The spice company, McCormick, has a relatively new line of combined spices that has caught my eye. They are called Recipe Inspirations and come with pre-measured spices and a recipe card that shows you everything you need for a particular dish. I have tried two of their packages; Asian Sesame Salmon and Chicken Marsala. Both were easy to prepare and very tasty. They have quite a few types, but the store I go to only carried a few.
Since I generally have quite a few spices on hand, I primarily bought them for the recipe at first. I really consider them waste because of the excess packaging that is involved, but these can be really useful if you are a new cook and not used to cooking with spices, have no more than the obligatory salt and pepper on hand, or want to try something new. If you have a large spice collection then after the first go-round you can just use the recipe card and do the meal again. Unfortunately they don’t have the recipes online but I can rationalize buying the package just for the recipe knowing that if it does not turn out the way I like, I can always not use the card again, or make small adjustments to the recipe as I see fit and I don't have a lot of excess stuff around.
Overall I give this product a big thumbs up. It helps new cooks experiment with different ways to prepare meals, it encourages the use of fresh ingredients, and it is quick and easy to use.
