I do use quite a lot of Asian spices in my cooking.

Many of them make such nice recipes including Char Sui which is one of my favourites, and also Ketjap Manis, but there are others I use regularly.

Well 'when I do cook!' I love garlic, chilli, lemongrass, coriander, cumin so...yes I guess do

My husband does the cooking and I'm sure if he was allowed he'd make spices the main course. I was brought up on simple fare, we were a lamb chops and mash veggies family (lamb was cheap then) so I'm not keen on spices.
I have always loved using herbs and spices when cooking.Asian spices are so aromatic as well as flavoursome.
Yes, lots! My mum was unusual compared to my friends' mums, as she used lots of interesting flavours in her cooking and when I went to university I was horrified to discover how flat and dull food without spices tastes! Mum knew all the little Indian and Chinese shops that sold spices in vast quantities and with a much better flavour than those sold in squitty little pots in the supermarket. She also grew a lot of herbs and spices in the garden so we had them fresh too.
I am not as good as her but I do try to make my food as interesting as possible!
I really like the Asian spices - I just don't use them that often unless I have time to do proper cooking

Sadly No....we are not able to eat very much spice.
Lucky people who can! :)

The above photo is pleasing on every level!
Thank you!

I do, yes. There's a wonderful asian grocer not too far from here and I go a bit silly in their spice aisle. I never regret it though.
That would be a yes, yes and yes !

oh yes nothing like it
When a dish requires it, yes, & I enjoy using them.

Just humble 'cracked Black Pepper' is wonderful to me!
Yes I love them, & use some of them most nights in my cooking. It's just the chilli spice 1 we can't come to, anymore. I have 74 small matching jars of herbs & spices, in 2 spice racks! When our granddaughter was 3 & her mummy was having another baby, she used to tell everyone, "If it's a boy baby, I'd like him to be called, Risotto, & if it's a girl baby, I'd her to be called, Chilli". Needless to say, she now has a sister, by the name of Ginger!!!
