I like to roast Brussels sprouts, potatoes (oven "fries"), broccoli and cauliflower, tomatoes and other foods. I normally drip olive oil onto the vegetables, or toss them in a bowl with olive oil. After placing on a pan covered with parchment paper, I sprinkle my go-to spices and put into the oven.

My go-to spice mix for the above consists of turmeric, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper and salt. Sometimes I also add oregano, rosemary, coriander, cilantro and cumin depending on the flavor I want.

People love my oven "fries" and Brussels sprouts.

My go-to spice mix for yogurt, fruit compotes and pies consists of cinnamon (Ceylon), ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, and clove.

It's easy to make your own spice mixes, rather than buy store bought spice mixes. I like to make gifts of these mixes. I make my own chili powder mix. The store bought ones have other ingredients that aren't good for you, such as anti-caking substances, MSG and such.

Spices are good for you, and flavor foods so well. Learn to use spices and herbs in your cooking.
