Recipes that begin in a bag with the dry ingredients and are completed later with the liquid ingredients when ready to be prepared.
Excerpt from the Introduction:
I have developed the recipes in this book because I wanted to control the ingredients in the bag, and at the same time, I wanted a quick alternative to frozen meals.
Instead of cooking meals in advance and freezing, to use at a later date, I choose to prepare the bags in advance, buy the additional ingredients needed to complete and stock my pantry shelf rather than my freezer shelf. I find the food is fresher and easier to prepare. It also tastes better. The bags travel better than frozen foods, when preparing the recipes outside of your kitchen.
Since the bags and additional ingredients do not need refrigeration, it makes them perfect to take on camping trips, on vacation trips, for college dorms, parties, family gatherings, unexpected guests, and gifts. Husbands and older children love the bags when mom has to be away. They can cook and have good meals with the easy to follow instructions. There aren’t a lot of pots and pans to wash either, since most of the recipes can be completed with just one utensil.
