I have searched for a column on various spice rubs and must-have condiments. A go-to for weeknight cooking. Very all-purpose and international.

I would love to make spice jars of mixes that were ready to go! If I mixed them myself, I would learn more about the ingredients, and If they were pre-prepped, I would use them daily. A break down of ethnicity and opportunity for use would be brilliant! Thanks for your wonderful website! I made my first purchase the other day for condiments, spreads etc. Loving it!

I love Mike Mills Magic Dust. I have it in a shaker next to my stove. I can't seem to paste the url, but if you Google "Magic Dust recipe", it pulls right up.

If your main interest is learning how to make spice rubs and learning the different properties of herbs & spices, consider Googling Lior Lev Sercarz. He owns a highly regarded spice shop in NY and wrote a book recently, so there are tons of good interviews and articles with his tips and tricks. I've heard good things about his book too but I haven't bought it yet. Please consider posting any good mixes you come up with though!

Debora, here's a spice blend that we use a couple times a month on chicken, fish and shrimp. It's really delicious. Let me know if you try it.
