Christy Rost Demonstrates Cooking With What You Have

We’ve counted on Christy Rost to provide us with amazing recipes for years now, and she even taught us how to wash our hands correctly – but now she is also going to help us cook with what we can find in our pantries.

It’s an especially necessary thing to learn during a shelter-in-place period of time, since finding ingredients and popular foods can be difficult at stores – sometimes that Amazon Fresh delivery looks more like a basket from Food Network’s Chopped than a collection of items to make several meals from.

“If you log in to my website, you’ll discover an ongoing selection of simple, but tasty Stay-At-Home recipes I’m developing with ingredients from my pantry,” Christy told us.

As she adds new recipes, you’ll be happy to see everything from Italian to Tex-Mex, to cakes, all easily assembled from common pantry and freezer items.
