I'm allergic to garlic and onions: talk to me about your other favorite spices!

I read a critique recently that said cooks are too dependent on garlic and onion to spice dishes. I know I've been quite guilty of that. so when I identified that I'm allergic to onions and garlic, I'm trying to look at it as an opportunity to break out of a rut and try out some new flavors in my kitchen. So homies, tell me about some of your favorite spices and how you use them!

How cow milk and goat milk relate to Mama milk: a story and a quiche recipe

During my pregnancy my craving was ice cream. But during my last trimester I was advised to stop eating sugar. When I gave birth, I was so excited to be able to eat ice cream again and make up for all those cravings I hadn't been able to satisfy. I knew that because I was nursing, that I'd have to eat healthy, but at least some sugar could return to my diet. But when my baby was about three months old, I was put on another new strict diet, this time for dairy, and my dreams of eating ice cream throughout the spring and summer months were squashed again.

How can I deal with pregnancy cravings for food I'm allergic to?

I'm intolerant to gluten — I've been tested professionally and have the paperwork to prove it. I've had no problem dropping it from my diet until now… while I'm pregnant.
