This article is in collaboration with Simplified Pantry.

The Review Crew has had a blast using and reviewing three of Mystie Winckler’s Simplified Pantry eBooks. Crew members have been able to utilize the recipes, master pantry lists, and other kitchen tips and tricks in her two cookbooks, Simplified Dinners  and Simplified Dinners, Gluten Free / Dairy Free.  We have also been learning about creating an electronic organization system for our homes with help from her book Paperless Home Organization.


Mystie has written her cookbooks out of years of collecting, revamping, and tweaking recipes to create recipes which take advantage of money saving tips and a well-stocked pantry.  Her gluten-free / dairy free version began with her own quest to preserve her child’s health when a corn allergy developed.  Her desire is to consolidate the steps we go through to plan meals and make it a more efficient and streamlined process. Both cookbooks are available as E-books (.pdf) for $12.99.

Recipes included in both Simplified Dinners  and Simplified Dinners, Gluten Free / Dairy Free are:

  • Slow-Cooker Roasts
  • Slow-Cooker, No-Defrost Chicken Pieces
  • Chicken-in-a-Pot
  • Skillet Cutlets with Pan Sauces
  • Marinades for Grilling or Broiling
  • Foil-Packet Fish
  • Stovetop Pasta
  • Bean Pots
  • Fajitas
  • Quesadillas
  • Taco Bar
  • Burritos or Enchiladas
  • Taquitos
  • Frittata
  • Oven Omelet
  • Pizza
  • Simple Stir-fry
  • Potato Hash
  • Baked Potato Bar
  • Bean Soups
  • Stews
  • Blended Vegetable Soups
  • Quick Soups
  • Main Dish Salads
  • Vegetable Side Dishes
  • Side-Dish Salads
  • Starchy Side Dishes

These are, in most cases, just general categories of recipes. Many, many recipes and variations of recipes are found in each section.  On top of these, the gluten free / dairy free version contains an additional section of gluten free / dairy free desserts. Samples of both cookbooks including the introduction pages, the master pantry list, and all of the recipe variations for one of the sixteen meal types are available on the Simplified Dinners page and the Simplified Dinners Gluten Free / Dairy Free page.

Paperless Home Organization is a unique e-book which walks you through the basics of using different computer programs and cell phone / tablet applications to consolidate home organization and eliminate the mountains of paper that we accumulate.  Mystie does a thorough job of taking readers through the step-by-step processes involved in setting up these different programs and learning how to scan and store items such as receipts and other documents.  It is available in both .pdf and kindle formats for $3.99.
