10 Staple Recipes...

Alternately titled...A Well Stocked Kitchen...

What are your go-to recipes? The ones that regularly make the menu or are always on standby in case of crazy days?

I have several. Quite a few of them center around pasta. What can I say? Pasta is quick. Everyone in my family loves it. Plus, in the time it takes for the pasta to cook, I can have the topping all put together.

Here are some staples I always have on hand...

-1 to 2 pounds of short pasta, like penne or cavatappi
-dry onion soup mix
-shredded yellow cheese, 1-2 pounds
-chicken thighs
-boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-cream cheese
-heavy cream
-parmesan cheese
-sour cream
-evaporated milk
-baking chocolate squares
-baking cocoa
-pesto (I make a batch & freeze half)
-ground beef
-cream soup

Here are links to my favorite go-to recipes. They are all quick, easy, and family favorites. They are familiar. These are the recipes my family terms comfort food...

Chicken Enchiladas
Depression Meatloaf
3 Ingredient Pesto Chicken
Green Noodles
Macaroni and Cheese
Oven Fried Potatoes
Chicken and Rice
Lava Cakes
