Let’s be honest: it’s an uncertain and frightening time. But you and your family still need to eat, and the act of cooking at home while quarantining can bring great comfort to all your loved ones. 

You can make a good meal out of a few staples if you have enough stocks at home. But your choices are even greater if you are able to shop at a grocery store or have your ingredients delivered to you.
