The Stocked Kitchen is the first complete meal creation system that make getting dinner on the table every night stress free and economical. Start with the list! The philosopy behind The Stocked Kitchen is that if your home is “stocked’ with items on our recommended Grocery List, you are prepared for any dining situation, including drop in guests, special occasions, and nightly dinners with your family. ALL the recipes found in The Stocked Kitchen recipe books use ONLY the items on our one standardized Grocery List. No more worrying about what to make or if you have all the necessary ingredients.


I received a print review copy of The Stocked Kitchen. Sections include The System, Using The System, and Recipes. Chapters within Recipes include Appetizers, Salads, Soups Stews Chilis and Breads, Pastas and Pizzas, Chicken Meat and Seafood, Beans Potatoes Rice and Veggies, Desserts, and Breakfast or Brunch. What an interesting cookbook! In the beginning there is a grocery list, which I’d recommend copying. The items on that one page list are the only ingredients you need to make the 300 plus recipes in the cookbook. Each of the recipes calls for ordinary ingredients and is easy to understand. There are photos of a few of the recipes but they’re grouped all together in two sections in the middle of the book. I’d prefer to see the photos accompany their recipes. Lots of tips, how to’s and helpful explanations are scattered throughout the book. The cookbook would be a great addition to any collection. It was also be a great gift for someone just getting into cooking or someone trying to organize their cooking and meal planning.

I have planned for years food for weeks but not meal by meal–my pantry stores and freezer are the keys to making things work.

I could really use something like this. I have been wanting to get more organized for the past two years.

I had the chance to thumb through this book at the book store the other night, I like that handy shopping list, a good book to help cut back on wasted food and over spending while shopping. Got this one on my wishlist and picked up a copy for my niece getting married this fall, she is going to love it.
