Today we introduce you to a new flavor that is sweeping So Cal and will be soon sweeping the nation.

Spikerspice is a spice that is suitable for every type of dish. Just ask our good friend Brent, himself, who is the spice master and co-founder.

Holy Heatwave! Southern California is absolutely nuts with this dry heat and crazy winds. Now that I am recently self-employed I have been spending my first week of freedom melting in my house. I was tempted to go to Barre class twice in one day because it was a nicely air conditioned environment. I would have really regretted that one. I can only do so much shaking and pulsing…

by Chrissy

Pepita Crusted Tilapia with Cilantro Potatoes_LYK5

These cilantro smashed potatoes were a complete accident but now happen to be a new favorite dish. They are like mashed taters but not super rich and creamy, but super flavorful with a kick of spice so they pair perfectly with this lightly breaded fish.

You could certainly serve this Tilapia with a side of roasted veggies, if you are trying to eat a lighter meal, but you’ll be missing out on all the fun!

These carnitas have been a long-time coming. Chris asks for them every time I ask what he wants for dinner. Had I realized how simple they were I would’ve appeased him long ago!

Not only are these a one-pot wonder – you just need a couple of hours around the house to watch them – but they also have so few ingredients! It’s also an extremely inexpensive meat to buy. I call that a win-win-win.
