From the Pantry

From the Pantry


One of the great things about crockin’ is the chance to be creative! It’s fun to just open up the pantry, start throwin’ things together, and discover a new recipe or two! To do this though, it’s important to keep some essentials in the pantry. Here’s a list of key ingredients we find helpful when it comes to making  a variety of recipes. Keep these on hand and you’ll find crockin’ just became even easier!

  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Rotel
  • Canned Beans (pinto, black, ranch-style)
  • Cream of Chicken
  • Cream of Mushroom
  • Cheese Soup
  • Stock/Broth
  • Canned Corn
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Jar of Salsa
  • Jar of Spaghetti Sauce
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Noodles/Pasta
  • Rice

  • Garlic (fresh cloves or refrigerated jar)
  • Taco Seasonings
  • Italian Dressing Mix
  • Onion Soup Mix

    I want to say thank you for this list; I have been so happy that when I choose a recipe, I usually have what I need in the pantry! As a matter of fact, one of our local grocery stores had a 10 for $10.00 sale; my husband went and bought 10 cans of Rotel (yes we use it A LOT!) and 5 cans of each cream soups.
    Without me asking!
    As soon as I use one of the items, I immediately put it on my grocery list for replacement.
    I can’t tell you how much easier it’s been to feed my family since I’ve found you girls! Even on the nights that I don’t have something in the crock, I can find a simple, delicious dish to prepare for my family. They almost eating IN more than eating OUT anymore!
    Thank you!!! May God continue to bless you girls and your families. :)

    That is what it is all about, Kimberly! And how sweet of your hubby to help out, too. Thanks for sharing. That is exactly why Jenna and Nicole started the page…so moms everywhere could get a yummy dinner on the table without all the mess and spending all night in the kitchen cooking and cleaning. They like to say slow cookin’ is so much better than fast foodin’! So glad y’all are eating in more as a family :) Happy Crockin’ to ya!
