Tired of making the same few things from your pantry-friendly foods? Even restaurant industry foodies feel like they’re running out of unique ideas to cook for themselves and their families while sheltering in place. So we’re here to spice things up. We reached out to our friends in the restaurant industry for some of their favorite recipes that you can make right in your own home.

Celebrity chefs and professionals with over 140 + combined years in the restaurant industry pitched in some relatively easy recipes that can be made with ingredients that are likely already sitting in your pantry. If not, you can easily find them at a local grocery store (in your mask, of course!).

While we still encourage everyone to support their favorite restaurants with take-out orders much as possible, we understand that it can become a bit taxing on some already tightened purse strings. So dive in and enjoy one of these 12 chef-inspired recipes from the chefs we’ve grown to know and love over our many years together in the restaurant industry – we know we will!
