pantry items + what’s in our fridge

These foods are always in our fridge + pantry. We keep the ingredient lists short in our recipes + use a lot of the same staple ingredients so all you need to buy are the fresh ingredients. We strive for organic, but know it’s not always an option depending on what is available at your grocer and what is budget-friendly. Most stores carry their own organic brand, reasonably priced. These items change seasonally, so check back as seasons change.
