.

Meshuga for Mexican® is my next savory fave but really, don’t make me choose from the four. What can I say? Avocado toast will never leave my top five favorite breakfast foods and Meshuga for Mexican®, with a bright blend of cilantro, coriander, lemon and garlic brings breakfast (or rice or potatoes) to a whole new level.
