I sometimes use the schwartz chicken seasoning on potato wedges. I use mixed herbs in a lot of tomato dishes. For curries, I bung pretty much anything in, and I love ground cardamon pods. Garlic pepper livens up a lot of dishes too, but go easy on it, it's pretty hot.

I bung herbs n spices in everything

tarragon goes lovely with chicken or with baked fish
Thyme goes really nice with chicken also
I tend to bung a bay leaf in any meat based casserole i make

my fave thing at the mo is pumpkin , squash and courgette cut into big chunks with chilli, cumin and corriander sprinkled over them with a bit of fry light then roasted off

ones i couldnt live without are deffo

Black peppercorns
Sea Salt
Dried corriander
Dried cumin
Chilli flakes
chilli powder
Thyme
cheapo tesco value dried mixed herbs which i bung in my scrambled eggs

I noticed yesterday that Tesco have a budget brand for some of the more common dried herbs n spices and they were about 40p a jar so if your stocking up from scratch id have a look at these and that way if you find there is one you dont like you havent wasted much

I love thyme and marjarom(great in tomato based pasta sauces) and rosemary for anything to do with lamb.

In terms of spices, i use everything, we have a drawer in our kitchen that is solely full of spices, but i do use all purpose seasoning, cumin, chinese five spice, paprika and bouquet garni

Cumin in curries

Chinese 5 Spice is lovely in stirfries

As for fresh herbs, my ultimate favourite is basil. Tastes lovely and makes the food look posh! Hehe.
