Jukugo

無料(むりょう)

free ★★★★☆
(without) + (ingredients / fees) = 無料 (free)

free (not like Martin Luther King, I mean free like a free magazine full of articles on how to become a stripper)

料理(りょうり) つくる

cuisine/cooking ★★★★☆
(ingredients / fees) + (reason) = 料理 (cuisine/cooking)

2 meanings.
1: cooking , as in, "My hobby is cooking. I'm cooking right now, I can't talk."
2: cuisine, as in, "My favorite cuisine is Mexican. My favorite cuisine is Indonesian."
(BOOBOO: You don't say, though, "I'm going to buy some ryouri." Or "I'm eating ryouri right now." )

料金(りょうきん)

a fee, also, bills. ★★★☆☆
(ingredients / fees) + (gold) = 料金 (a fee, also, bills.)

給料(きゅうりょう)

wages ★★★☆☆
(provide) + (ingredients / fees) = 給料 (wages)

wages - a bit more useful than the related word 給与. For instance, 'payday' is 給料日 (きゅうりょうび)、 not 給与日.

香辛料(こうしんりょう)

spices ★☆☆☆☆
(good smell) + (spicy / painful) + (ingredients / fees) = 香辛料 (spices)

spices - not just hot ones. This is the only word you'll ever need the onyomi for. Sorry.
