Many fine and simple meals are based on dairy. The well-curated pantry includes dairy and non-dairy alternatives that fit one's preferences. The SimplyCooking® collection of recipes focuses on simplicity not dietary choices, so the SimplyCooking® Pantry listing covers both traditional and alternative dairy. There is great range in the form these products can take - from pre-grated cheese pouches to raw, local, small batch or vegan based cheeses- and room for experimentation, personal choice based on time and budget. Here are general comments about the SimplyCooking® list:
•Almond milk substitutes perfectly for cow’s milk in every SimplyCooking® recipe.
•In cooking, whole milk simply produces a superior result to 2% or skim milk. One benefit of cooking from scratch is achieving a richness and depth of flavor so we're satisfied by eating a smaller portion.
•Coconut milk I've added recently as it provides a creamy quality for soups and desserts.
•Buttermilk can be substituted by stirring a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon into a cup of whole milk and sitting for a few minutes.
•There are fine local cheeses almost everywhere. They make a simple meal extravagant.
•All recipes in the SimplyCooking® recipe collection are made from the SimplyCooking® pantry of ingredients.
