Tasty Tuesdays {Homemade Seasoned Salt}

Hey, there!  Welcome back to Tasty Tuesdays!  

Today I'm sharing one of my fave kitchen ingredients: Homemade Seasoned Salt


If you're anything like me, you enjoy using seasoned salt on a variety of dishes: pot roast, vegetables, casseroles, and much, much more.  However, several  years ago I discovered that in lots of store-bought seasoned salt one of the main ingredients is ....sugar.  

Say what?!?!  

Yep, sugar.  Crazy, huh?  It's true though.  Just look in your spice cabinet and see if your brand is one of those sugar-adding culprits.  

As I'm sure you probably agree that sugar is not a necessary ingredient for seasoned salt, let's talk about how you can avoid that.  First, you could buy specialty seasoned salt, such as the one sold by Tastefully Simple.  It's very delicious, but also very pricey.  Or, secondly, you could make your own--because you probably already have all of the ingredients you need right there in your spice cabinet anyway!  Very cost effective!  And this stuff is just as bit as flavorful as the pricey gourmet kind!!


Here's what you need:

Homemade Seasoned Salt
6 Tbsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2-1/4 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. dried dill weed
1/2 tsp. celery salt
*****
Just dump all ingredients into a bowl and blend well with a whisk or spoon.
If you want a finer blend, just pulse it a few times in a food processor or blender.
Then funnel it into a spice jar or bottle.  (I just use a recycled spice jar--to fill a 
jar this size {6.75 oz} just double this recipe).


I've been making this for quite a few years now and we love it!  It's way better than the store-bought brands in my personal opinion.  Try it~I think you'll love it!

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
