Spice up your life.

After poling some of the best chefs and bakers in my family, I drew up a list of the most important spices to stock up your shelves with. I always hate looking up a recipe and not having the spice or herb it calls for. So I hit the Dekalb Farmers market and bought over 17 spices for under $15 dollars. That place is Willy Wonka’s Factory for a chef, although you don’t need a golden ticket to get in.


Here’s my list of the TOP 25 Spices to have in your cabinet.

  1. Salt (a given)
  2. Pepper (another given)

  9. Cumin
  10. Oregano
  11. Lemon Pepper
  12. Lavender
  13. Ginger
  14. Mustard
