When I attended the International Food Blogger Conference in New Orleans, I made a lot of new foodie friends!  I felt like I had found my tribe and I can’t wait until next year’s conference!  Part of the event is a Live Food Social, which is basically speed dating for bloggers and brands.  Imagine the excitement and the flavors!

Basin Blend is one of the brands that I fell in love with at the Live Food Social!  This seasoning blend is to me the perfect taste.  I really can’t even describe it…just that it is the flavor that I’m always trying to create when I add spices to food.

I’m excited to announce that today’s recipe is the first of many to come in my collaboration with Basin Blend!  Click on www.basinblend.com/discount/thefiligreefig to order your own and get ready for one-step amazing flavor for your recipes!
