cinnamon!

I use it in my oatmeal and sprinkle a teaspoon of it on the coffee grounds before I brew a pot of coffee

Piri piri. Which is more accurately a blend of garlic and birds eye chili and lemona nd a few other bits and bobs, but it is an absolutely delightful way to flavor chicken especially, and root vegetables.

I put Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning on almost everything. However, I've discovered that I like making garlic and herb roasted potatoes (oregano, basil, parsley, and garlic mixed with cubed up baby red potatoes and tossed with olive oil).
I'm also a garlic fiend...the roasted potatoes I mentioned? I put probably a 1/4 cup of minced garlic into 1.5 lbs of potatoes.

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

My favorite alone: cumin - but my favorite combo (for almost anything, really) is cumin, coriander, ginger, cayenne, paprika, cinnamon, and a little salt and pepper. Took a bit of experimenting to get it. :)

This is my body and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time.
It's not perfect. But it's mine.

You can sprinkle it on rice or flat breads for a middle eastern touch.

I like all kinds of spices and my full door rack and shelf reflect that. you do have to use them frequently so they don't get stale.

but if they aren't as pungent as they were, you can still mix them up for a meat rub (you use so much that you still get a good effect). all meats benefit from a rub, especially if grilling them.

I am a total Penzeys freak! I will have to try that! I am lucky enough to have one of their stores somewhat close by. It's heaven going in there.

A friend gave me a Penzeys gift set once. Couldn't believe the difference in the Vietnamese cinnamon compared to the stuff in the grocery store.

Spices are the best!

Ivylass - I guess I am an exotic person in my heart. A few years back I went on a holiday to Saltspring Island in B.C. Canada and there was a Famers Market out in a large parking lot along side a community park. It was filled with home made articles and home grown foods. I stoped at a stall called "Monsoon Coast - Exotic World Spices". I bought two boxes of three different spices. The African gift box contained Ethiopian Berbere ( used in making Wats which is a spicy meat stew and is the national dish of Ethiopia), Araian Baharat ( which I used all up first) and Moroccan La Kama (this one was my favorite) and the second box, the Moroccan Tajine Collection, had Tunisian Harissa (great in a salsa as a garnish for couscous or a dip), Ras el Hanout (16 ingredients from pungent peppers to saffron and roses and is used in couscous and rice dishes), and another Moroccan La Kama. My favorite one is Orange Tajine with La Kama recipe that is to die for it's so good, made with chickpeas and winter squash and carrots and orange juice.. There were recipes in each box for each of the spices so I could experiment. These spices all go great with couscous, meats, beans, squashes and root vegetables. One was a Vegetable Tajine that used fennel bulb and dates with chickpeas. and summer squash and eggplant and green beans. Everything put togeather in one dish and so many vegetables you could get 5 different servings of vegetables in one meal. It made me realize how underdeveloped my diet had been for so long, so now I am more adventurous in my cooking since I have the spices needed to make my food pop!

You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. Youíll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

I am a huge fan of cumin, and curry mixes (red or yellow for me). I also use taragon or sage a lot for poultry and eggs, and chinese 5 spice and star anise for sweet things.

Ground sumac sounds very exotic. I'm more a garlic powder/cinnamon/oregano kind of girl.

I find when I get bored with my food using different spices changes the taste and I enjoy my food again. I cook for two and most recipes are for 4 - 6 people so the next day I change the taste by adding a few different spices to create a new flavor profile. While away taking care of my mom in January and February I was introduced to Ground Sumac. I was surprised when I found it at our local Bulk Barn spice isle. I've put it on the outside of my roasting chicken and sprinkled on my salads, but if anyone else has tried it with other foods I would love to hear how you use it. I would love to try any other spices that are unusual and interesting if you have some favorites please post them here.
