More with Less Cookbook

I love a very simple cookbook that comes from the Mennonite community called More with Less Cookbook.  I highly recommend it for simple recipes–nothing gourmet here, but hey, there’s a need for the basic recipes in life!  The book deals a lot with how we as American’s can consume less.  It’s got quite a bit about that in the beginning, and is fairly convicting.

Recipes we’ve done:
Beef Curry (love this one!)
Pizza Sauce/Dough
Peanut butter popcorn
Creamed Chicken with Corn Bread Dressing
Oatmeal Bread
Quick Chocolate Pudding
Fried Rice
I know we’ve done more but this should give you a sample.  Lots of people on Amazon talk about the simplicity of it, how it was great during tough financial times too.  Master Baking Mix, granola, lots of egg dishes, Chicken pot pie, ginger-glazed carrots, and lots of other things as well!  Each chapter ends with a “Gathering up the fragments” section with ideas on how to use what is leftover (like using bread to make your own croutons or bread crumbs).
I have the spiral bound version, and would highly recommend that over the paperback version.

  1. I was going to check to see if the library had this one. Guess what…that won’t be happening anytime soon.

  2. I used to have this cookbook and although I didn’t use all the recipes, I did enough to learn how to extend a recipe without using so much meat, etc.
