I have a cabinet full of different spices, but I do tend to use a lot the same things over and over. I’m a heat addict, so if I’m cooking just for myself, I tend to use a lot of crushed red pepper or cayenne. Because of its versatility, Adobo seasoning gets a lot of use. Cumin and turmeric make a lot of appearances as well. Dill for cold salads. A little bit of onion salt on roasted vegetables. I try not to fall into cooking ruts, but my spice usage is a little… predictable.
