Book Review - Meals in a Jar: Quick and Easy, Just-Add-Water, Homemade Recipes

About the Book
Pull it off the shelf. Mix with water. Cook. Serve.

It’s as quick and easy as preparing a box of mac and cheese—but it’s not store-bought junk, it’s your favorite dishes made from scratch. With Meals in a Jar and a little planning, you’ll have your pantry stocked with healthy, delicious ready-to-cook meals, like:

• Tomato Soup with Cheese
• Cheddar Garlic Biscuits
• Cornmeal Pancakes with Syrup
• Breakfast Burritos
• Chicken Chipotle Soup
• Carnitas
• Braised Short Ribs
• Turkey Pot Pie
• Coq Au Vin
• Rustic Fruit Pie

Meals in a Jar is packed with step-by-step instructions for natural breakfasts, lunches, dinners and desserts that allow even the most inexperienced chefs to make scrumptious, nutritious dishes. Not only are the recipes in this book perfect for carry-along camping fare, rushed weeknight dinners and meals for Dad (or even a teenager) to prepare, they can also be life-savers in times of disasters like fires, blackouts or hurricanes.

My Take on the Book
This is the ultimate book that will prepare you for any evening meal. I was amazing at the number of great recipes that were throughout this book and how easy it was to put them together. I tried putting a few of these together and for the ones I tried, I had most of the ingredients already in the house which was perfect. Now I have a number of great meals ready to go when our weeknight is filled to the brim and I need a quick meal! If you are looking for a quick way to prepare meals for the future, look no further than this book - you will not be disappointed!
