Stocking Your Pantry

Stocking your pantry ensures food will be there when you need it. It also helps to make weeknight meals easier to swing. I love scanning my pantry to see what ingredients I can pull together for a meal, quick snack, or dessert. Try it, and you may be pleasantly surprised to learn you are more resourceful and creative in the kitchen than you imagined.
