Whether you’re moving into your first apartment, or starting over across the country, knowing what to buy is essential so you don’t waste time and dollars. Here are my recommendations for what every kitchen should be outfitted with.
Light Brown Sugar
Whole Pepper for Grinder
Apple Cider Vinegar
Oil (I suggest Soy, but you can also get Canola or Vegetable)
Non-Hydrogenated Vegetable Shortening
Tomato Paste Tube
Jar of Sundried Tomatoes
Jar of Green Olives
Jar of Roasted Red Peppers
Dried Beans (I suggest Navy Beans and Kidney Beans)
Dried Pasta (I suggest spaghetti, rotini, and mostaccoli)
The above items will get you started in your new home. As you get settled (and learn to cook, if that’s the case) you’ll add items you find you need or want. But with everything listed here, you can do basic baking, and cooking when you add fresh vegetables and meat/fish into the mix. Happy Cooking!
