This is a great book with good, old-fashioned recipes that you can make from food storage ingredients. It even has instructions on making pastries that look like they come from a bakery. The recipes in this book use ingredients that you may find in your basic food storage plus ideas and recipes for all types of meal entrees. There is even a section on tofu for those who love the magic of the soybean. This book is a great addition to have with your food storage or just to include with your collection of cookbooks.
