31. Bay leaves
Added to stews and sauces as they cook, these leaves from the bay laurel tree contribute a subtle flavor.
32. Red pepper flakes
If you like a bit of heat, these flakes are a nice addition to pizza and pasta.
33. Ground cayenne
Cayenne adds spice but also a pleasant, slightly smoky flavor to many dishes.
34. Sweet paprika
For color and flavor, this is one of the most useful spices in the kitchen.
35. Curry powder
You don’t have to cook Indian or Thai cuisine to find uses for this complex blend of spices. Hamburgers and meatballs, scrambled eggs or egg salad, potato salad, and fried rice are just a few of the foods it enhances.
