Salt and pepper are the two kitchen stars, but keeping a range of dried spices — some favorites include basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, cumin, chili powder, and paprika — will add a ton of flavor to your cooking. Dried herbs and spices should be replaced after six months, so buy them in small quantities unless you know you'll use them often.
