Tastier, Healthier, Homemade
You work hard to make dinner--choosing the best food, mastering preparation techniques, and picking the perfect recipes. But what about the unsung staples, the ingredients and condiments that build and accompany your meal? Too often, the store-bought versions are loaded with extra salt, sugar, allergens, and preservatives, and they end up bland and uninspiring. But you don't have to limit yourself to the same tastes and the same plastic bottles. With The Kitchen Pantry Cookbook, you can create your own staples--fresh, delicious, and just the way you like them. Chef and winner of Food Network's Guy's Grocery Games, Erin Coopey shows you 90+ recipes and variations to personalize your pantry. You'll never go back to the bottles!
