Emergency Food Storage In A Nutshell has been a huge help to me. I haven't tried all of the recipes but from this book we have so many family favorites that are even birthday requests. The huge variety of recipes are all from stored food and for me that has the meals being very quick and simple to prepare (I am one who loves to cook from scratch and fresh foods and don't blink at spending 1-1 1/2 hrs preparing a meal). On crazy busy days with my six kids, I will turn to this book and have a meal on the table 30min later (or sooner in many cases), start to finish. I love it!
