Here's my list of staple items to always have on hand if you want explore free style cooking. I'm going to skip normal things like Ketchup. Mustard etc. You can get all of the following items at the grocery store.

Balsamic Vinegar

Minced Garlic (in the jar)
Cocktail sauce
Chili Sauce
Yoshida's Gourmet Sauce (Publix)
Cooking Wines - White, Marsala, Sherry etc.
Worcestershire Sauce
Lemon Juice
Lime Juice
Taco Season Packets

Brown Gravy Mix
Parmesan Cheese
Sunflower Seed nuts

You've probably already thought of this tip - Sauté onions in a couple tbs. of butter on Med heat. As they are cooking, sprinkle some season salt, pepper and worcestershire sauce in as they cook. They'll get a tasty glaze on them. Put them over the top of chicken or beef.
