Cumin

Cumin

Crock Pot Mexican Tacos, enchilada's and soups and stews are flavored with cumin.

Cinnamon

Ground Cinnamon or Cinnamon Sticks is a wonderful spice not only for the flavor added to many baked good like a Cinnamon Apple Struesel Coffee Cake but it also has many health benefits.

Ginger

Ginger

Ginger root or ginger powder is used in baking but I enjoy cutting s sliver of ginger root and adding it to my drink. Another spice that is packed full of health benefits. Fresh Ginger root can be used to infuse the spicy flavor of ginger in store bought honey. Use the ginger infused honey as a drizzle over a fresh fruit salad.

Salt

Salt

Although I don't use much salt when I am cooking or eating most recipes include salt. Salt will enhance the flavors of most recipes. Even sweet dessert recipes with include a pinch of salt because it brings the flavors out of other fresh ingredients.

Pepper Corns

Like salt most savory recipes benefit from the addition of black pepper. Ground or whole peppercorns will add a spicy flavor to your favorite recipes.

3

Garlic

Garlic

Garlic probably should have been my # 1 spice. I use it all the time. If a recipe calls for 2 cloves of garlic I double or even triple the amount. Garlic also have many health benefits. Ground garlic powder or fresh garlic cloves addes so much flavor to many recipes.

Rosemary

Rosemary is a spice I have really started to enjoy in the past 4 years or so. Rosemary chicken is probably one of the most known recipes using rosemary. I enjoy baking bread and focassia using lots of rosemary.

Bay Leaves

My main use for bay leaves is in soups and stews. I would never dream of making a pot of soup, or crock pot pork stew or slow cooking dry beans without using bay leaves.

Vanilla Beans

Vanilla Beans

If you're a baker you are probably very familiar Vanilla beans and vanilla extract. Did you know you can make your own homemade vanilla extract? Here are the easy step by step process to make your own homemade vanilla extract.

Nutmeg

Nutmeg

Nutmeg is almost a seasonal spice for me during the holidays but I am finding I reach for it much more while baking. Sprinkle a tiny bit on top of a mug of eggnog.
