Spice Blends to Spice Things Up

Grilled chicken coated in the Babblin' Babs "Greek" herb blend.

That’s exactly what Chef William Mueller of Babblin’ Babs Bistro in Tacoma, WA wants to help you do.

Owner of a five-year-old restaurant named for his late-Mom, Mueller just launched a line of all-natural, salt-free, sugar-free, MSG-free, gluten-free spice blends to give your everyday cooking an easy punch of flavor.

His six blends include: “Everyday,” “Greek,” “Lonestar,” “New Orleans,” “Thai” and “West Indies.”

Recently, he sent me a sampler of each to try.

Samples of the six herb blends.

The “Greek” was fabulous to coat chicken thighs in no time at all to go on the grill. Its savory blend of oregano, garlic, lemon peel and orange peel added a nice Mediterranean flair to the crisp chicken skin.

The “New Orleans,” with its garlic, onion, white pepper and cayenne, can pack a punch if you use a lot of it. I can’t wait to try the “West Indies,” with its ginger, allspice and curry, mixed with a dab of vanilla extract for a marinade for chicken, as Mueller suggested.

The blends are available in jars for $12.95 each.

    Oooh these spice rubs look just terrific. I’m definitely into the Greek one – we just came back from our first trip to Greece and I’m hooked on the food! Those flavors bring me right back.

    I’d be curious about the Thai blend.

    These sound great! And great for when you just feel like having an easy dinner! :)

    Very creative combinations!! I love the fact that these spices can turn ordinary meat like chicken into something so delicious!

    I love a good spice rub for when I’m too lazy to make my own!

    I’d love to try the New Orleans blend – things like that aren’t really easily available around here.

    I love spice blends!

    I’m interested in trying out all of the blends especially the West Indies blend :)

  12. 12

    All the spice blends sounds good! I would not know which to pick if I can only choose one blend.

  13. 13

    It sounds so convenient, just like a fry chicken powder that all seasoning in one pack. But these spice blends are healthy and delicious. I think it go well with any meat or even fish fillet. Deep fry, grill, roast or pan fry, all will make a great dish with this spice packs. :)
