we're planning a 12 day hike for July and will need to carry all of our food, so we're looking at an entirely freezer-bag cooking (FBC) trip to eliminate the need for pots and additional fuel. Sarah has some great recipes ideas on her website and there are additional recipes/techniques in this book. We will almost certainly adjust to fit our tastes, and we will not plan to carry pouches of anything, which she includes with most recipes (will dehydrate chicken, ground beef, tofu) to save weight, but this book is useful for basic ideas for FBC. Since we want to shoot for the 120 to 130 cal/oz goal to maximize calories/nutrition with minimum weight, it would have been helpful if nutrient breakdowns would have been included in this book. As it stands, we're using an online recipe calculator for this purpose.
The recipes are simple and easily adaptable to personal taste. Most of the recipes are perfect for simple food storage to use in an emergency. My kids love the fun of making freezer bag food and eating right out of the bag. When you finish the meal, just zip the bag shut with your trash inside for the easiest camping food clean-up ever.
To boil my water, I use a cat food can stove (google 'zen stoves'). This book, combined with a zen stove, has had the biggest positive impact on my camping experiences than anything else I can think of. Ditch the prepackaged food, buy this book, make your own zen stove, and enter camping food nirvana.
My only real problem has been that 'instant' rice does not rehydrate for me in less than 20 minutes, and the water MUST be BOILING. I won't give up, and potato/stuffing dishes are my favorite anyway, but I am glad we weren't out on the trail when we tested the first rice meal!
Excellent book. I'm planning to donate a copy to the Florida Hang raffle next year.

Some can easily be duplicated and others you will need to play around with and substitute.
Personally, if I had seen it, I wouldnt have bought it.
