Chemistry of Cooking
"Linda wrote this super-ninja- cool Food Storage Cook Book... called Seven Years of Plenty, (The Best of the World's Basics.) Inspired by the limitless variety found in international cooking. Seven Years of Plenty brings together some of the best recipes made with commonly stored ingredients!! This is such a great book!

"The cookbook is, in our opinion one of the best on the market...The recipes utilize these staple foods and other fresh foods and spices, as well as plenty of "in a pinch" recipes that use only the basics."

Who doesn't want recipes that are easy and you already HAVE the ingredients for? Nice! I have really enjoyed this book and its yummy recipes. And the fact that they're from all over the world? It honestly doesn't get better than that. Thank you, thank you Linda! Now when does the 2nd edition come out? (;

This is a great cookbook. As other reviews have said, most of the recipies use ingredients I already have. We have enjoyed several of the recipes already. I especially appriciate the recipes that are Gluten Free---since creating a wheat/gluten free food storage plan can be challenging. It is great to have some easy and yummy ways to use gluten free ingredients. Thanks Linda!

This cookbook has a lot of interesting recipes that I haven't seen anywhere else. There are a lot of useful ways to use the dry ingredients that you have around, like wheat, beans, lentils, oats, etc.

Seven Years of Plenty is self-reliance revelation!! This book is a must have in your food storage right next to your wheat and water. I love how it offers a fun new twist to food storage, bringing new and simple recipes from far off countries right into my own kitchen... and most recipes call for very few ingredients! With this book, you'll be introduced to a variety of options you never thought possible with food storage.

On a recent trip to Montana we talked to Lori, a clerk at Hampton Inn in Bozemen. She listened to Glen Beck and had started a food storage program, but had no idea how to prepare quality meals. We set her a copy of Linda's book. After a couple of weeks she sent s a thank you note for our kindness. She loved the book.
