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.
this book gave me some ideas to add to, it isn't a full recipe book but gives good information. I like it because it give me small food that doesn't take up much room plus you can build on it. Noodles would take up a lot of room unless you break them down no use to use them if you they are broken. I like the bow tie noodles which takes up little room and are more like noodles. For me this works great.
As another reviewer has stated, there are items which you will have to do some research, if you intend to use the recipes. This book is for cooking with food storage, not a general recipe / cookbook. If you are experienced with food storage, you may have some of the items. If not you will have to purchase some. All the items used in the jars are intended for long-term food storage (2-5 years, or longer). The initial start up for items such as TVP, dehydrated cheese, tomato powder, may be expensive, but these items can be used in a lot of different recipes.
Also, another reviewer stated most recipes call for more than one jar, and that the title is misleading. Again, the statement is true, but there is a reason why... Some items in recipes cannot be stored with others. In addition, each jar, seasoning bag, etc. is used during a different cooking process. In the soups, all items can be thrown in together. But, in recipes like the Lasagna, items are cooked in different order. It is no different than cooking your own recipe or dinner. Another reason all items do not fit into a single jar is because these recipes create a lot of food. I made the pasta soup, and was able to feed four adults. Of the recipes I have cooked, they are intended for a family of four, not just one or two servings.
This is a great book, and I highly recommend it for putting together meals using food storage. I only wish there were more recipes, and estimates for the nutritional content was provided.
