Take a peek inside your spice cabinet and what do you see? A half-empty jar of cinnamon sticks for adding as a garnish to mulled cider and a plastic salt and pepper shaker set? My spice cabinet is full… every time I open it, something tumbles out at me. So maybe I’ve gone overboard… but if you’re looking to stock your spice rack, here’s my list of 7 spices you have to have… and why!
1. Sea Salt

Sea salt is delicious, and much healthier than regular salt. It adds a unique, tangy flavor to any dish, and it looks pretty when sprinkled as a garnish! I use it on top of pasta, or on bruschetta.
