Coffee Chili Rubbed Chicken

This post contains affiliate links, please read full disclosure HERE

I am a spice junkie. I have a drawer full of spices and herbs. Probably , a hoarder of spices. Last week I spent 45 minutes cleaning out our pantry and drawers. I am not surprise to find expired bottles of spices ( yikes! ). I also love to mix my own seasoning and spices. Homemade spices are awesome if you ask me. You can control the sodium content and it is budget friendly to boot. However , if you are not an "experimental" cook..like me, Rawspice Bar is an excellent way of getting superb flavor ANNND fresh spices and herbs.

Each monthly subscription includes recipes cards BUT you can always change it up to whatever is in your pantry already. That's also one of the many things I love about Rawspice Bar , the spices are not out of this world. I got fresh packets of flavorful spices and I was able to make 3 dishes out of it.

How does it work?

Sign up and receive 3 freshly ground, recipe-ready flavor kits, direct to your door each month. Add your own local, fresh ingredients to cook 3 globally inspired meals for 3-4 people. Plus, personalize your recipes with their Flavor Profile Quiz after you sign up!


 


 
Ingredients:

3 Boneless chicken breast
1 Rawspice Bar's Coffee-Chili Rubbed Steak Spice
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper


Directions:

Spread the olive oil on a 9x13 glass baking dish . Sprinkle the spice on top of it and mix.


 Pat the chicken dry and place it on top of the spices and oil mixture. Make sure that the marinade is spread all over the chicken. Cover and let it marinade for about an hour.


Bake on pre heated ( 350 degrees) oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until no longer pink.


Awesomely simple and full flavor!


Serve with Chipotle Salt Roasted Yams





Ingredients:

2 large yams
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1 Rawspicebar Chipotle Smoke Salt Spice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees . Cut them yams into cubes.


Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spread the cubed yams and pour olive oil, spreading the oil all over the yams. Sprinkle the spices all over the yams. 


Roast for about 20 minutes or until tender.


Right amount of sweetness and saltiness!

Cheesy Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Pasta

 This post contains affiliate links, please read full disclosure HERE.

Between work , carpools, school , extra curricular activities and family fun , I am sure that as a mom meal planning is always on your mind. What to serve for breakfast , lunch and dinner. Not to mention, school lunches. I am always on the hunt for easy weekday meals. Pizza and pasta may not always win the most the healthiest food category but it is definitely one of my family's favorites. Besides, who does not love pizza and pasta!

This recipe is flat out delicious! I used Rawspicebar's Sun-Dried Pizza Sauce and Pizza recipe. However, I used it on a pasta instead. What I love about this recipe is that you can make the sauce before hand. Making it ahead ( maybe on weekends) will save you time during the busy week days. The sauce is so tasty, you can not just use it as a pizza sauce but also as a pasta sauce or a dipping sauce. One of the things that I certainly love about the Monthly Spice Box is that recipe cards are included. So when you are not in a "experimental mood" you can follow the recipe given. I have previously written a review about RawSpice Bar ( recipes included), you can read it HERE.

The portion sizes of the spices are all perfect. Recipes are NOT hard to follow at all. If you love to eat out  and you are always open for new taste, why not try the monthly spice subscription.




Ingredients:

1 RawspiceBar's Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Spices
1 14.5oz tomato sauce
1 6oz tomato paste
2 garlic cloves , minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp  dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
 2 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper
1 package 3.5oz oz Turkey pepperoni
2 cups medium cheddar cheese
1 8oz Fit N Active wholewheat spaghetti noodles, or any brand.
2 eggs
1/4 cup low fat milk
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook spaghetti noodles according to package instructions. Drain.
Heat a medium size sauce pan with olive oil. Add in RawSpiceBar's Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Sauce Spice. Saute onion until translucent , add garlic. Cook until golden brown. Add the diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Add in dried basil and oregano. Add sugar to balance acidity.


Let it simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set the sauce aside.


In a bowl, beat the eggs. Pour milk and add the Parmesan cheese.


Grease a 9x13 glass pan.  Add the cooked noodles in and pour the egg mixture. Mix until combined.


Pour the sun-dried tomato pizza sauce over the noodles, top with half of the pepperoni. Sprinkle cheese on top and top with the rest of the pepperoni.


Bake the pasta for 25 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese melts.


Let it cool and serve with your favorite bread sticks! You can never go wrong with pizza and spaghetti. best of two worlds if you ask me.
