Adding Flavor to your food: Cooking With Herbs and Spices.

One thing I am trying to learn is how to cook with herbs and spices and spice blends. The spices that I mainly use is garlic, cumin, chipolte powder, chili powder, italian seasoning. I really want to learn to expand my horizon and to branch out. I also would love to learn more about flavors and which Herbs and Spices go with what meat. I have been doing some searches to find different sites and here are a couple that my be a help to you learn your herbs,spices and spice mixture. My problem is  what flavors go well with what food, I know dill goes well with fish, and mint goes well with lamb but other than that it is just a guess. What is your favorite flavor combination, how did you learn about flavors  or do you just guess?
