Pantry and Fridge Staples

Over the years, I’ve leaned toward keeping things as simple as possible, in preparation time and energy. It makes sense to have few ingredients because everything is easy to put away, shop for, and everything is fresh. One of the only things I bake is blueberry muffins, and I will post my recipe next. I try to only keep multi-purpose ingredients. Ingenuity and simplicity in the kitchen make for manageable and pleasant cooking and cleaning.
