Mix Spices Together before Adding to Food!

When a recipe calls for several different spices, I find it is best to mix the spices together in a very small bowl before adding to recipe. Allows for consistent coverage of foods. There are certain combinations of spices that I use frequently. I have these premixed in their own spice jars.
