DIY Spice Mix: Garam Masala


This is the BEST spice mix! It's an Indian mix, and I find it adds just the right kick of flavor to otherwise simple dishes. The best part? Instead of spending $14 on a bottle from the store, you can make your own with spices you probably already have in your cabinet.

Garam Masala
Makes 1/4 Cup
Adapted from allrecipes

1 tbs cumin
1.5 tsp coriander
1.5 tsp cardamom
1.5 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
0.5 tsp cloves
0.5 tsp nutmeg

Mix all spices together and store in an airtight container.

Here's a few of my favorite recipes that use garam masala:

Nautical



Daily Charms Scarf; JCPenney Chambray Top; Gap Factory Jeans; Thrifted Flats

Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend. We enjoyed a busy, but good Sunday with my sister's family and our church family. It was a beautiful 70 degrees and I soaked up every minute of it.

Isn't this the best scarf!? I won it in a giveaway and it's my new favorite. Who doesn't love a good nautical print?

Be The Way I Want To Go

I wore this yesterday in glorious 70 degree weather. Spring is here and I couldn't be happier.

I know I'm not the only one, but spring has me in full on cleaning and organizing mode. When we moved last fall, a lot of things just sort of got put in one spot...and 6 months later, they're still there. We've been working on remedying that the last few days, as well as tackling projects around our fixer-upper that have been sitting all winter. Like taking down the fan that's in the corner of our living room. Yep. In the corner (we have no idea).

Happy Monday.

I wore this to a brunch a few days ago. It was one of those weird social situations where I only knew the hostess and quickly discovered that the other guests were...ahh...not my cup of tea, shall we say? I stayed long enough to get some fritatta and coffee, then I skedaddled out of there to meet up with my husband. Hanging out with him is more fun. :-)

Back at it today after suffering a terrible 24 hours without my computer. The case as been breaking apart by the hinge and every time I open it it gets a little worse. So Jeremy took it all apart and hopefully it's better now. Provided I stop dropping it, I suppose.

How has your week been? Jeremy's work schedule changed this week so he's now off Mondays and Tuesdays. Which feels so weird. I thought it was Saturday all day. We got to go out and take advantage of $5 movie Tuesday at our local theater and I got some goods at Sally Beauty to try my own gel manicure at home. Which I'm going to do as soon as I hit publish on this post.

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday.
