Your favorite seasoning/seasoning blend

What are some of your favorite seasonings and seasoning blends, and what do you use them on?

We use quite a few seasoning blends. Can't say we have a favorite as they are all based on the cuisine/dish we are making.

Well for me, garlic is number one. As far as a blend, and since visiting France, I've been on an Herbs de Provence kick. It's such a pleasant combination of herbs.

Same here. I use Emeril's Essence (mix it myself) a bit when I want to add some quick zip to something. I like the jerk blend I get from Savory Spice Shop. A couple of others that I really like from them too, Barrier Reef Seafood Seasoning, Cherry Creek Seafood seasoning. I make my own SPOG blends for low and slow smoking/barbecue.

However, I'm also a believer that with many foods, salt and pepper are all that's necessary or desirable, with maybe a single herb for savory flavor.

Garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder, bay leaf and celery seed are the ones I reach for most often.

A nice blend for me would be.

Between Penzy's and Savory Spice Shop we spent $80 one day. I love those places!

I just got a $60 order in the mail last Wednesday. Since we live less than 1/4 mile from the post office we don't qualify for delivery and have to have a PO box instead. Since Savory sends by Priority Mail, the package was kept overnight in the cabinet in the post office. The postmaster said that there was no doubt what was in the package, the whole post office smelled like a spice shop (the post office here is no larger than most people's living rooms, and smaller than many I've seen). I told her that she could expect that about every other month or so.

I don't buy spice blends, but I do like to make my own taco seasoning, bouquet garni, and Italian spice blend. My favorite spice blend, however, is my friend's curry powder. She makes a pint jar for me about 4x/year. I give her eggs and am teaching her sons how to make pasta, pie crust, etc.
