    Love making my own spice blends- why buy when you can adjust the flavors yourself?

    I love making my own spices. Besides being cheaper and healthier, you can customize and add things you like and leave out things you don’t. I love the idea of this Memphis rub. My husband would love it on ribs or steak. I wonder how it’d be on Tofu… delish I bet. It makes me hum the Mark Cohn tune, “Walking in Memphis”. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    I don’t often make my own spice blends, but I really don’t know why. You are right, it’s so easy and much more economical. I’ll have to give this one a try the next time I grill some pork! 🙂

      I can not believe how much I have been saving!!! Just not paying those outrageous prices has given me a little extra cash to spend in other areas! Plus I can make it as gifts for special occasion and dress it up in a fancy container .
