Kitchen help for Miggy? Thanks.
Guys, I am slowly rebuilding a kitchen pantry and am able to buy 4 spices this week that I will use for cooking.

Aldi's have them for sale for $1 each.

My sister has already given me salt, pepper, chili powder and ground cinnamon.

If I can buy 4 more spices to add to my collection what do you think they should be?

For instance, is it better to have garlic powder instead of garlic salt? Minced onion rather than chopped onion? Baking soda rather than baking powder?

Any thoughts will be appreciated as you guys NEVER let me down.

PS. I'm on a religious thread at the moment so won't get to check back here until right before i head out the door.

Thanks, buddies.

PS. The majority of cooking I do at the moment is based on rather bland (yet staple and filling) food.

So I mainly need to flavor potatoes, rice, dried spaghetti and bread.

Garlic powder since you have salt already. Baking powder since you can do more with it and also you can process it into a baking soda paste. Lastly, chopped onion. (: God bless sister! Ooh and a Good all-around seasoning salt is good. Your kitchen is a blessing! Keep on keeping on!! hf

Re: Kitchen help for Miggy? Thanks.
It depends also on what flavours you like.

Garlic powder is good, and versatile.

Corriander and Cumin if you like Indian/Middle Eastern Flavours.

Dried Mustard, if you like the flovour.

Paprika is great for Spanish flavours.

Italian herbs like basil, oregano, or a blend is great for pasta's.

There is a good list here:

[link to ideas.thenest.com]

Baking powder is useful, you can make plain flour into self raising flour by adding this.

I would search around for the types of recipes you would like to make....like at cooks.com...or simply google the main ingredients you generally use like "potato bean pasta recipe"
and then buy the spices etc that suit those recipes.

I love watching these...

Why not some empty pots, a bit of soil, and grow some herbs in your kitchen? They don't have to be monster sized.

My vote is rosemary, on everything.

Garlic for sure,,,forget the garlic salt, you can add salt to dishes.
Italian Seasoning....good for spaghetti sauce etc. and is combined basil / oregano / etc. so you get these in the mix.
Get both the baking powder and baking soda...baking recipes can call for both, or just one of them, and you can save money by making your own muffins etc.

AC, I am happy to know this about the Italian seasoning because I never really knew what it was and many of the recipes I look at call for that combination.

But do I really need baking powder?

Currently my sister cares for my Doxies but I get to see them once a week.

They are confused and two have made a "mess" recently. Since they're potty-trained I have never had to deal with this.

I think the baking soda will come in handy, don't you? More so than baking powder?

If you're trying to get by cheap, OP. A pot of chicken and dumplings lasts a while and only costs around 6-7 dollars to make home made.

That amount will feed at least 6 people. Pile it on top of mashed potatoes to make it go further.

Re: Kitchen help for Miggy? Thanks.
baking powder and baking soda aren't spices.

neither is minced onion.

I use Nutmeg a lot this time of year to enhance root vegetables and also cakes and biscuits.

Whole or powdered clove is usful too.

I never use any dried herbs apart from a basic herbes de provence mix for topping quiches and tatrs before baking

and finally I love my paprika. it can make a plain beef stew just that bit extra special and goes well if you sprinkle it on warming winter root veg soups.

celery slats and garlic salts and all that are a total waste of time. use celery and garlic and salt!

baking soda...use with dental care, and can be sprinkled on those "messes" to absorb and deodorize

on the spices: I'd do garlic salt, an all season salt, lemon pepper seasoning, Italian seasoning, and Cajun seasoning.

Re: Kitchen help for Miggy? Thanks.
My local store has the 'mexican' section and one thing they have is really cheap, in the bag herbs and spices, beyond dried chilies and cilantro. They have paprika, parsley, bay leaves, rosemary, etc. etc. etc. all ridiculously cheaper than the bottled stuff on the spice and herb aisle.

You may want to take a look see, for about a dollar you can get a good quantity of any herb or spice that costs around $5.00 for the same on in a bottle.



Garlic powder is good enough since you already have salt.

I would go with dehydrated diced onion since its relatively easy to grind up dried onion in a mortar and pestle, of which I have three (yes i do take spices and herbs seriously.

I would also get what is called 'Italian Seasoning' which is a mix of oregano, sage, thyme, marjoram, savory, basil and rosemary. It varies on other spices designed on the brand. Its just way cheaper to buy it premixed instead of buying all of those herbs.

Baking powder and baking soda are not the same thing and do different things while baking and leave your food with different flavors.
However many recipes one can substitute, but it takes a little knowledge: [link to chemistry.about.com]

Baking powder is a mix of cream of tartar and baking soda, so technically one can make their own if you have cream of tartar on hand and cornstarch.

Recipe I have used:

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons baking soda.
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) cream of tartar
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch

I use baking powder far more than I use baking soda in cooking. I do, however, buy large bags of baking soda for cleaning and deodorizing. Baking soda is pretty cheap.

Cream of tartar isn't cheap, it is a bi-product of wine making which means it is technically a waste product - to wineries, but its a valuable product for bakers.


Since I do not know your cooking habits, its going to be hard to pick what you should get. Think about what you like to cook most then plan around that.

I use a lot of parsley and paprika in my cooking, I also use a lot of Italian seasoning. chili pepper is pretty low on my list of spices, I have it and make chili about twice a month in the winter, but that is pretty much all I use it for.

If you have a 'Mexican' section in your grocery store I'm willing to bet you will find the plastic bags of spices, they go like a dollar a bag.

Its been a while since I bought any since I grow most of my own herbs. but I still do buy clove, cinnamon and other exotics that I can't raise in my own garden from there. Its cheap, far cheaper than bottled/tinned.
