Spice Is Nice.

The problem with any gift guide, just about, is that there's a limit you have to consider.  Space has a way of being just a little too tight to fit everything in.  That's all right, though -- since the wonder of the Internet gives us the power to include more right here in the ether.

And what's a holiday without a little spice?  A couple of suggestions on the spice front for ya.

For one, if you’ve ever had a Hubcap Burger out in Scott at the Mercantile or in-town at Cotham’s in the City, you’ve brushed elbows with the fabulous Cotham’s Hamburger Seasoning. Well, that's one of those great things you can take home with you.  Enjoy the peppery goodness on your burger (or even fries!) in your own home with this simple yet strangely elegant spice blend.  It's $4.95 for six and a half ounces… that’ll go pretty far. ONLINE: www.cothams.com. PHONE: (501) 370-9177. STORE: 1401 West Third in Little Rock or right on Highway 161 in Scott. PICKUP: Gifts of Arkansas, River Market Grocery.

For two, there's one nice spice that just screams "Arkansas" from the cabinet.  That'd be Cavender's Greek SeasoningSo popular, no Southern kitchen really should go without it. The Greek seasoning is so pervasive in my family, a steak without had better have a good excuse for existing. Peppery without being spicy, it brings a familiar and robust flavor to beef. Try it with lemon juice on catfish, or better yet in gravy.  Runs about $2.25 for 3.25 ounces retail, or order it to be shipped to the one you love at $15.50 for a four pack. ONLINE: www.cavendersseasoning.com. PHONE: (870) 741-9566. PICKUP: Almost any self-respecting Arkansas grocery store.
