This page features links to themes such as: Quick Dishes; Meals that Make Good Leftovers, Kid-Friendly Meals, Prepared Pantry Tips; Quick Salads, and so on and so forth. These groupings reflect the cook-with-what-you-have philosophy of using what you have on hand (in the freezer, fridge, pantry) to create flavorful meals with minimal fuss. They also include pantry stocking and prepping ideas to set yourself up for successful weekday cooking.
Prepared Pantry I: Building blocks such as cooked beans, grains, veggie bouillon and chicken stock (all in the freezer) for quick weeknight meals.
Prepared Pantry II (Sauces/Dressings/Condiments): Cold sauces, dressings and condiments to enliven the simplest dishes such as aioli, harissa, salsa verde, and quick-pickled onions.
