Thoughts welcome on some great new spices I scored!

I visited a great spice shop this weekend and had fun tasting/not holding back purchasing. I know I like the flavor of the following, but if you friends out there have ideas on recipes or techniques that capitalize on these great ingredients, I'd love to hear them (vegetarian options please): powdered mild New Mexico green chiles; dried rose petals; pomegranate molasses; berbere blend; a greek blend that includes mint. thanks!

I have used pomegranate molasses to glaze lamb meatballs. I brush on a little right before they are done and run them under the broiler. I think it would also be good in a sweet/sour/spicy chicken wing sauce.

I would infuse a simple syrup with the rose petals and then use as a soak or add to your favorite beverage.

Love berbere! I would mince up some onions in the food processor and saute them for a little bit to take off the edge then add them to some cooked red lentils with the berbere and some clarified butter. Yum - and vegetarian.
