Saving time and money at the grocery store is simple. With this innovative book of food and nonfood mixes (from egg pasta to laundry detergent), Charlette Carollo shows shoppers how to get more by buying less. Using basic ingredients, anyone can transform ordinary kitchen components into brand-name quality items at a fraction of the regular cost. This handy guidebook enables readers to eliminate additives and preservatives in meals, reduce the waste of packaged materials, and, in the case of the nonfood items, limit the amounts of harsh chemicals in cleaning agents and personal hygiene products.
Perfect for people with food allergies or restrictive diets, these recipes consist of essentials such as seasoning mixes, butters, cheeses, and breads. Entrée, dessert, and snack recipes offer countless opportunities for special occasions and family meals. An assortment of practical household necessity mixes includes pet supplies, cleaning products, and toiletries. A food storage guide and disaster organization tips round out this indispensable resource.
