I get a good amount of questions about pantry staples. I always suggest having grains, pasta and rice in your cupboards. This way a full-on meal, along with a few fresh ingredients, is only a few minutes away. And then, of course, I love to have things like dried mushrooms, dried fruit and nuts, a fully stocked spice cabinet and good olive oil and a variety of vinegars. When it comes to freezer staples, I always recommend making sure someone refills the ice cube tray. I’m personally the worst at this. Oh and definitely a few sheets of frozen puff pastry.
