I agree with the previous poster that mentioned King Arthur Flour. I am a pretty serious baker and I love this brand. I rarely have something not turn out. Check out the King Arthur Flour as they have some great information and education on their site. Even if you don't purchase their flour there are always tips! Best of luck to you and may you enjoy many years of baking.

My preference is to have a well stocked pantry with everything I could possibly need no matter what I am in the mood to bake. For that reason, I always stock self rising flour, unbleached all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour and whole wheat berries. The baker's pantry should also be stocked with free-dried eggs, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt and whole spices.

Here is another link that might be helpful. Home bakers flour (http://www.kingarthurflour.com/flour/home.html - broken link)

For a well stocked pantry I think that depends on the baker. Some very basic items:
all purpose flour
salt
baking soda
baking powder
sugar
brown sugar
sifter (technically a tool, not an ingredient )
vanilla
cocoa powder
butter, butter and more butter

Oh, what fun you will have!

You should add dried milk to the list as some recipes for the bread machine call for it.
