"What's for dinner, Mom?" Ever hear that question in your house? Sometimes the cupboard's bare and time is severely limited. It's hard to answer that dinnertime question. Ever been there? I know I have. Even one of these situations-hungry kids, empty shelves, or no time-can add up to another quick call to the pizza delivery guy. And if you add tight finances into the equation, it's pretty much impossible to order fast food, or even run out to the store for last-minute ingredients to prepare some new recipe from your favorite magazine or website. When the troops are clamoring for something more nourishing than dry ramen noodles straight from the package, wouldn't it be great to transform that lonely can of stewed tomatoes, a stray packet of chicken soup mix, a few partially emptied pasta boxes, and some frozen mixed vegetables into something tasty for the family? Well, welcome to the world of Mix-n-Match Recipes. No more last minute trips to the store. No more panic about what to eat when you run out of money before you run out of month. As long as you can unearth a few dusty cans on a shelf somewhere, there's a good chance a Mix-n-Match meal awaits. These recipe ideas cover the entire gamut of eating ... soups, appetizers, desserts, main meals, snacks. If you can name it, you can probably Mix-n-Match it! Do you remember that old children's story, Stone Soup? Everyone came along and threw a little of this and a little of that into the pot with the stone, and before their eyes, the first unofficial Mix and Match soup was born! Save time, save money, and save your sanity! Here's what readers have to say about Mix-n-Match Recipes "Your kitchen recipe solution to the mealtime dilemma! This cookbook may be thin but it's packed with recipe solutions. One of our favorite meals is the mix and match skillet recipe. A definite buy!" "Mix-n-Match is a tiny treasure of a cookbook that will get you in and out of the kitchen in a hurry. The recipe for the Mix and Match Fruit Crisp is worth the price of the book. I love this recipe, especially served with ice cream." "A 'must-have' for all home cooks, especially new ones! I'm adding this book to my list of gifts to give at Bridal Showers. Thanks to this book, I'll never buy those convenient pre-packaged boxed dinners for tuna or hamburger again!" "Learn to cook this way. No experience needed! What a neat way to teach someone to cook. No complicated recipes to follow. No strange techniques to learn. I would think this is a good way to learn to make quick meals in an easy way. No strange ingredients you never heard of. Eat without going shopping, use only what you have in the house." -- Linda H "Quick and delicious! I've tried almost all the recipes in this short and sweet recipe book. I highly recommend the Mix and Match soup, especially when the fall weather hits. Simple, succinct and to the point, love it for every day cooking." - Lori
