Stock that pantry!
And cook with what you have

Last-minute runs to the store at rush hour? No thank you!

  Keep a running list of basics and stay stocked with the things that you know you can pull together for a quick meal. Pick up fresh herbs and lemons every week and never suffer a dull meal again!
