I went on a little shopping spree last week at Penzey's Spices and got some great new things. One of the items I snatched was Arizonas Dreaming. Its a blend of sweet and spice, just like me ;) It has cocoa in there as one of the ingredients, and balanced by jalapeño and other peppers.
Most of my creative imagination comes up when I try to pick out things I have in the fridge and figuring out what to make for dinner. I had a head of cauliflower, chicken, wine, pimento olives and a box full of new spices. I decided I was going to make "Arroz con Pollo." This recipe is great because it can easily be made non-paleo or paleo based on your preferences. Enjoy!
