Hey Hey Hey, It’s A Cooking Planit Spice Giveaway!

A few months ago, I wrote about the Cooking Planit app and how I was actually able to cook the family a delicious meal with its help. Which is a huge accomplishment for me because I can’t even make toast that’s edible.


Cooking Planit gives you step-by-step, timed instructions that are voice activated so you don’t have to touch your iPhone or iPad with “meatball hands.” For my first meal, I picked Zesty Chicken, which was comprised of Sautéed Chicken Tenders with Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce, Grilled Crostini and Sautéed Garlic Spinach. And, despite doing a few dumb things like dropping a knife on my foot and starting a small fire, the food was all done at the same time and tasted amazing. My husband said it was the best thing I’ve ever cooked, which is saying a lot after being married for 20 years.

And now Cooking Planit is giving you all a chance to win a wonderful Spice set! Here are the spices that are included in the set, along with my moronic-can’t-cook-for-crap ideas about each one:

Ground Cumin – Perfect for um, cumin beef!

Basil – I worked with a guy named Basil once; he stole people’s lunches

Saigon – Wait, didn’t that fall? #Vietnamhumor

Cinnamon – Not just a stripper name!

Bay Leaves – I don’t think pandas eat these, but I’m not sure

Smoked Paprika – That sounds like a good spray tan shade!

Thyme – Something I don’t have enough of, am I right, ladies?

Garlic Powder – Teenage vampires, beware!

Mediterranean Oregano – Better than Midwestern Oregano

Onion Powder – Don’t use on your nose

Rosemary – Not just George Clooney’s deceased aunt!

Red Pepper Flakes – These are the guys who got kicked out of Red Hot Chili Peppers

Coriander Powder – Perfect for um, coriander beef!

Cayenne Pepper – Excellent secret yogurt topping for the mean PTO President

Ground Cloves – Probably not the kind you smoked when you listened to Depeche Mode

Chinese Five Spice – Not FOUR spice, FIVE spice!

Turmeric – I don’t know what this is, but it sounds badass

Curry Powder – Tiny, little bits of Ann Curry donated by NBC

Yellow Mustard – Personally, I like Fuchsia Mustard, but this is probably good

Plus there’s Nutmeg Powder, Pennsylvania Pepper, Cardamon Powder, Cajun Seasoning, Allspice Powder, Hill Country Chili Powder, Ginger Root Powder and Manzanillo Mexico Seasoning. I know! SO MANY SPICES!


Of course Cooking Planit has tons and tons of recipes and an excellent resident chef named Emily Wilson who has brilliant menu ideas for all of these spices.

TO WIN THIS SET, LEAVE A COMMENT TELLING US YOUR FAVORITE SPICE! (Note: Posh, Sporty, Baby, Ginger and Scary will not be accepted.) Contest ends on 3/27. Good luck!

And guess what? You can increase your chances with winning the Cooking Planit Spice Giveaway by entering one of the 50 other contests!
