The Final Frontier: A Senior Shopping Guide

Senior year is the best year for cooking. You’ve got all of the experience from freshman to junior behind you, and now you get to really experiment with your food.

The following list includes every ingredient needed for every recipe within the Senior Recipes list, so don’t be alarmed by the volume. You don’t have to buy every ingredient every time you go to the store, and a lot of these items can be bought in bulk and stored in the freezer.

Congratulations on all of your success!

Welcome to the Kitchen: A Junior Shopping Guide

Now that you have a full sized kitchen and fridge, you get to play with a lot more ingredients. Everything that you see on this list is utilized in at least one recipe in the Junior Recipes master list.

I’ve included everything here in the shopping guide, so don’t get too intimidated. Most of these items can be bought in bulk and therefore last you much longer than just one trip to the store. You won’t have to worry about buying this entire list every time, and you’ll be able to get by with a basic shop more times than not.

The Second Step: A Sophomore Shopping Guide

Now that you have access to a basic stove top and oven, you get to introduce more foods into your cooking-arsenal. This list does keep in mind that just because you have a kitchen, doesn’t mean you have a big fridge. These items are similar to the Freshman Shopping list, but they won’t be taking up any more space.

Just like last year,  almost every item on it only has to be bought about once a year. This list may look intimidating, but after the first big shop you’ll be breezing through the grocery store. Everything on this list is used in the entire Sophomore Recipe section, so you’ll never be missing an ingredient.

The Bare Essentials: A Freshman Shopping Guide

Just because you don’t have a kitchen, doesn’t mean you can’t have amazing food. The following list includes every single ingredient that is used in every recipe in the Freshman Recipes section. It’s an all-inclusive list, and with these items in your fridge you’ll never go hungry again.

The best thing about this list, is that almost every item on it only has to be bought about once a year. It may look intimidating, but there are very few items that need to be bought every trip to the store.
