    Great Concept and Tasty Recipes

    This is a different kind of cookbook that not only has lots of recipes for appetizers, breakfast and brunch, salads and side dishes, main dishes, and desserts, but also includes a master grocery list of every ingredient needed. In other words, if you buy everything on the list, you now have what you need to make any recipe in the entire book. No second guessing. No standing in front of the pantry wondering what to make for dinner and whether you have what you need. No unnecessary trips to the grocery store for the one thing you don't have to complete a recipe. And no more bottles of unusual spices or special sauces that got used once for one recipe and now sit past their "use by" date in the back of the pantry or fridge.

    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.

    I would say that more experienced cooks probably already have their own version of this plan as they keep the pantry stocked for favorite recipes, but it's nice to have it already done in one book like this. It would be a good wedding shower gift or for a young mom who may feel overwhelmed with menu planning and grocery shopping as she navigates through a busy schedule and what to have for dinner.

    Good concept, good recipes

    This book has helped me make decent basic meals without a lot of planning. So far, all meals were liked by my picky eaters. I appreciate the choice of recipes and the helpful suggestions. This book is perfect for working moms.
