I’m so frustated I can never get my food to taste as good as restaurants. What is the secret ingredient to making home food taste amazing ?

There are only 3 foods that I can make amazingly and they are tacos burritos and chili but I don’t want to get bored making the same thing every time. I suck at everything else.

    Breakfast is the first meal of the day, logic says you should start there for learning to cook too.

    Butter and Salt - amp both of them up (as unhealthy as they are) it is what makes the difference.

    There is no "secret" ingredient in any recipe.  (other than *fresh*)

    Your "taste" is not my "taste."  YOU need to adjust the recipe to YOUR taste.

    You need to figure out what spices you like, find recipes that use them.

    If you actually want HELP, you need to lose that "Anonymous", post your old questions and what answers you thought was helpful.  And you have to a meal that you did, list the recipe ingredients and directions, and what you didn't like about it.

    Restaurants have such a large array of ingredients oils, herbs, spices, seasonings.

    You couldn't possibly have all of them in your kitchen / larder,.

    Just get a selection of the staples / basics which could 'help' your recipes along,   good luck!
