Cooking was the Furthest Thing from My Mind…
I own a successful catering company, my Mother was a Home Economics Teacher, and my Father was a Cook in the United States Marines Corp, so you might think I was born with a mixing spoon in my hand.
But not so fast…
When I was younger, I actually had no burning desire to cook. The only meal I knew how to prepare after graduating High School and leaving the United States Air Force, was spaghetti and eggs and bacon.
It took hanging around my twin brother to pique my interest into the culinary world. I was always amazed at his gift in the kitchen.
I remember once going with him to check in on a close friend who was very sick and lived alone. The friend told my brother he had absolutely nothing in the house to eat. I followed my brother into the kitchen where he opened the refrigerator, freezer and all the cabinets, and just pondered.
My brother wrote up a shopping list of items for me to go to the store to purchase. To my surprise when I arrived back to the home, my brother had conjured up an entire meal. I asked him, where he got the food from. His response was, “it was always here, I just had to get creative with what was on hand”.
I was blown away, and that day was the start to my love of all things culinary, and the seed was planted for Bon Appetit Y’all® and Pantry Picks®.
Our goal is sharing fun, creative and sassy Sauces, Seasonings, Sweets and Savories that will pique your child-like curiosity and motivate you to play in the kitchen more (and maybe even with your food!).
Our Pantry Picks® Everyday Gourmet Condiment Subscription will help you transform the ordinary into extraordinary.

Many of the items featured in our Pantry Picks® are items we have used almost every day and have for years, in Occasional Occasions by Carlton’s catering kitchen.
If you were ever fortunate enough to have been a guest at one of our catered events, you’ve most likely experience some of our Pantry Picks® selections.
Your membership will take on a seasonal flair too!
For example, during the summer months, one of our most popular offerings is Grilled Chicken with Peach Bourbon Barbecue Sauce (you can’t get more southern than Bourbon and Peaches). The combination together in this Barbecue Sauce is absolutely unbeatable.
We marinate the grilled chicken, and so many other items with our house made Herbalicious Seasoning. This is an all-purpose seasoning/marinade with so much flavor you literally won’t need to season most things with anything else.
