Stone Soup Cookbook

I have been subscribing to Jules Clancy's Blog...Stone Soup.  She subscribes to minimalist cooking at home.  That means 5 ingredients in 10 minutes.  The idea appeals to me because of the simple and healthy meals I can put on the table. 

The philosophy of how this kind of cooking can help us is (of course) simple:

1. less time in the kitchen
10 minutes cooking leaves more time for the activities and people you love.
2. less time shopping
With only 5 ingredients in each recipe, you’ll find your shopping lists are shorter and more manageable. You won’t need to spend as much time out hunting and gathering.
3. eating more fresh, healthy food
Everyone knows that home cooked food tends to be better for you. With the focus on fresh ingredients, my 5 ingredients recipes make it easy.
4. more pleasure & enjoyment
Cooking can be a great way to relax and unwind. Spending 10 minutes using one of my minimalist recipes will help you gain more pleasure and enjoyment from dinner time.
5. save money
If dinner only takes 10 minutes to prepare, you’ll be more likely to cook for yourself than take the expensive dial-a-dinner option.
6. less stress
Long ingredient lists and complicated methods can lead to much stress and kitchen confusion. Minimalist home cooking keeps things as simple and stress-free as possible.
7. more kitchen confidence
If you’re new to cooking, starting with minimalist recipes will help you get some great simple dishes under your belt and give you the confidence to tackle anything.

Visit her site and take a look at what she serves up.  You can download a 97 page cookbook just to try. Here is the link for the Stone Soup Cookbook...

I recommend you save this  to a file and not print it.  Don't forget, it is 97 pages.  Enjoy.
