Health Benefits of Turmeric Powder + Must Try Turmeric Recipes

Turmeric powder is one of my favorite spices especially for the Fall. It has a subtle flavor, but what I like almost more than the flavor is it's vibrant golden hue and endless list of health benefits. It's one of the primary components of curry powder...another one of my favorites. Turmeric is more commonly used in savory dishes, especially Asian inspired dishes -- but it can also be served sweet, as in turmeric milk or ice cream!
