Lunch with Lauren Pantry List

One of my biggest pet peeves is having to run to the grocery store more than once a week. I’ve heard that many of you have to make multiple trips and that is one of the factors in making mealtime so stressful. You may open a recipe and see that you don’t have a minor (or major) ingredient and scrap it altogether or get in the car and spend 30 minutes trying to find buttermilk.… Read More »

Prep Food Junction – Literally A Hidden Gem


I was having a day that required tacos and rallied some adventurous friends to try out Let’s Taco Bout It.
