Yasmine’s notes:  My philosophy when it comes to using others’ things is to celebrate what makes them great. With Better Homes and Gardens’ original Tuscan Herb Blend, I’ve kept all of the ingredients and proportions the same here– simply adding my own family’s preference of smoked paprika, onion, black pepper, and salt to give an extra bold *punch* of warmth. Incidentally, my family has also reused an old herb bottle to store this mix as well! Keep a few bottles and jars of your own around, and it makes for an easy seasoning-blend carrier.
