Hello and Happy Autumn!

Sorry I haven't posted for a long while. Organizing still goes on...organizing how to pack my suitcase for my trip to Omaha and New York.
Now let the organizing begin in my pantry. Upon us are months of baking, preparing, cooking and to have your pantry stocked saves you time and money.

First let's start with a list of basics for your pantry...

Baking powder
Baking soda
Beans, canned: black beans, red kidney, white
Beans, dried: red kidney, great northern, lentils, split pea, black, pinto
Bread crumbs
Broth, dried and canned: beef, vegetable, chicken
Cereal
Chocolate: unsweetened squares, semisweet chips, cocoa powder
Cooking spray
Cornmeal
Cornstarch
Crackers
Dried fruits: raisins
Extracts: vanilla, lemon, almond, orange
Flour: All-purpose, whole wheat, cake, bread
Fruit preserves, jam, jelly
Garlic, fresh
Gelatin: powdered, unflavored
Milk: boxed, powdered, evaporated milk
Nuts: almonds, peanuts, walnuts, pecans, pine nuts
Onions: red and yellow
Pasta, dried: spaghetti, linguini, angel hair, fettuccine, penne, noodles
Peanut butter
Potatoes, fresh
Rice
Soup: canned and dry bouillon
Sugar: granulated, confectioner's, light and dark brown
Tomatoes: canned whole, crushed, chopped, puree, sauce, fresh
Tuna, canned
Yeast, dry active (I keep my yeast in the freezer. It extends its life)

This list is an idea, but you need to specialize it to your needs.
