By A. Bradshaw on February 5, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is a book geared toward, but not limited to, the Mormon population and it focuses on the products available from their church canneries. If you use it understanding these factors you can get a lot out of it. The recipes are basic family-friendly fare; delicious but not gourmet. I found the book, and Crystal's website, shortly after buying several food storage items that I planned to store for 20-30 years, and then throw out and replace if I didn't have to use them. The money was spent just to have a back-up, but now I'm using at least one or two items on a daily basis and I plan to use all of them and replenish as I go along. This is a much better use of my money and storage space.

There are positive and negatives about this book. First, the positive aspects:

You will learn how to actually USE your stored food on a daily basis. This really is the focus of the book and the web-site, not how to survive without power. Not only will you save money by not wasting the food you're storing, but you'll save money because food storage is generally cheaper than fresh foods. All the food storage I have uses no preservatives or artificial flavor or color enhancers, so I can use it as a convenience food without the additives found in many convenience foods.
The recipes are organized according to the type of stored food, i.e., powdered milk, powdered eggs, whole wheat, dried beans, dried vegetables and fruits.The layout makes it easy to find ways to use specific types of foods.
One interesting idea is to use dried beans to replace some or all of the fat in baked items (I prefer using half beans and half oil or butter because the flavor and texture are better).

I will concur with all reviewers who have previously noted that this book is clearly written by a person with a particular religious (Mormon/LDS) orientation and outlook.

Since I am a Jew, I hope I won't be accused of giving this book a good review just for being friends with the author. ;) Frankly, there is stuff in this book that is very far from my interests, but that doesn't make the book less useful in its own little way.

Fundamentally, this book is IDEAL as an introduction to how one might use one's food storage as part of daily cooking. It is actually arranged into chapters based upon adding food storage items into your daily cooking, one at a time. That means there is a chapter on Using Powdered Milk, Using Powdered Eggs, and Using Dried Beans. It also means that the recipes aren't arranged in the more typical way--based upon types of food like breakfast or dessert. Reading through the bean section then, one skips from recipes for cake to psuedo-sausage to cookies to chili. It can feel a bit odd, but it does make it easy to incorporate only those food storage items one may have opted to start with. Even better, recipes throughout the book consistently give both typical (refrigerator) ingredients and the food-storage equivalent (dried milk, dried eggs, etc.) Using this one small cookbook helps one to internalize this new "system" of cooking. I, for one, feel like I will be able to more readily adapt recipes from traditional cookbooks using what I've learned from this one. I love how I can take a recipe anywhere in this book and use those ingredients I have fresh and those ingredients I have from storage with clear instructions as to how I might do so.

This is an excellent book and a great resource for those of us who are buying food in bulk, beefing up our food storage and generally learning to cook with food storage ingredients.

Two notes that I didn't see in other reviews.

1. This is very much an LDS book in the very introduction. There is a whole section in the front of the book about having a Family Home Evening, for example. There is an assumption that you will agree or be saving food storage and learning to use it because you are LDS. This is a small portion of the book but if you are not LDS and are not interested in this, it might help to know about it.

2. This book is heavy on the dried milk, dried eggs, and similar ingredients. It barely, if at all covers things like cornmeal, whole wheat flour, and other ingredients that are a bit more difficult to cook with/grind etc.

Those two items were not an issue for me. However, my friend who is not LDS but has much in the way of survivalism, food storage type items found this book was a little light in some areas. If you already cook with food storage, this is probably a little bit simple for you.

If you are looking for a good all around beginning book for the basics of cooking with dried milk and other easy to find food storage items, this is a good book.

Okay, first off, let me just say, the closest I ever came to food storage before 2009, was some basic home canning, cake mixes and preparing for hurricane season year after year. Can you say canned soup, spam and canned fruits, etc. :o)

I ordered this book on January 6th, 1010, after searching online for about six months and getting frustrated, because I wanted to know -how- to use food storage, as well as what to store. I had clicked on different links and wound up on Crystal's website. I started searching & reading and loving her video tutorials and then after staying with her site for about 4 months I finally clicked on a link about her book that would help me. Perfect!

The first part of her book pertains to the LDS church and food storage, and family. Not being LDS myself, I first thought, oh great, there will not be anything in those sections for me and my family. Wrong! There is some great info in the beginning sections, whether LDS or not.

Now, this book is -not- supposed to be a comprehensive book, but what it is supposed to be is a book showing how to store and use your food storage items that sometimes can seem a little daunting if you are just starting out. e.g. dried beans, powdered milk, wheat berries, powdered eggs, and more! For someone like me, who didn't even know that there was such a thing as powdered eggs, let alone what a wheat berry was, I was amazed. And a little scared. I mean, powdered eggs? I hated baking and cooking with fresh eggs (bad experience with them), what the heck was I gonna do with powdered eggs?! Between this book and watching her videos (thank you Crystal for doing those!), I now use powdered eggs for ALL my baking and cooking.
