Make Your Own Personal Spice Mix

Earlier, The Bachelor’s Kitchen talked about how spice mixes can really up the taste of dishes without adding salt or fat. There are plenty to choose from. One of the big brands is Mrs. Dash, a salt-free blend of seasonings and spices in a variety of tastes.

We’re a big fan of Mrs. Dash. But we use it less because we’re now creating our own spice blend. And you can do it, too. Take any combination of tastes you use frequently and make a blend of it. Here’s our current recipe:

The Bachelor’s Kitchen All Purpose Spice Mix


  • 2-1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 chicken bouillon powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder (not salt)
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Crush the bouillon cube into a fine powder and put it in a screw-top jar. Add remaining ingredients and shake until well mixed. Store in refrigerator for up to four months.

You can experiment with whatever combination you like. So, spice it up and enjoy.
