TSP Spices Review and Giveaway

I was delighted for the opportunity to try Tsp Spices.
I'm usually not real good at working with spices.
They graciously sent me the Organic Orange Zest and the
The way it was packaged and the recipes that came with it made it so easy to use the spices, even for me!!
When I got the spices they came in the cutest little tins. I can't help but think how cute these would make for gifts! Each tin had 12 individual 1 tsp. spice packets plus recipes!
You can also find recipes here at their site.
**
First I tried the Organic Orange Zest. This tin had 12 - 1 tsp. packets of Orange Zest spice. One of the recipes simply said to add it to your hot cereal. So as I was having oatmeal one morning, I added 1 packet ( which is 1 tsp.) to my oatmeal. I wasn't sure about it but, it was delicious! It added so much, and I loved the Orange taste!
**
The second tin they sent me was called the Organic Roast to Toast. It had 12 packets but there were 6 different spices in it. It included 3 Orange Zest, 2 Ancho Chili Pepper, 2 Coriander, 2 Rosemary, 2 Thyme, and 1 Allspice.
**
I wanted to make a recipe called Ancho Chile and orange rubbed chicken but my local butcher was out of whole chickens 2 weeks in a row. I got tired of waiting and decided to use the spices on boneless skinless chicken instead. All I did was combine 2 packets of organic ancho chile, 2 packets organic coriander, and 2 packets organic orange zest. Mixed and added about 2 Tablespoons of olive oil. This made it kinda pasty and I just rubbed it on the chicken. I let it marinate a couple days and grilled it up! It was REALLY good! My daughter kept wanting more. I feel confident that the other recipe would be even better!
****
Tsp Spices was founded by a couple of Southern girls who wandered north, as they say it!
I think they sum up their company with these words...
We promise you vibrant tastes with organic spices that are free of additives and fillers and packaged to preserve their freshness. We also make them easy on your storage system and pleasant to look at when they’re on your counter
