Episode 81 All in One Pantry Meals.png

We love pantry meals all the dang time, but are loving them even more right now.

Pantry Meals for Any Time

We recorded this episode just before major states like California and New York cancelled school and large gatherings. We honestly could not have imagined that measures would need to get so drastic and that so many Americans would, just days later, be asked to shelter in place.

So while we reference COVID-19 and what we thought might become a reality for a small handful of folks, we did not record this as a pandemic response episode. But here we are.

The tips, ideas, and products mentioned in this episode are especially relevant in this very moment, but we believe that they are a great resource all of the time. Because every busy home cook knows that nothing is more valuable than a delicious meal you can quickly scratch together from your pantry.
