Do you make your own spice blends or do you use store-bought blends?

Honestly, I make my own blends most of the time. I made a fresh blend of ras el hanout spices for this dutch oven chicken recipe. Ras el hanout spice blend is from North Africa, commonly used in Moroccan recipes. If you can’t find it at a supermarket, try getting the spices apart and make your own blend.  It is one of my favorite spice blends. I’ve also used a similar blend to make the vegetable and veal tagine.

Here are 10 spice blends that you might find very useful for several kinds of dishes, including a recipe for ras el hanout.
