Feed Yourself – Spices

The Feed Yourself series is dedicated to individuals that cook just for their selves. This goes out to everyone that finds them self wanting to cook but dreading the time, effort, and all the clean up needed to just cook for one. It can honestly be a quick, easy, and enjoyable process!

Spices are an essential part of cooking, but they don’t have to be complicated. Below are some spices that are great to have (starting with the most important); but if you have your own preferences then definitely use what you like!

  • Salt
  • Coarse black pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder (if you don’t use fresh garlic)
  • Lemon pepper
  • All-purpose seasoning (no specific recommendation, this is very preference based – shop around and ask friends/family until you find one/many that you like)
  • Chili powder/crushed red pepper/cayenne pepper (if you like to add a kick to your food)
  • Oregano/basil/rosemary (herbs, fresh or dry, are a great addition to any recipe, especially chicken and pasta dishes)
