Are you a salt/pepper kinda chick, or do you go crazy with seasonings?

My mom and my grandma only use salt and pepper to flavor their food. I didn't know how much better food could taste until I met my fiance. He introduced me to cilantro and oregano and basil and garlic and all the other herbs and spices.

  • I love to season! Basil is my favorite. I like thyme, oregano, garlic....practically any seasoning except celery seed and cilantro.
    Mrs. Dash makes some nice cheap seasonings for the lazy cook!

  • Garlic all the way! I would put it on french toast if I thought it would taste good!

  • OMG Yes I loooove Mrs. Dash. I think that's the only "wild" seasoning my mom has in her cabinet.

    Ohhh, all the flavors I missed out on as a child...

  • I also love to season. I grow fresh herbs in pots on my deck. We are big on basil, rosemary, oregano, Essence, lemon pepper, chili seasoning, taco seasoning, hot pepper flakes, garlic (FRESH) fans.

    I think the only thing I only like S&P on is a good steak, if its a good steak that's all it needs.

  • I'm always buying new seasonings and trying them out. I love to season things. It's a great easy way to change up the same old recipe - throw in a new seasoning, and it changes it enough to make it seem new.

  • I love to try different herbs and spices and combinations. My "spice rack" takes up most of a kitchen counter. LOL

  • Actually, I rarely use salt. I use pepper, garlic, onion powder, Lawry's. I like seasonings, I do NOT like bland and boring foods.
