This would have been ideal for me say 5 years ago, when I still cooked with a lot of cans, mixes, sauces and partially prepared items. This book is not for those who want everything from a box and just put it together, but it also has a lack of recipes where all the items come in their completely natural state, say dried beans instead of canned beans, or garden fresh tomatoes instead of cans, makes bread from scratch rather than canned or frozen dough, etc. Because of that I would say this is for the "in between" cook, the one who does actually turn on the stove and cook every night, but not the one who uses ingredients from bulk bins or the back yard garden, or makes bread completely from scratch. If that person is you, this book will likely be loved.
If you tend more to the completely from scratch cooking, this cookbook will be less desirable unless you are willing to adapt it, but then you need to change the recipes a tad, and the handy grocery lists in the back are not as useful. Hence I gave this book 4 stars, because it is nicely written, pretty and organized, but not for my cooking style personally.
It's one thing to have a lot of food ingredients on hand and another to actually have a plan to use them without waste. The Stocked Kitchen solves that by streamlining ingredients so that a food item or seasoning is used in several different recipes. Something like balsamic vinegar, instead of being used once for a salad dressing, shows up in 12 recipes; garlic powder is used in 37 recipes, calamata olives in nine, pine nuts in 13, puff pastry is used in 11 recipes, etc., while still offering plenty of variety. This is a great plan for busy moms because the list is already made out and once the items are in the pantry, fridge, and freezer, anything from the cookbook can be prepared.
I've made several recipes with good results, including Baked Penne, Nutty Chicken, and Feta Chicken With Spinach. There are several other recipes I'm looking forward to trying. Some color photographs are included to showcase several of the dishes.Read more ›
This one was recommenced by a sister in-law that uses it religiously and LOVES it.
The shopping list is easy and most functional kitchens will have a majority of whats needed. We decided to gather all the recommended ingredients over time as we need them and just buy a couple extra cans/bags of the things with long expiration dates.
I can see this being a PERFECT wedding gift to guide a couple starting out. I can see myself adapting some of out family favorite recipes to be more in line with this book.
I like that it doesn't block me from being able to choose organic or all natural ingredients. :) You can follow their recipes in your own way.
If you are just starting and have no idea what are good basic staples for a pantry.
The items on the pantry list are pretty typical and basic.
You are able to open you cabinet and fridge make a meal, maybe missing produce, which you can pick up on way home from work.
Recipes are easy to follow and understand.
Nice pics on the few recipes they show.
Fairly quick time on dish.
Just my opinion, too many recipes I wouldn't use.
Limited on the variety of fruits and veggies.
A lot of pre made foods, like canned beans, canned veggies and frozen dough can be handled a different way.
It's not hard to soak beans for hours and cook, cool then freeze in serving size. Frozen veggies are healthier than canned and usually thaw while cooking the dish. Fresh mushrooms will cook with meal and you can purchase those whole or sliced.Read more ›

NO photos. Text only. Well written with focus on entertaining. Good concept, but feels limited in focus. Lack of photos short changes reader on details of recipes.Published 8 months ago by T. Haft

This is a good cook book to have. As for the list there are things I will add and some I will delete. I do wish there were less appetizer recipes and more main dish one's though.Published 15 months ago by Carin
