A lot of things have changed in the past few months in the face of COVID-19, but one thing that remains constant is the need to cook and nourish yourself, or your family. In this weekly guide, we provide recipes that you can easily pull off based on pantry staples and what you might have on hand. We provide tweaks and substitutions you might need, keeping in mind that access to fresh ingredients may be hard to come by. We hope you use it as inspiration to turn out healthy and hearty meals while riding out this storm at home. Stay safe, be well and take some comfort in the kitchen.
