Obsession: Spicing It Up!

The Midwest has a longstanding reputation for baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet. And while this is all good and well, I’m going to go out on a limb and add The Spice House to this prized mix. When I moved from the Midwest, I didn’t realize how much I relied on these cherished merchants to perk-up my meals: My pork chops disappeared more quickly when massaged with the Historic Pullman Pork Chop Rub, my beer can chicken became more savory when slathered with their Herbs de Provence, and my chili was richer and more complex when fortified with The Spice House chili powder. Now, with online ordering, my family and my meals will never have to go without again!

Not only am I able to order my favorite spices and rubs online, The Spice House website describes each spice or blend in detail, including region, popular uses, a dab of history, and links to complimentary recipes. In addition, they also provide themed gift boxes and suggestions. Whether you’re looking for that perfect “season’s greetings” gift idea or you simply want to spice-up your life, The Spice House will provide. Details:

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts. Her obsession with finding the new, innovative, and quirky is the impetus behind this site. Leah lives with her two sons and husband in North San Diego County.
