One of the resources we used to help stock our pantry is the Well-Stocked Kitchen list over at FeastOnTheCheap.Com. I like how their recipes work- making sure you have a good base built up in order to make cheaper, well rounded recipes.
Jack is the cook here- I am merely an assistant, and he always asks me for recipes so I've been going pretty crazy with Pinterest lately getting recipes saved. I think having a good kitchen will really help me get over just saying "oh, we don't have that"- Jack keeps trying to break me out of this habit. Partially because I limit myself, and partially because he can't make cool stuff.
Some other great sources I've found for kitchen stocking tips:
- Essential Tools for a Well Stocked Kitchen via BonAppetit.Com
- Well-Stocked Kitchen via DoItDelicious.Com
- The Well Stocked Kitchen: Staple Foods You Should Always Have on Hand via TheSimpleDollar.com
- Well Stocked Pantry via TerisKitchen.com
As I'm getting more used to googling, and searching out what I look for it's been like a gold mine finding resources on all these websites and blogs. 20 years ago I would've been at the library every day checking out organization books!
What is the most important item in your pantry or kitchen?
