I found the book to be full of tips that will truly keep some savings in the pocket, and now a days we need to save anywhere we can. And the kitchen is an area that can easily explode a family budget.
If your looking for ways to cut back start in the kitchen and get this book, you will be glad you did. Very useful information that we all can implement.
About half the recipes given sounded just like staple food recipes I've used for years and are good. But a number of recipes use quite a bit of saturated fats...one recipe called for 3 cups milk or cream and 1 cup sour cream and 2 cups grated cheese. Other recipes call for 1 to 2 cups heavy cream. That's a lot of saturated fats in only one meal. No serving sizes are listed on many of the recipes. Other recipes such as cookies...one cookie is a serving.
If I were to use many of the recipes, I would have to modify the fats used with fat free or low fat substitutions. Or make other healthy substitutions such as using low fat Greek yogurt in place of sour cream,etc. I would also substitute the saturated fat with a healthy fat such as olive oil or other appropriate fats.
Inexperienced cooks might find substitutions or other recipe changes to be hard to do to make healthier versions of recipes.
Kindle version for several reasons is terrible on my Kindle Fire HD 8,9". The Freezer and Veg/fruit Charts are indented too much making them into a puzzle to figure out. This was so, despite changing font size down to a 4 point size and also rotating Kindle in hopes for the best. The other issue is formatting...page breaks should have been used between sections and also between recipes which would have made individual recipe reading much easier.
There are a few recipes, though nothing even remotely new or interesting, and definitely nothing exotic, trendy or ethnic.
If you don't already know to buy food in season, shop at farmer's markets or buy in bulk and freeze stuff, then you might be the audience for this book. I'm glad I got it for free.
Organic farm market and road stand Apple's cost around $2·50 a pound in the NY metro area not the ·49 cents price the author mentioned. Canning after working a 40 hour week
can be time consuming. Berries 200 feet outside your back door? Come on! Most of us don't live like this although it sounds nice.

The book is very good, my problem with it is that after 40-some years of homemaking, I didn't learn anything new as I had hoped.Published 3 months ago by Marilynn A. Matula
Great book, great suggestions. Some of it I already do, but also new ideas I haven't tried yet. I haven't tried the recipes yet, but I've bookmarked a few to try soon!Published 5 months ago by E. Pro

A good book for novices in saving money in the home. She does include some interesting and economical recipes such as making your own packets of instant oakmeal.Published 8 months ago by Lindah
I think Gerber is in the same class as Ben and Brian Night. This is a very padded "book" with
a few decent recipes and family stories that are irrelevant. Read more
