The Prepper's Cookbook is an excellent resource and foundation that covers many topics of preparation. Especially helpful for the seeker and the new-to-prepping...

Not only is it a must-have for any survival bookshelf - but you can use it daily to create fantastically healthy and great-tasting meals for the whole family!

The beauty of this cookbook is that basic prep information is contained in one easy-to-read, well-organized book... 
--Survival Blog

It's more than a cookbook. It's also a handy guide for beginning preppers who have wondered, "So what do I actually do with all this extra food I'm buying?"

I just received this book and sat down for several hours checking the entire book. The beginning has a concise description of water bath and pressure canning. Even if you'd never done it before, you could learn it from this section. I can say this with confidence because I've been canning for more than 30 years and know what a beginner would need.

This book is aimed at people who already have an interest in stocking up so it uses items commonly found in a prepper's stash. It's a well-known truism that you should rotate your food storage. So, if you've been afraid to try it, this book should motivate you to actually make soups, stews, meat dishes from your stores. I especially liked the section on making your own dried soup mixes! I have food allergies and most commercial dried soups contain things I can't have. This book solves that problem and expands my possibilities. The recipes for dehydrated beef jerky and fruit leathers look good. I would have liked some information on what to do about dehydrating without power, just as she included information on canning outside on an open fire.But this is a small complaint compared to all that this book does contain.

There is also a section on substitutes that would help a cook any time there's something missing in the pantry. Don't have butter? Recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have it? Don't have whipped cream for a dessert topping? There are instructions on how to make your own substitutes. I tried the whipped topping already. Not bad! Actually, pretty good. It's made from dried milk, something most preppers store. There is a wonderful section on creating your own herbal mixtures for different recipes. What if you couldn't get your favorite McCormick Spice blend? Check this section.

Recently, I had the pleasure to review The Prepper's Cookbook, 300 Recipes to Turn Your Emergency Food Into Nutritious, Delicious, Life-Saving Meals by Tess Pennington. This book contains practical information for the beginning as well as for seasoned preppers, but doesn't stop there. It's more than a cookbook of great recipes. It's a how-to guide for preppers and newbies.

In the introduction to the book, Ms. Pennington sets up a beautiful and rich story of the history of these recipes from tales of her great, great grandmother, who traveled across Oklahoma in a covered wagon with seventeen children. They not only lived on the food that they produced, but also put a portion of their harvest aside for future use.

She addresses homesteaders and preppers as neo-pioneers and begins her book by starting with the basics of prepping, food storage and rotation. Topics such as how much food to store, how to rotate your supplies and why you need to store certain types of foods are covered. There is even good advice offered on how to economically stretch your meals.

Ms. Pennington then addresses how to store and treat potentially unsafe water for use.

In the next section, food preservation is tackled. This section contains information on water bath and pressure canning including considerations for "Canning Off The Grid". It also covers the topic of dehydration, including some delicious recipes for jerky.

The Prepper's Cookbook then moves on to the mouth-watering recipes which encompass everything from breakfast to dinner and from snacks to desserts. The meals listed go from from simple to complex and include a great variety of cultural (Southern, Italian, Greek and Tex-Mex) recipes as well as comfort food.

Not only do you get 300 great recipes for the every day cook, but you get the added bonus of how to create your own food storage for worst case events. You don't have to be a "Prepper" to own this book, its great for even the average Joe or Jane.

I don't usually buy cookbooks but this one captured my interest. We live in an area that is called tornado alley in the summer and also has terrible snowstorms in the winter. After seeing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the suffering of the residents of that area, I decided to become a disaster prepper. I want to have one months supply of good quality food on hand for my family. The recipes in this cookbook are foods my family could eat on a regular basis but also teaches me how to store my supplies in mylar bags or mason jars. We never could eat some tasteless powdered food or freeze dried menu. This well thought out book also goes into detail about how much food for each person and everything else you need on hand to make mealtime during an emergency a little more like a mealtime during normal times. God forbid, if disaster strikes I don't want my family to just survive. I want to keep things as normal as I can, especially at mealtime.

If you have been struggling to find recipes for your food storage, look no further, this book has some great ideas. It would also be a great reference to simply keep on hand in a disaster situation when you look at what you have and think "what, oh what, can I possibly make with what I have?" I purchased this book by mistake thinking I was buying a different one, but I am glad I have it now.
