webchick- It depends on what I'm cooking.
Almost anything savory, especially tomato based dishes like pasta sauce, gravy, even some dishes that just have tomato as an ingredient, I'll add a little sugar.
There's just something about that hint of sweet that just works with savory dishes.
I also do that with green beans any type of greens (turnip, mustard, etc.)
The idea is not for them to go "Oh, there's sugar in here", it's JUST enough to compliment what it's in.
It took me years to get it just right.
My other go to's-
Zatarain's and Cavender's seasonings.
The both contain a variety of spices that enhance a dish without having to buy several different kinds of spices.
Zatarain's is more spicey, but not overly so. Cavender's rely's on my FAVORITE secret ingredient...........
Garlic.
Almost anything can be enhanced by garlic.
I use it in sauces, gravy's, soups, rubs, marinades.
Anyone that's eaten one of my meals probably got some garlic in something.
Don't even get me started on butter.......... :)

For fish or chicken breasts I have a blend of equal parts mustard powder, smoked paprika, Amchoor (powdered green mangoes) found in Indian food stores and a blackened seasoning like Zatarain's or Old Bay. The Amchoor is the true taste bud experience. Amchoor is slightly tart but still a mellow sweet hint.

Celery salt can be added to so many things, including hamburgers and soups.

Add cilantro to any green salad for an absolutely awesome flavor!

I like ground cumin. I sprinkle a ton in my flour before breading chicken.

Single malt whiskey in my veggie stir-fry - a very small amount (about a tsp per cup of raw veggies) - especially good w/ shaved Brussel sprouts, riced cauliflower, and roasted garlic.

Fish sauce on beef, made by Red Boat.

Sound's really gross since, it's fermented black anchovies' but, a little sprinkled on the beef after cooking really kick's the flavor up to a new level!!!

Some fish sauce has a nasty smell but, the red boat is pretty much odorless....

You can find it in the Asian isle.

Give it a try, it's REALLY good!!!!
