I know I am not going to be able to word this the way I want, but here goes...
What is your favorite food flavoring? You know the flavors that you can't say no to. The spice/flavor you cook with a lot.
What food flavor turns you away every time?
I love the zip that vinegar gives foods. I tend to put it in a lot of stuff. Jeff claims he is not a fan, but he has no idea how much of it he has consumed over the years, not knowing there is vinegar in there.
I also adore garlic and I use a ton of it. I planted a few bulbs for the first time this year. It's cheap enough to buy, but I think it'll be fun to have my own on hand if they come up.
As most everyone knows, I cannot abide the flavor of onion. I think the onion flavor overpowers everything else and that's all you taste. And I don't like the overpowering flavor it gives.
I love garlic! I used to love onion... but apparently this baby doesnt like onions LOL
Salt.....I could not live without it.
I'm not a fan of too much basil.
I use alot of spices, so I cant name one I love over another. How ever fresh garlic can become to much for my body, so far I dont react to dried.
I havent found anything I like fresh coriander in or lavender but who knows.
I can't really think of any one spice that I can't not eat. As my husband normally reminds me, I grew up as a pretty bland eater. It was usually salt and pepper, but not much else. We have red salt at home that we cook with alot. I don't know what's all in it. My MIL gets it from a family friend. It's close to a Lawry's mix I believe.
I don't care for garlic, too overpowering for me. It depends on my attitude when it comes to onions (sorry Tracy & Cara). I will use onion powder and flakes, but I rarely cook with fresh onions. I do like onions in chinese food, but not anything else. I don't do spicy either. My mouth, stomach, and toilet don't like it.
I love basil, cilantro, garlic, onion, cumin just to name a few. Oh and curry - love that also. What I do not like is anything with too much salt. I use very little when cooking. I hate when that is all you can taste is salt.
I do like my salt too. But I agree that when you get too much it's terrible.
too funny Susan !
I love onions, garlic, and salt.. I need salt =).. Never heard of 'red salt' but I would give it a try!
I found a new one- garlic and pepper- MMM
I dislike Lemon seasoning ..and Basil- nope dislike.
I love onions but only a few... I am not one to smother my stuff in onions. I like the vinegary stuff too, Tracy, like Salt & Vinegar chips or malt vinegar with french fries. Y'all probably already know that I like to drink dill pickle juice and I keep the juice from the mild yellow banana peppers in a jar to add to my tossed salad, potato salad or macaroni salads. Yummy!
I also love most anything "buffalo" style! I am still waiting to try the buffalo chicken griller at Taco Bell. And i've got a few other buffalo recipes that i need to try ... yummy~
Garlic is almost always too powerful for me.. cracks me up that Tracy adores garlic but not onion, i find just the opposite, garlic usually overpowers stuff for me. A little is fine... like a sprinkle or two of garlic powder added.
Not a big fan of cilantro.. tastes and smells like dishsoap to me! I can and have eaten it if it is mixed into a dish but if it's more than just an tty-bitty bit, I gag. I cannot stand cutting it up for a dish either, I've tried to like it but it smells awful!
Of course i do love my salt... i think most everyone likes SOME salt, it does make almost everything taste better. And, I agree that an overabundance of salt is disgusting. But, I think that too much of any spice is usually disgusting!
Buffalo flavor! That's another one I forgot about. I love it. That's more what I had in mind for this question, flavors over spices.
Funny about the garlic, Daisy. I find it to be fairly mild.
