Debbie and I (Drew) created Spice Spice Baby because we have a passion for great-tasting, flavorful food we want to share this with friends, family and anyone else who wants to be adventurous in their cooking.  We provide home cooks with an easier way to express their creativity in the kitchen, our spice blends are the tools they need to try new flavors and to explore new cuisines in the simplest way possible. We are also here for professional chefs and other culinary professionals who may want to keep those signature spice blends a secret or are looking for an easy way to save time, labor and resources. Whatever your culinary passions are, we can help keep you cooking.  


As a professional chef I was frustrated with the dry herbs and seasonings that I was finding in the store. The spices on the shelves at the grocery are up to three years old, the spice blends are full of additives and preservatives, the flavors are faded or artificial and the variety of flavors were generally lacking. What I wanted was a good restaurant-grade herb or spice without having to always use garden-fresh herbs.  Because of that frustration, I began testing and adapting my signature spice blends for home use. I have created dozens of blends and rubs during the more than two decades I’ve spent working in professional kitchens. Several of my BBQ rubs have been used in professional BBQ competitions and are award-winners, all of our spice blends are tried and true. Spice Spice Baby was born from necessity and is thriving because there are so many people who share our passion for quality and flavor.
