Have you ever wondered how many tomatoes to buy when fixing tacos for guests? Have you ever discarded produce or meat because it went bad before you could use it? Most of us probably have experienced this on more than one occasion, including this Author. With the ever-rising cost of food, saving money at the supermarket is something most of us would welcome. The store's scale can be a cost-reducing tool as it takes the guesswork out of buying produce. Recipe books and websites list ingredients but often the end result is too little or too much food. This is because recipes often don't take into account meat shrinkage or produce waste. Also, if the number of servings is provided, we usually don't know how much a serving amount is. For instance, many chili recipes are based on a 1 cup serving size. While this might be enough for some, 1 cup of chili is probably not even going to fill a typical bowl half full. The solution . . . this book. This book is not a cookbook, rather it's a simple guide as to how much to buy to prepare 60 common foods for 4-50 servings. The following page titled "How to Use This Book" will help you navigate through the book. Whether you're a new cook or have 40 years of cooking under your belt, as this author does, this book will help guide you the next time you wonder, how much food do I need to buy?

About the Author:

Judy Gillis grew up in Kansas City, Missouri working in the family grocery store then later worked as a Registered Nurse. Her mother, Julia, a hotel Banquet Captain, taught her daughter how to cook at a young age. But buying the right amount of food didn't always come so easy. Often, Judy would even overhear family and friends comment that they weren't sure how much to buy. When Judy retired from her job to help care for her 94 year old mother with Alzheimer's, she decided to put pen to paper and finally address the question from family and friends, "how much do I need to buy" Judy lives in Pleasant Hill, Missouri.
