About the Author
Kathy Clark is a devoted wife and full time mother of two wonderful children. She enjoys learning to use food storage and has created these recipes as a way to have a supply of easily prepared meals for busy days while simultaneously using and rotating her food storage. Many friends and family continually asked for her recipes, and so she compiled them into this book to share with all who wanted quick and easy premixed dinners using food storage for use and gifts. She earned a law degree at Loyola Law School of California, and practiced family law in Beverly Hills, California. She has retired to raise her family and now lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

This amateurish attempt at a cookbook is NOT quick, NOT easy, and ridiculously over-priced. The positive reviews must have been written by the friends and family of the author. I hope you take this warning to heart and don't waste $15 bucks like I did. There is a blog on the internet that has (for free!) some great recipes for dry canning freeze dried ingredients and has ALL of those ingredients contained in one mason jar for a meal. Google Chef Tess Bakeresse blog and look at her 52 jar method. If you want a one jar meal that is shelf stable for 5-7 years then Chef Tess is the resource for you.
Honestly I felt this was put together and ran on a printing press at the local high school for a class project. It gave me ideas but I ended up not using the book.
There were only one or two that I would bother to put together. Good information is there on how tto get jared dry things to keep. Things like vacuum sealing, aluminized mylar bags, oxygen and moisture absorbers, etc., but most of the "Dinner in a jar" recipies had you needing other things that were not in the jar, like eggs, meat, tomatoes, etc. The copyable directions were a good idea, too, but it seems that to fix many of these meals, you need to put together a collection of stuff that made what was in the jar seem like just a small part.
It would be nice if these dinners actually were complete in the jars, only needing water or something that simple.
