Read an Excerpt

start with the list

We’ve all had that moment during the day when we ask, with a knot in our stomach, “What am I going to make for dinner?” We stand in our kitchens having a conversation with ourselves (hopefully, silently): I don’t have anything to make.… What I planned for doesn’t sound good.… I don’t have any time to cook, let alone get to the store.

We are all searching for a way to make the process easier. Many of us get discouraged into prepackaged complacency, which doesn’t satisfy any real cravings. (We’ve never heard anyone say, “You know what sounds good? Powdered milk with dehydrated broccoli!”) Bookstores contain a myriad of cookbooks touting catch-phrases like “quick and simple” or “cheap and easy.” The recipes may be quick, but they often require us to purchase random ingredients that we need a pinch of and then will never use again. We have, in the past, cluttered our pantries, refrigerators, and cupboards with hundreds of dollars’ worth of cookbooks and specialty items like red pepper paste. We were still left missing an easy-to-use, versatile, and effective system for getting dinner on the table. This is why we created The Stocked Kitchen.

The Stocked Kitchen is the first complete meal creation system with only one standard list of groceries. If your kitchen is “stocked” with these ingredients, you will always have what you need to create any of our recipes. These recipes have been used for all our own dining needs, including meals for drop-in guests, special occasions, and every-night dinners for our families. This system encompasses all parts of the meal creation process from shopping to storing to cooking to serving. The results are delicious, “guestworthy” meals made from real, basic ingredients. We have proved The Stocked Kitchen system works. It has reduced our grocery bills, our stress levels, our trips to the market, and our food waste. We create more delicious meals while removing the handcuffs of preplanning. It is so simple—“Start with the list”—but once you’ve incorporated it into your life, you will see how powerful The Stocked Kitchen philosophy can be. One grocery list, endless recipes!
