Welcome! I’m Abbey – the recipe creator, writer, and photographer behind My Casual Pantry. I love coffee, chocolate, the season of Fall, and all things holiday. Most of all, I love casual, everyday food. I’m happiest cooking and baking for the people I love. The kitchen is truly my happy place. I created My Casual Pantry to share my love of food with you! My food is comfortable and casual, not fussy. These recipes are a combination of favorites from my childhood and others that have become new traditions with my family. I hope you enjoy your time in the kitchen sharing these recipes with your family.
