Reviews & Giveaways

The author received sample products to facilitate this review/giveaway. Other than enhancing the author’s meals, no other compensation was received.

With the school year gearing up, and more time on my hands, I cook more often. It feels more enjoyable when the kids are not belting out demands for their favorite meals and I get the chance to get creative. Although I only buy chicken or turkey – no red meat for us! – it doesn’t get old. I can spice up our life with McCormick!

McCormick offers a variety of spices that let me mix it up. Grilled, baked, or sautéed, McCormick spices  enhance the flavor of our meals.

Recently, I received a gift basket with samples spices and was wowed by the variety. One of my favorites was the McCormick Grill Mates Slow & Low Tennessee Smokehouse BBQ Rub.  I applied it to chicken,  let it sit overnight, and grilled it to perfection. Easy peasy and amazingly good!

I’m excited to say two (2) Latina On a Mission readers will have the opportunity to win their own McCormick gift basket (Retail Value: $50 each) by entering the Rafflecopter giveaway below. Giveaway ends September 11, 2013 at 12:00 AM (Eastern Time) and is open to US residents.
