Easy Weekday Breakfasts

I wish I could explain the reasoning behind this traditional spice mix as using 8 spices when it is clearly called Seven Spice Mix, but I have no real answer…What I do know, is that in my household it's a great thing to make a large batch of, and store in a container because of the Lebanese dishes I now make here. This spice mix has an amazing punch of flavor, and a little goes a long way to spice up any dish you might have....more
