My husband doesn't like garlic much so i really don't use it much these days, but I am aware of the health advantages of garlic and try and include it in some dishes.

I too like pepper. However, probably my favourite is ginger. I love to have ginger tea. I believe it is very good for you as well and I have even heard that it speeds up the metabolism. cheers,

I love garlic pepper. It's the perfect accessory to any savory meal! I use it in my casseroles, chicken, garlic toast. It's also great on veggies!! YUM!

I generally put garlic salt on everything. I love garlic and I'm a salt-aholic. The health benefits of the garlic makes me feel like I'm counteracting the salt a bit. :)

Yes, me too. When I'm not on a diet -in these days I'm supposed to be on a controlled alimentary regimen- I cook with a lot of pepper, and we use the entire grains which we powder at the moment of cooking. My mother-in-law, coming from a journey in Egypt, has presented us a couple of parcels of 250 grams of grains of mixed brown, white, green and black pepper (don't ask me what is brown pepper, while the white quality consists of the decorticated berry, the green one is the unripe one, and the black obviously...). When I could cook freely I used it on almost every kind of soup (potatoes, pies, mushrooms, carrots and beans) and on many tomato sauces with the only exception of those which had to be eaten by my 1Y4M son. Not to mention steaks, burgers, and fried chicken. We also use fresh garlic and red peppers but less frequently. bie

The three spices that I normally use in cooking are garlic,ginger and onions. They are present in almost all the Chinese dishes that I cook.

HI serenidity, i love cooking and while cooking i alwayz use spices in it. it is a speciality in my made food item. I love garlic, black pepper, Clove Powder and cinnamon, I love the smell of cinnamon a lot so i use it regularly in most of my preparations like fried vegetable rice, and my hubby likes it in his tea as well. In our indian culture the spices have lots of medicinal values attached to it and so their use is encouraged a lot.

I have to agree with garlic. I love the taste. The aroma of it cooking fills the whole house with with such wonderful smells. It is very healthy for you. But, my husband would disagree. His favorite is cinnamon.

I use garlic all the time. It is defiantely my favorite. I buy it in bulk and it always surprises me how fast we run out of it. I hope we are getting great health benifits from it but I woulf eat it anyway because I love the taste.

I like pepper too but Rosemary in soup is one of my favorites. It perks up the flavor of the veggies and gives it a unique taste.
