Let's talk about Penzey's:

Just got a new catalog, and while I don't read the whole thing obsessively, it's much more fun than most. Does anyone have any favorite spices/blends there? Have you ever been to a Penzey's store? Tried their recipes?

I've been to the store once, and enjoyed myself a little too much. It's interesting that I can drop close to $50 on a bag of what is essentially (legal) powder. I absolutely lurve the Pizza Spice blend, which makes everything taste like pizza. A tablespoon of that in some crushed tomatoes makes the perfect pizza sauce with no cooking required.

(While recommendations for other spice/herb shops are welcome, please don't just come post negative comments about Penzeys - that's not what this discussion is about.)

I have also been to the Savory Spice store and still can't figure out what to do with the Tomato Powder I just had to have.
