Today’s Shade of Shay is about food :). Ahhhh…I love to be in the kitchen. If you don’t normally read my foodie blog, you should! This time of year (fall going into Christmas) is the very best time to get in the kitchen. Fall food is just the best…it’s warm, comforting and absolutely cozy.
Every fall, I really try and make sure I have some staples in my pantry for the season. You know…nothing fancy, just some simple items on hand for quick suppers everyone will love. To see inside my pantry, click here.
Here are some of my favorite pantry items along with a recipe or two to use with them…
Canned soups added into recipes make for really quick cooking! A lot of nights, I know you don’t have a lot of time to prepare dinner, so this little ingredient right here can really speed up supper time.
Of course, pasta is fabulous pantry item! I have over 75 pasta recipes on my blog. To see them all, click here. 🙂
For some of my favorite seasonal desserts this fall and Christmas, you just need a few cake mixes and a variety of chips (chocolate, butterscotch, white chocolate, peanut butter…whatever you love!) on hand! In no time flat, you’ll have something sweet :). To see a list of my 100 Bundt Cakes (all 100 use a cake mix and they’re all super simple and delicious!), click here.
And for most of my recipes, the only spices you might need are one of these…Pumpkin Pie Spice, Chili Powder, Italian Seasoning and Cinnamon. I’m not into long ingredient lists. I like to keep things simple, quick and cost efficient…so when you’re stocking up on spices, you’ll only need these four.
These are my Fall Pantry Staples! This season, when you’re ready to make dinner or a fun dessert, don’t forget to come see what I’m cookin’ up!
