Hello and welcome! I am Bintu and I love creating fresh, exciting recipes with color, flavor and a dash of spice. You will find good food made with real ingredients, ranging from colorful healthy dishes to decadent desserts and everything in between.

I want to get you creating exciting dishes from whatever ingredients you find in your pantry. Anyone can do this, cooking just needs practice and imagination. I grew up helping my Gran and favorite Aunt cook meals for our super-extended family and through that have tested my recipes a million times so that I bring you only the best recipes for you to enjoy.

Recipes from a Pantry is a blog that brings you EASY RECIPES, ones that you will be cooking again and again wether for busy weeknight dinners, easy lunches and brunches, festive family gatherings or make ahead and meal prep recipes.
