PANTRY ESSENTIALS

Our dependence on prepared foods, packaged in plastic and paperboard, is a learned habit. It didn’t happen overnight, though. It took several generations for us to shift from cooking at home almost exclusively to the ready-made versions of those same recipes. (I’m looking at you, pudding-in-a-cup!)

This collection of condiments, dips, spreads, and snack recipes to make right in your kitchen will cut your grocery bill and reduce the amount of single-use plastic that enters your home.

Cutting your dependence on these store-bought convenience items is easy! Pick one or two of my favorite condiment or snack recipes and give homemade a try.
