Now that the kids are back in school, now is the time to start getting your pantry in order for the holidays. Start by stocking your shelves with all the basics like flour, sugars, chocolate, nuts, raisins, and of course some holiday sprinkles. Taking inventory lets you know what you have on hand and what you need, so make a list and check it twice and save yourself some time by eliminating extra shopping trips.
Also be sure to check the date on your Baking powder and Baking soda, often they sit around too long and they lose their ability to work effectively. Fresh baking ingredients will ensure your baking projects come out fabulous.
