A College Kithcen Guide: Cupboard Classics

These are a few basics that I keep in our cupboards. Some of them may be unusual, but it is surprising how often some of them show up!

  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Bouillon cubes or undiluted stock for chicken, beef and vegetables
  • Brown sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Cooking oil (a lot of students just pick up olive oil, but it is important to have an affordable alternative. Olive oil is also important.)
  • "Cream of" soups (synonym for SAUCE. Chicken and mushroom especially.)
  • Dry soups (onion is really handy)
  • Dry yeast? (Look forward to bread baking in your crock pot!
  • Honey
  • Tuna
  • Canned vegetables (we like corn)
  • Macaroni or pasta
  • Rice
  • Kidney beans, dried or canned
  • Vanilla extract
  • Garlic
  • Wheat and white flour
  • Vinegar (plain, red wine, apple. Combine for a fresh smelling drain cleaner!)
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Soya sauce
This list if probably the most incomplete. Everyone uses different things more than others, the trick is in the gathering.
