Cooking with Seasonings

Welcome to the After Work Cook. Sometimes all you need is a good seasoning. If you work all day, you most likely do not want to come home and cook for hours. And if you are in a hurry a simple meal can be enhanced but a good rub or seasoning. So today, let's talk Seasoning.

I have three seasoning recipes I make from time to time. They last two to three months depending, of course, on how mush I use them. I have an Italian Seasoning, I tend to use this the most. It can go into many things. Then I have a Rub mix that I use on everything from salmon to steak. I will also use this in other things, soups, etc. And the third one I use is a Cajun seasoning, I use this for Jambalaya, fish, soups and the list goes on.
