Cooler days of fall are now upon us and the warm kitchen fires once again start burning, which inspires us to search for new recipes to tantalize the palate. NOVO’s draw prize for October was a $50 “Spicy” gift basket of Epicure Spices.
Congratulations go out to Edith, who was thrilled with the delectable selection of spices to experiment with!!
In today’s rushed times, it often feels like the cook is on vacation, in part, thanks to fast and easy meal solutions ready in 20 minutes or less.

Food produced from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have had their DNA artificially modified through methods that could never occur in nature. Studies connect GMOs to health problems and environmental damage. In fact, most developed nations consider GMOs to be unsafe. That’s why more than 65% of Epicure products are Non-GMO Project Verified—and the list is GROWING. Epicure is a trailblazer in the Direct Sales Industry as one of the first companies to register with the project. Visit nongmoproject.org to learn more.
Concerned About Irradiated Foods?
Irradiated foods are treated with high doses of ionizing radiation to kill pathogens and extend shelf-life. There is disagreement in the food science community as to how irradiation affects the safety and wholesomeness of food. Some studies point to serious health consequences, and that’s why Epicure only sources non-irradiated ingredients.
