Ah, we are all in the teetering month of “May-be we can finish school this month, or May-be we have to go into June.”  The days are growing longer, and our schedules are filling up with all kinds of outdoor to-do’s, venues, and menus.   The end of this month marks the kickoff of summer gatherings with friends and family as we remember our military heroes on Memorial Day.  Whether you’re a host or a guest, the outdoor grill is fully ablaze, and you hope your dish to pass is simple, flavorful, and abundant. Tis the Season wants to help you in that quest! Our full line of spice blends is perfect for adding flavor to any grilling expedition, many with multiple purposeful options.  Roasted Herb Rub, Coffee Rub, and Garlic Seasoning are fabulous on all prime cuts of beef, pork, and/or chicken.  Our Vegetable Dip is a perfect appetizer with any vegetable or fruit for the kids.  The Onion Soup Mix can be used as a soup or on my family’s favorite sausage, pepper, & potatoes one-skillet meal (this month only, I will include the recipe with every purchase!). Just look at those savory potatoes, rich with turmeric spice.  Then, there is our hottest blend yet: Bacon Chili Cheddar Dip. This is one of the most versatile dips on the list!  The cayenne pepper adds a little heat to it, but it’s nothing anyone (including kids) will need to run from.  Simply add sour cream and mayo to just two tablespoons, and you’ll have an instant delight […]

    Tis the Season NY’s Easter Bundle!

Tis the Season NY’s Easter Bundle!

Hello, Friends! Holiday celebrations and traditions are some of my favorite events with my family, and Easter is no exception. We enjoy the nicer weather, and although we change up the activities from games and movies to nature walks, one thing still remains traditional: our Easter feast. As I’m sure you can imagine, one of my loves in life is providing home-cooked meals for my family, and this year, I’d like to help you do the same with an offer to help with your main course, your dessert, and a simple way to liven up leftovers. Here’s how… One thing I have come to learn over the years is that the main protein is the star of the meal. Without it, the sides are just not enough (just ask my family about the years I’ve made not-so-fabulous meals because I over- or undercooked the main course). However, with Tis the Season’s Pineapple-Cherry Jam, a delicious combination of pineapple, maraschino cherries, and brown sugar, all you have to do is spread it over the top of your ham (or any pork, for that matter) and forget it. There is no easier way to add flavor, color, and texture! Plus, you will not have the added dilemma of keeping the pineapple slices from falling off the ham, leaving the entire flavor at the bottom of the pan.  One jar of jam will easily provide all of the added flavors needed for any ham up to 20 lbs. throughout the basting process, and the […]
