Simplified Dinners {Review}

I was really intrigued when Mystie Winckler contacted me and offered Simplified Dinners to review. I enjoy cooking and am often on the lookout for simple but tasty quick meals to put on the table.  I get a lot of satisfaction trying to get them into one baking dish with minimum fuss.  The title jumped at me and I thought yes that sounds like me.

One of my goals is to simplify life so that I have more time for other things.  Having said this though the one thing I have come to realize is that feeding a family well involves becoming more health conscious and aware of what products contain. 

I loved Mystie's insight that in order to cut out the bad she needed to go on a simplification journey.  I'm there but in all honesty this takes a lot of effort.  Once I received Simplified Dinners I realized that Mystie has done all the work for me.

This is not just another cookbook to have on your shelf. (Most of mine are there collecting dust) This little gem is as it's name suggests simple to use!


Master Pantry List
This is one page of items. You can view a list of the ingredients online
It is divided into
  • Produce
  • Seasonings
  • Dry goods
  • Bottled Goods
  • Canned Goods
  • Dairy
  • Meat
  • Frozen 
  • Other  
I print it off, highlight what I need and go to the store. I stock up with only the items I need for the week. It takes less than ten minutes to prepare a grocery list this way and all the items are wholesome.

Index
Each and every page contains a simple 3 - 6 step set of directions and between six and nine easy variations to the one recipe. These variations make having variety easy to accomplish.
