Spice Girl


Savory Spice of Colorado is my favorite place to buy spices. The Johnstons’ opened their first store in Denver and recently opend a second in Boulder. Fret not, they also have a fantastic website that features wonderful recipes and all kinds of ways to use their concoctions. One of my favorites is Capital Hill Seasoning. I use it for my whole roasted chickens and on fingerling potatoes. One of their recommendations is to mix 1 Tbsp. into 1 cup of sour cream to make a great crudite sauce. Their other signature products include roasted granulated garlic and onion  – which I use on anything I roast .  I also love the tomato powder and freeze dried lemon zest. www.savoryspiceshop.com


Here is a basic recipe for Marinated & Grilled Summer Squash

2 Tbsp. Capitol Hill Seasoning from Savory Spice
1 tsp. Roasted Granulated Garlic from Savory Spice
2 – 3 Tbsp Sunflower Oil
5 Medium Summer Squash, cut into thick strips

Preheat grill or start charcoal. Add Capital Hill Seasoning and Roasted Granulated Garlic to a large mixing bowl whisk with oil. Toss well with Squash.

Grill until well marked and crisp-tender, about 3 – 4 minutes each side.  Serve hot, warm or at room temperature with with pesto and fresh garden tomatoes.

Ahhhh, summer bliss!
