75 Pantry Essentials Every Cook Needs
Every cook needs a well-stocked kitchen and if you don't already have one, now is the perfect time to start working towards one. With these items in your pantry, you should be able to whip up a tasty meal quickly. Being well stocked is like having money in the bank; not only will it make meal time easier but it also makes cooking more enjoyable.

Don't see something you think I should have on hand but it is not listed then just leave me a comment. I know I'd appreciate it. Just remember that not every cook needs the same ingredients but at least my list will give you a good start.
