Read on to find out what we brought home with us ... We were thrilled to find a used copy of Deborah Madison's The Savory Way ($4), a small-but-heavy mortar and pestle ($8), and two varieties of Mexican spice mixtures – one chile lemon and one "specialty mix" ($7 a pound).
It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. When we got home, we had a lot of fun trying out our spices on some grilled pita bread. Our favorite was a combination of the chile lemon, the specialty mix (think sweet paprika, salt and garlic), Mexican oregano and toasted sesame seeds. Yum.
