Hi, I'm Rebecca and I’m a busy wife and mom of 3 kids ages 15 years to 15 months! As if that wasn’t enough my day job is working for a non-profit organization as the Human Resources Manager. I live in Sin City but about as far removed from the strip as you can get in every way possible. As a busy working mom (on a non-profit salary) I am always trying to find ways to feed my family good, healthy food at a price we can afford. I love to cook but have also had a little bit of a learning curve figuring out how to cook for a family, on a budget and still make something I want to eat! I’m definitely not a professional chef but since I have been inspired but so many others I figured I would start posting some of my ideas as well… Enjoy and happy cookin’!
What is Pantry Cookin’?
Pantry cookin’ is my term for a budget friendly method of meal planning and cooking that involves using staples most people regularly have in their pantry. Have you ever found a recipe that sounds great and then realize you don’t have all the ingredients or worse yet the ingredients are way out of your price range. Pantry cookin’ focuses on family friendly recipes that you can make without having to go to the store on a week night for extra ingredients. You also won’t find many recipes that take more than 30 minutes of prep time unless there it’s a holiday! With two toddlers under foot it better be fast or I won’t be cooking it very often!
