Southwest Essence Seasoning

My husband and I were laughing today recalling my early years cooking. I have always been able to cook, but with 5 kids and a busy schedule working full time and being a full time student, I had to learn to a lot of quick meals. There was not much gourmet in our early years. My husband used a lot of hot sauce to add a spicy kick to his dishes. I am proud to say we don't buy too much hot sauce anymore. 
I have been making this seasoning for years. I keep it on hand for anytime I make seared Ahi or a seared steak for my Man. It is a great addition to any cajun dish as well. It is the perfect way to add a little kick to any dish.  

Romantic Tip:
 Find some common ground. Find things that you and your favorite love person like to do together. It helps to make that bond even stronger. Go to a concert or a show. Go to a baseball game or an ice hockey game. Do you like movies, playing video games, going to wine tastings, going to markets and window shopping, dancing? Do it! It's all about having fun together.
