If you are stocking
your spice rack for the first time, or are wanting to purchase
the most common herbs and spices called for in recipes, here
is a list of staples you should own.
Of course, you
may be a fan of a recipe that calls for celery seed or ground
cloves, so don't not pick up a certain herb or spice simply
because it isn't on the list. But this will serve as a great
jumping off point for you to stock that spice rack.
