    Request to Food.com: List of most common seasonings

    Request to Food.com:
    Please publish a comprehensive text list (not a database) of the most commonly used seasoning ingredients, sorted from most used seasoning ingredients to least used seasoning ingredients; created from mining Food.com's recipe database. This single list should include both herbs and spices in the same, ordered list to best facilitate the benefits described in Part 2 below.


    Why?:
    Part 1: Benefit to Food.com
    This hugely valuable list will generate backlinks to Food.com that help increase Food.com's rankings in search results, and generate word-of-mouth recommendations about Food.com from current users to new, prospective users.

    Part 2: Benefit to Food.com's Users
    Anyone who is new to cooking and setting up a kitchen needs to know which seasonings are used most, so they can create a collection of seasonings that prepares them for most recipes, while getting the most value for their money.

    Lacking knowledge of which seasoning ingredients are most used is likely to cause at least two unhappy problems. Buying spices that sit on the shelf past their useful life is a waste of money that could have been spent on a more useful ingredients. Getting excited about a recipe, then discovering one does not have the required seasoning ingredients on hand is quite disappointing.

    Food.com is in a very unique position to provide the most definitive, truly expert resource anywhere about what seasonings are used most, based solely on empirical facts created from trolling their huge database of recipes that span every imaginable kind of food. This unique list would be based on an actual count of how many times each herb and spice appears in the massive recipe database. While there are other sources for information about which seasonings are most commonly used, they are incomplete lists based on opinion and not measurable fact; making them much less useful than the list I propose Food.com create.

    Thank you for your effort.

    While that is an interesting link, it is definitely not what I am seeking. That site does have a page that is closer to what I seek:
    http://www.spiceadvice.com/newsa/usage/staple_spices.html
    yet still does not fulfill my proposed criteria.

    Thanks,
