I recently found out that I was selected to go on a trip to Seattle to be in a cooking video for the McCormick spice company! Because I'm an Allrecipes Brand Ambassador, the Allrecipes staff submitted my info along with several other brand ambassadors, to the McCormick people. Then the McCormick staff chose me and three other ladies to particapate in their cooking video. We will all be flown to Seattle, that's one of the locations of Allrecipes.com, where we will then film a series of 3 videos. The first video will feature me cooking a specific recipe using McCormick's new spice product called 'Gourmet Recipe & Seasoning Mix'. I made the 'Sweet Basil & Oregano Bruschetta Chicken', served over spaghetti. I was sent a very generous amount of this new line of spices shown in the photo below, along with my finished dish!
I'm so happy to say that it was DELICIOUS! I'm not just saying that because of my business endeavor! It was truly tasty...my family loved it! It tasted very much like a meal from a high end restaurant! Lots of robust flavors from this little spice packet! I loved the way my home smelled while it was cooking also! Everytime one of my family members walked in the door they said " Mmmmm...what's cooking!" What is also so great about these spice packets is that you just need to add a few common ingredients to have a great meal! For this dish I just had to add olive oil, tomatoes, chicken, balsamic vinegar and pasta! If I didn't like this product I would not blog about it! I would have just gone on my nice little trip and not mentioned a word! But this is most definitely worth mentioning! I will be buying many more of these gourmet spice packets in the future!
