Natural + Lovely Pantry


Summer is slowly coming to an end.  The days are already cooling off and I am looking forward to the fresh crisp air of the fall season. As the weather turns, so does my kitchen flair.  Recipes and images of baked treats and warm cozy soups start to fill my head. It's time to prepare my little pantry for this new season.  As I prepare, I thought I could give you all a little peak into my pantry this week.  Sound fun?  My plan is to share all the more unusual ingredients and brands I currently use and what few core items I always keep fresh in the fridge for quick and easy meals. I linked the markets I currently shop, but I also gather many of the fresh items at local farmers markets, when available.

Now, I must ask a favor of you before I begin. Some of you may disagree with my choices.  I accept your opinions and will be the first to say I do not always use the finest or best ingredients. I am choosing to be honest with you. Even though I will always encourage you to find the highest quality you can, this is not always an option.  It's important to recognize that most of us do not have the luxury of supplying our kitchen with the very best of every single ingredient.  That would be a heavenly kitchen to be sure! At this time in my life, I chose to purchase the highest quality ingredients I can, within my means.

Thank you for your gracious approach to my humble pantry. May this be a sweet little resource for you as you enjoy baking through my recipes this next season.  Follow the links or visit the markets I share to find the ingredients for yourself. If it's a local market and you do not live in San Diego, then check for it in your local health food stores.

Alrighty... here we go!
