I don’t think of myself as a homesteader or a survivalist. I’m just a lady who likes to know how food is made. Turns out in a case like this, my obsession with homemade condiments, easy meals and simple staples is working to my benefit!
Here are my top recipes made with pantry staples, minimal fresh ingredients, frozen items AND homemade basics like mayonnaise, butter and bread. The only thing we don’t have is milk… because we don’t own a cow (joke).
We even have easy desserts made with pantry staples that we’ve been debuting in our Facebook LIVE series cooking with my 2-year old daughter, Vivian.
And also make sure to check out our common ingredient substitutions in case you are missing an ingredient and how to freeze food to make the most of what you have.
Easy dinner ideas, sauces, staples and desserts with just a handful of ingredients!
