    I like the sites.
    I follow the sites.
    I subscribe to emails.
    Garlic is my favorite spice.
    I really want to win!

  2. says

    Too hard to decide on a single spice because it depends on the type of cooking I am doing and the particular dish. I can’t imagine Italian cooking without garlic; I use zaatar as a great flavor enhancer on fish, and love curry on vegetables and Indian food. If I want to be healthy, I think tumeric.

  3. Marcia says

    I love rosemary. It’s good on so many things and I can grow it on my little NYC terrace!

  4. Lucy says

    I have gotten to love tumeric and cumin in my cooking. I use it in my chicken soup and rice and many other dishes. I do subscribe to the e-mail WJWE.

  5. says

    Freshly cracked black pepper is easily my favorite spice, but if I had to pick a favorite pantry spice I would say smoked paprika is my favorite. It brings so much flavor to the party! Perfect for hummus. :)

  6. Paula Goldman says

    I love chili powder for the flavor and color! I liked both sites on FB, signed up for emails on Amy’s site for the matzo phone cover, and did stable on this contest. I would love to win these because I am a white belt when it comes to really utilizing spices. Thanks for the contests!!

  7. Christina says

    I love so many spices, but if I had to choose just one (salt and pepper don’t count, and let’s call garlic a vegetable) I’d have to choose chile powder. Spicy, smokey, and flavorful.

  8. says

    my favorite spice is paprika- Both my parents are Hungarian so I grew up not only using paprika the way Americans use salt but we also always had a supply of fresh paprika from Hungary. The red color is so vibrant and the flavor of authentic Hungarian paprika is so potent. In my house we take our paprika very seriously!

  9. bethelderton says

    We like spicy–cayenne and red pepper flakes are two of our favorites

    Cinnamon because you can use it for sweet or savory. I also follow you on Facebook.

  12. Halikbaby says

    I have to go with curry, it enhances so many foods and makes the house smell delectable for days.

  13. Madeline says

    I follow you both on Facebook (FB name: Madeline Brubaker).

  14. says

    my favorite spice is Za’atar. Every time I go to Israel, I bring some back with me to last me until the following summer. It brings me back to my favorite place and my favorite foods every time I use it!

  15. says

    My favorite spice is cinnamon. I do a lot of raw food preparation and cinnamon adds the perfect amount of heat and sweetness to raw treats, almond mylk, tarts, etc.

  16. kathy khatri says

    my fave spice is chilli as my husband is nepalise and cooks the yummiest curries ever.

  17. Richelle says

    I heart Cumin. It’s pretty much in every one of my favorite dishes :) I just used it in tonight’s Spicy Honey Chicken.

  18. Stephanie says

    My favorite spice is rosemary. It goes well with chicken, fish and veges. So versitile!

  19. Heather! says

    I love cumin! I use it in a lot of dishes, including Mexican and Indian foods.

  20. Melva Nolan says

    Garlic is my “always add” spice, but love ginger, cardamom and cumin. It would love to win the spices :)

  21. dennis says

    Ginger root powder. I use it in homemade treats for my pregnant friends and friends going through chemo. It’s great for nausea

  22. Elaine Ellen says

    Picking a favorite spice is really hard! I like dill quite a lot, maybe I will say that one. But cinnamon is really good. And then you need such a variety for the variety of recipes.

  23. Ashley says

    Cayenne pepper. I grew up always having competitions with my brother to see who could eat spicier food and it just stuck with me. Now my kid, hubby, and even my dog all love spicy food.

  24. Annette says

    Basil is my favorite spice; I like that it’s so versatile and can be used with salads as well as main courses.

  25. Linda F says

    Cinnamon is my favorite spice because it smells so good and can be used in cooking and baking.

  26. Joan says

    Hard to choose just one but I love fresh cracked black pepper since it’s great on so many things.

  27. Jennifer McCormick says

    My favorite spice right now is spicebush berries! I use it in place of pepper in everything. Delicious!

  30. Nadia Talley says

    I use garlic powder on nearly everything—even when there’s already fresh garlic. Just to be safe :)

  31. says

    My favorite spice is either ground ginger or curry powder. They add a subtle, interesting taste to traditional dishes like stew and chili.

  32. A Karpel says

    My favorite spice right now is smoked paprika… everything a beautiful pop of color and a little smoky touch.

  33. Mary Somerville says

    My favorite is Basil- I love that with all the varieties of it-you can use it in most anything!

  34. Josephine D says

    My favorite is Sage–it’s so versatile and I love the flavor on a multitude of different foods.

  35. SarahT says

    Cumin tastes like my childhood! My dad put it on nachos with his home-canned, spicy-sweet peppers and extra sharp cheddar, in hummus for a little kick , and it even showed up in my mom’s savory quiches with sausage and mushrooms. Love it :)
