Couscous - YOK blend of spices

When the whole house smells of spices her heart is full of joy. Ms Aitch roasts seeds and grounds into powder. Here a pinch there a tablespoon. Blessed she mixes the blend of spices and thinks about new recipes for couscous salads. 

Ms Aitch and Mr El use the blend of spices for their variation of couscous like this one with red cabbage or that one with cauliflower. It may be used for purposes other then intended.
