Shy of 20: What’s In My Pantry

 

  1. Toyo (Soy Sauce) – a staple in Filipino dishes
  2. Suka (Vinegar) – another staple in Filipino dishes
  3. Patis (Fish Sauce) – an umami miracle maker
  4. Hot Sauce – actually I have 3 different kinds! – simply because I’m hot…um I meant I like spicy foods
  5. Cooking Oil – duh!
  6. Olive Oil – for flavor and pasta
  7. Balsamic Vinegar – mixed with olive oil and spices it’s a quick vinaigrette or dipping sauce for bread
  8. Knorr Seasoning – a magic addition to any thing you cook
  9. Worcestershire Sauce – the only sauce I need for steaks
  10. Margarine
  11. Salt – another duh
  12. Pepper – I love pepper
  13. Cumin – to give meats a smokey flavor and it can flavor any (non green leafy) vegetable Indian style (you can add some curry too).
  14. Curry Powder – add to meat, vegetables, rice… it changes things up.
  15. Italian Seasoning – add to pasta, cream of whatever soup, vinaigrette, herbed chicken, herbed steak, herbed rice…
  16. Broiled Steak Seasoning – I like steak and this is an easy way to marinade it
  17. Chili Flakes – again, I like spicy food.
  18. Sugar – when I need a kick of sweetness in my dishes or drinks
  19. Honey – perfect for when you want to glaze meat or vegetables.
