  1. My favorite seasoning is these little glass jars of Japanese spice from the Asian grocery store. It has flakes of seaweed, dried vegetable bits, a little wasabi and more. It dresses up a really plain dish. It’s great on rice or fish.

  2. I would hire a hair stylist. I love to cook, clean and drive but my hair is always a mess!


  3. My favorite spice/seasoning would have to be cinnamon. I like making home made beauty products and I tend to add just a bit of it to add that made at home touch. I also lo-o-ove! to put it in some of my food recipes as a secret ingrediant. Even if sometimes you can’t taste it, the hint of it in the smell is more than enough to drive people wild!

  4. What a beautiful prize package! I need those earrings, they are amazing and remind me of the paper crane story i read once. I would chose a hair stylist, because I never know what to do with my hair, and it’s usually just long and straight, it would be fun to try something new with it every day! Thanks πŸ™‚

  5. I love exotic spices, my favs are jasmine, saffron, and curry. They make everything taste magical.

  6. My favorite seasoning? Aside from the standard salt or pepper? Probably garlic or basil. However I’ve become a fan of cumin, too.

  7. My favourite spice is cinnamon. I also have a great curry chicken recipe that I love! Thanks for the giveaway. The earrings are beautiful!

  8. I would definitely hire the maid because I am hopeless at keeping things organized!

  9. I would hire a maid, because cleaning is about the one thing I don’t make enough time for. I love cooking–I stay home as much as possible, and seeing as I hate hairspray….

    A Maid:)

  10. Oh, I would hire a maid!! Can you even imagine having someone else clean up my clutter and possibly even help me stay organized?!! Of course, my mess might scare a maid off, I’m talking major clutter here!

  11. My favorite spice would be either garlic or vanilla……..depending on whether I’m eating the main course or dessert! LOL!

  12. I left a comment in the Merry Month of May…but am off to read all the other posts as well………..and no doubt comment everywhere! I just love that origami set….those earrings are so exquisite and I love the bookmarks and greeting cards.

  13. Cavenders. Don’t have any? get some. Never ever get the kind with no salt added. Get the orange and red container of Cavender’s Greek Seasoning

    * Perfectly Prepared Blend of 13 Ingredients !!
    * Cavender’s Greek Seasoning sits on the counter beside the salt and pepper in many homes !!
    * An Ancient Greek Formula !!
    * No Other Spices Necessary


  14. I can’t decide which I want more, a maid or a cook. I hate cooking, but my house needs help!

  15. I would love a maid – I am a bit of a perfectionist.
