I was recently asked what I have stocked in my pantry. Truth be told, I’ve paired things down quite a bit after downsizing to my current kitchen. I only have a couple of shelves and drawers to store things in, so I rotate items more often than I used to. That being said, I’ve put together a list of my 35 favorite Pantry “Must-haves” so that I’m well-stocked with the staples.
Pantry Must Haves:
soy sauce or gluten free tamari
pasta sauce (read the labels)
pasta or rice pasta
dry beans & lentils
nuts and nut butters
coarse sea salt
All purpose flour
Of course, if you want to go over 35 items, there are plenty of other things we could add to the list, especially when you get in the realm of herbs and spices. Be in touch -let me know if you have anything to add to the list–I’d love to hear from you.
Our bull mastiff CoCo is always on hand to help test out my new recipes. Check out these kabobs that I plan to feature in my new E-book…yeah, a cookbook! I’m putting together the best of the best of Back to the Kitchen and a few new surprises. I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, listen for the SIZZLE!
