For Christmas this year, Mystie gave me a copy of her E-book, Simplified Dinners. She had told me about it before, but I didn't really get it. When I actually got to look at it, though, I was astounded.
I am usually a pattern thinker, but when it comes to cooking, I have always had a big disconnect, and because of that, I've always been very recipe-dependent. I have never really noticed the similarities between one dish and another. I've never grouped dishes by types or been able to improvise much. I don't know why, but that is the way it has always been for me.
Mystie completely demystifies the dinner process by grouping meal prep into basic steps that are repeated for four, five, even eight different dishes. She is the first person to have taught me that certain types of meals have almost everything in common but the spices. It has been such a blessing to me, and I say that as someone who already had a process that was working. As one of her ads says, it really is "dinner uncomplicated."
Here's the Official Description:
Simplified Dinners enables you to transition toward home-prepared, real, whole foods cooking—even for those less confident in the kitchen. There are no packets, boxes, or pre-prepared foods on the master pantry list, but from it you can make a wide variety of dinners, breakfasts, lunches, and snacks. It truly is a sufficient list. And it’s basic. You don’t need to shop at fancy grocery boutiques to eat good, natural, normal food. You can make it with the stuff any standard discount grocery store sells. This is real-food cooking for normal people on a budget.In addition to this, her recipes are just plain yummy!
