Learn to use herbs and spices to perk up the flavors of your favorite foods. Here are some examples:

  •     BEEF—bay leaf, marjoram, nutmeg, onion, pepper, sage, thyme
  •     CHICKEN—ginger, oregano, poultry seasoning, rosemary, sage, tarragon, thyme
  •     PORK—garlic, onion, sage, pepper, oregano
  •     CARROTS—cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg
  •     CORN— cumin, curry powder, paprika, parsley
  •     GREEN BEANS—dill, lemon juice, marjoram, oregano, parsley
  •     PEAS—ginger, onion, sage
  •     POTATOES—dill, garlic, onion, paprika, sage


Avoid pricking meats while cooking—meats contain natural salts that will seep out when pricked or turned with a fork. Balsamic vinegar is a wonderful flavor booster for soups and stews—just a few flavorful drops will do it!
