I've been a lazy cook lately and haven't really made anything blog-worthy, or just repeated things I've blogged about before. I was thinking at 4 this morning after I fed my twins and put them to bed about what spices/seasonings I would pick if I could only have two for the rest of my life (salt and pepper aren't allowed). I didn't really even have to consider, because I have two go-to spices/seasonings.
I have a seasoning that I use in the majority of my savory dishes, and that is garlic powder. Oh my word I love garlic powder. Not only does it have a delicious garlicky flavor, (duh), but I feel like it makes lots of foods more interesting, like fish, plain noodles with butter, in salad dressings..oh I could go on forever. Another reason why I like it is that I've heard and read about it having the possibility of reducing cholesterol and blood pressure. Awesome, right? Although I know it's not a miracle worker, I like that possibility.
The other one I would chose is cinnamon! I use it in every sweet dish I make, and usually add extra! I put it in hot cocoa, any muffins, cakes, PIES...oh yes. It tastes so good, and gives desserts a richer flavor. Also, I've taken cinnamon pills before because evidently it helps to metabolize sugar. Awesome right?
Curious, what would you choose?
