Depends completely on what I'm cooking.

Certainly depends on the dish. Lamb Tagine (Ras-el-hanout, cinnamon, ginger) requires a completely different seasoning profile than a French braised short-rib recipe (fresh thyme, fresh oregano, red wine) - and I love them both.

I can say that I NEVER use dried thyme or dried oregano any more. Those can ruin a dish and create a bitter diesel fuel taste. Fresh thyme and fresh oregano are much sweeter and impart a more subtle flavor to the dish.

Dill, curry, sesame oil, bay leaves, sage, sea salt, garlic, rosemary, cinnamon.
You'd be surprised at how a touch of cinnamon adds a whole 'nother nuance to food without overpowering it.

Garlic and oregano are my primary go-to savory seasonings.

Cinnamon is my primary go-to for desserts (and kick-butt oatmeal).

My two favorite spice mixes are Cavender's Greek (great all-purpose seasoning) and McCormick Montreal Spicy Steak -- as the name implies, it's excellent on a steak.
LOVE Cavender's Greek Seasoning! Use it every day in my scrambled egg whites and also on other dishes including salads and home fries.

Other great loves:

Freshly ground Black Tellicherry Peppercorns (I live for my Peugeot grinder)
Fresh garlic
Penzey's seasoning/herb/spice mixes including: Parisian Blend, Bangkok Blend, Cajun Seasoning
Jane's Krazy Original Mixed-Up Seasoning Salt (especially on steaks and meats)
Fresh lemon juice as well as zest (very important with anything that might taste greasy - really freshens up)
