The Cooking Pantry by author Tracy Roberts uses ingredients you can purchase and store in your pantry allowing you to fix dinner in a pinch. In a pinch, at least to me, means when I am rushed for time or perhaps I need to take a pantry walk. For the unknowing a pantry walk is when you decide to establish a set amount of time where you plan to use pantry ingredients to make your meals. I do this sometimes when the pantry is full and needs to be eaten from or when we need to save money. Using cookbooks such as the Cooking from the Pantry will help me use up what I've stashed away in my pantry.

Some of the recipes you will find in her cookbook include:

Simple Chicken & Dumplings

Awesomely Easy Oven Fried Chicken: It would have helped if the author and defined what IQF stands for. IQF stands for individually frozen chicken pieces, if I remember right. Also, Roberts did not state how much Bisquick to use in this recipe. A good cookbook clearly states the ingredient amounts in the ingredient list.

Happy, Happy Hamburger Gravy: The ingredients list is incomplete as there is no amount given for the thickener. Also, the author does not state or suggest what kind of spices to use in the recipe.

The author clearly states she uses affiliate links in her cookbook allowing the reader to make purchases giving her a small commission. Some how I found this a bit irritating although Roberts clearly states you can "If that bothers you, just go directly to the product website or do a quick Google search."

While I really wanted to like this cookbook, and I could probably cook from it easily as I've cooked for close to 50 years, this cookbook would probably not serve an inexperienced cook well.

Recommend with caveats given.

This cookbook needs ALOT of work. If you are going to write a cookbook, shouldn't you use amounts of the ingredients used and spell them correctly? I guess you do get what you pay for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the recipes July 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this little guide and cookbook by Tracy Roberts. She's a funny writer and shares hands on tips for making dinner out of (almost) nothing and make it quickly. Her recipes look wonderful. We had the potato soup last night and it was a huge hit. I'll be coming back to this cookbook regularly. There's also a basic grocery list that will come in handy in the coming weeks.

My kids tell me all the time that I have ingredients.. not food in the pantry! Being able to pull things together takes time and talent. This book will help you organize and use what you have on hand and save that trip to the store or keep you from calling pizza man yet again this week.
