    Question What seasonings to do you keep on hand?

    I'm noticing that everything I make tasts the same because I tend to use the same 4-5 seasonings in everything. I need some VARIETY!! Please share what you keep in your cupboards.

    Currently I have:

    Typically with savory dishes: dill weed, basil leaves, parsley leaves, rubbed sage, ground oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, dried minced onion, lemon pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, paprika, thyme, crushed red peper, black pepper.

    Typically with sweet things: nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa.

    Mixes: Lawry's Seasoned Salt, Montreal Steak Seasoning, Taco seasoning, bouillion cubes (chicken & beef).

    Here's a frugal tip for you: check your local store for seasonings in bulk. I find them both at the health food store and the chain grocery store. They are SUBSTANTIALLY cheaper than buying in a jar or tin. For example, cinnamon sticks in a jar or tin runs $75-$113/pound. Cinnamon sticks in bulk are less than $20/pound.

    One of my favorites is Cajun seasoning. It's a good "uh-oh, what am I going to do for dinner" spice that you just dump on anything - roasts, chicken, tofu - and it comes out great.

    I use emirl's essence on pretty much everything ( )
    I buy the spices in bulk and mix it up myself.
    I also make a garlic/pepper blend that is good on most things.
