Non traditional ingredients you like to add to traditional dishes

I like to add a little chopped fresh rosemary to my clam chowder.Not exactly traditional but I find it works really well.

I also like soy and and a little parm on white rice. (Way out there)

Granulated garlic in a grilled cheese sandwich works for me too.

What are your oddities?

I sometimes add a drop of real vanilla to freshen up scrambled eggs or omelets.

I like some coriander seeds and bay leaves cooked into my spaghetti sauce.

I inherited this trait from my mother, she puts vanilla in just about everything that she bakes. I've never tried scrambled eggs, but I will now. Farm fresh local eggs of course

I have a friend bringing me some eggs from her chickens today!

It's good for eggs that are a few days old. But a single drop is all that is needed.

I like to add about a quarter teaspoon of jerk seasoning (I usually buy Grace's) to my broth soups. Especially chicken noodle......
