Hi! My name is Wendy and welcome to  The Pantry Chronicles.  This is a blog where home cooks,  foodies and anyone else who wants to cook can find easy, creative and extensively tested recipes.   The  recipes have been baked and cooked and tweaked… over and over.  Some are reliable “stand-bys”  that have been used for years in our Cafe.   Others, I have created by de-constructing the classics.   In other words, this is not a blog about recipes that are  trendy, but not cooked. It does not include recipes that  “I hope to cook some day.”   These recipes are tried and true and  have performed  for years.

Life is to short for hopefuls and ingredients are too expensive for failures.  Lets just cook.
