Moms Who Love to Cook Will Love the Gourmet Seasonings or Salt Collections from The Spice Lab This Mother's Day (Review)

The Spice Lab - Cooking Inspiration

I don't know about you, but I love being in the kitchen cooking up new and family favorite dishes to share with my family and friends.  Maybe it's my Italian roots and growing up watching the women in my life whip up amazing foods with lots of flavors, for everyone to enjoy around the table.  I can still hear my Nana saying, "Don't forget to add a little seasoning to your dish...a little pinch of this and a little pinch of that will go a long way."  :-)  I learned so much from my Nana and mom when it comes to cooking, and have even added Spanish dishes to my repertoire, as my husband is from El Salvador, and I had his mom and dad give me a few cooking lessons and recipes back when we first got together. I guess his mom thought he would lose out all his favorite Latin dishes as I would only be cooking Italian and American dishes. But, thanks to my love of cooking, which my mom and Nana instilled in me at an early age, and that I get to share with my two girls, the kitchen is my happy place, and I love trying out new cooking tools, accessories and spices...spices being a favorite of mine! 

So, when the folks at The Spice Lab reached out to see about sampling one of their seasoning collections, and include in my Mother's Day Gift Guide, I jumped at the opportunity.  I had heard about this brand, and even visited their website a few times prior, but I never had a chance to try out their product firsthand..that was until now.  I was recently sent their Taste of America Seasoning Collection, which consists of four different products, all of which will add flavor and flair to your home cooked meals.  You don't have to be a pro in the kitchen to add a kick to your favorite family dishes, when you reach for these seasonings.

The Spice Lab Seasoning Collection - Ultimate Culinary Gift Set - 

Perfect for All Around Cooking-Taste of America Gift Set

The Taste of America Gift Set includes 4 Shaker Jars  consisting of the following: Chicago Chop Seasoning, Key West Seafood Seasoning, Fiery Southern Charm & Everything and More Seasoning.

  • Chicago Chop - The perfect blend for pork, beef, and chicken. Chef Fiona’s Corner: Super savory and smoky, this seasoning blend really brings out the best in pork. Toss chicken wings with a little oil and this blend before baking in a hot oven. For a more intense flavor boost, let the seasoned meat rest for 30 minutes or refrigerate overnight before cooking.
  • Everything and More - A perfect seasoning for meats, fish and vegetables. Chef Fiona’s Corner: The possibilities are endless with this toasty topping. Slather crackers, toast or celery sticks with cream cheese and top with Everything and More. Try on halved soft-boiled eggs for a quick party appetizer. It’s great on buttered popcorn, roasted vegetables and your favorite salad.

  • Key West Seafood - Flavorful blend of onion, garlic, thyme, parsley and other spices. The Spice Lab's rubs are carefully blended to enhance the flavor of your favorite sea food and fresh water fish. An excellent spice mix to use on grilled or baked salmon, scrumptious shrimp kabobs or even as a secret ingredient in crab cakes. Try as a tasty seasoning for trout, catfish or perch.Grill, broil, bake or pan fry as usual. For a fish fry, use the rub as the spices in your dry breading mixture. Dip pieces of cod or other white fish in a batter of milk, buttermilk or beer and then dredge in seasoned flour, cornmeal or cracker crumbs.

  • Fiery Southern Charm - An all-around multipurpose seasoning. Chef Fiona’s Corner: Smoky and spicy, this blend adds a little sass to any dish. Try sprinkling on deviled eggs or celery sticks spread with cream cheese. Season flour to dredge fried chicken. Spice up potato salad or coleslaw. Try it on French fries in place of salt.


I really like the assorted seasoning blends you get with this Taste of America Gift Set.  And, at under $30, it is a great way to experiment with new seasonings in the kitchen, as well as gift a set to that special foodie in your life, including your mom (or even yourself!).  

Thanks to this seasoning gift set, I have had an excuse to cook extra dishes in the kitchen, and now my husband has lunches for the entire week. :-)  From smoky and spicy chicken breast thanks to the Fiery Southern Charm seasoning, to Chicago Chop for that little extra smoky yet savory flavor to my pork chop dish, my house has smelled amazing, with each and every dish I have cooked up and added a pinch here and there of these seasonings from the Taste of America Collection from The Spice Lab.

There are so many great seasoning gift sets, as well as salt sets available from The Spice Lab.  Make sure you give yourself time to look through each and every product listing, as there are so many great products that you will want to have handy in the kitchen.  I found myself putting together a wish-list recently of their products, in hopes to drop hints to my husband to get me, when my birthday rolls around.  :-)
