Mason jar cookbook provides recipes with convenience

This cookbook, is a well organized collection of inventive recipes. The premise is that fixing meals (in a mason jar) ahead of time lets the person on the go simply grab a meal and microwave it for a delicious, healthy, portion steady meal. It’s also a great option for a family with picky eaters or members who have particular food sensitivities. Something special for the person not eating the “regular” meal will be in the fridge. Since many of the recipes are in a single –portion size (even soups and stews) people living alone might find this book interesting since they will not have to go through the math calculations of downsizing recipes to achieve single portions.
