Hey guys! I know we’re all getting a ton of news and information thrown at us about Coronavirus in the last few weeks, but no matter how you’re feeling about the situation, you probably already know that the grocery stores are getting wiped out. Today I’m sharing a few recipes to help keep your kitchen stocked with essentials, and reduce waste. You can make these recipes primarily with items you already have!

High-Altitude Sandwich Bread

This is one of the most popular recipes on my website, and it’s definitely one of my own favorites. I know at my local stores, bread is in short supply along with many other items, so it’s a good time to learn to make your own! This recipe is super easy, and super simple.

Banana Bread

If you’ve got kids like me, you might have a few forgotten bananas sitting out on the counter. It’s a good time to waste less food, so don’t forget about those over-ripe bananas- give them a second life with a super easy banana bread.

Easy Quiche

Another popular recipe on Dough-Eyed, this quiche comes together super quickly. The best part- you can really use anything you have in your fridge right now in terms of veggies- broccoli, asparagus, peppers, really any kind of cheese- it’s a great way to use up some random leftovers and make a new meal with it. Plus it’s a great breakfast for dinner option! 

Homemade Cheese Crackers

My grocery store was pretty cleared out of junk food as well, but we still have access to a lot of dairy products like butter and cheese. If you’re family is in need of some snacks, this is a super delicious recipe that is awesome no matter what your pantry situation looks like!

High-Altitude Vegan Chocolate Cake

This is my favorite chocolate cake recipe, period. It has a wonderful flavor and texture, plus it’s vegan! In this case, that means you don’t need to worry about having eggs, butter, or milk. Everything in this recipe is a simple pantry ingredient, and the result is amazing!

Stay safe and happy out there guys!

    I made your Focaccia bread for a dinner party and it was amazing. Easy to make and light as a feather and delicious. Will definitely make this in the future and maybe add some Asiago cheese. ❤️❤️

    At what altitude were these recipes created? I've made a few things and didn't have success.

      Hi Debbie! I'm sorry to hear that- I'm at about 5,000 ft, so that's how I test all my recipes. If you're higher, I'd be happy to suggest some changes to specific recipes to help out!

        I would love any help you can give me! I'm at 9000 ft. Breads tend to sink when taken out of the oven and the edges are hard. Cakes tend to be rather dry. We moved here 2 years ago from a location at 670 ft. and cooking/baking was wonderful. This new altitude has been more than a challenge. Thanks!

    The sandwich bread recipe was excellent. I was looking for a nice all purpose bread since it's been hard to come by. I've been really enjoying your website and cookbook!

    We live at 7000 ft in Flagstaff, Arizona and my husband is allergic to eggs. I have searched for a good chocolate cake recipe for years and yours is the best ever! Thank you! I will be searching your site for other eggless recipes that will work at our altitude.

      I'm so glad to hear that!! And I'm expanding on my recipes that work for those with allergies, etc, so hopefully more eggless things soon!
