all of those plus parsley, paprika, cayenne, tarragon, dill, and always use a ton of onion, garlic and shallots.

Balsamic vinagar, lemon, apple cider vinagar

I make my own marinade. Mint is great too.

I don't really have a specific recipe. It's a little of this and a little of that... taste add something else and taste again.. sometimes something i make is outstanding and I can't alway remember how I did it!

I use curry sometimes too.. Trial by error. .

Pop Tarts. I used to love them. Put butter on the back of them and let it melt and soak in. Alas. The list of what I used to buy and no longer do buy is way too long, but Pop Tarts came to mind for some reason.

Old El Paso taco seasoning. It was a quick and easy staple in our house growing up, and I continued to use it as an adult. 2-3 years ago they introduced the "now even better" version, and it's disgusting.
