Is there a simple way of combining several images into one ? I shoot mostly food and  decided to try combining several images into one image.

There are several methods involving different steps.
No simple way. No filters, no easy way out except to learn photodhop or another similar program.

Not sure if there is an easy way to make the edge's look natural at 100% crop. If the backgrounds of the 2 images are the same tone it might be easy. If not, then its a lot of work. Something like replacing a sky is pretty easy. Blending a person or complex object into a new picture can be very time consuming, and takes a lot of patience.

Someone please tell me I missed the boat and there is push botton magic isolation blending software out there?

I forgot to mention that backgrounds are the same.  So is there a simple way?

If the background and light are the same than I would just paint it in. If you don't have to worrry about the edges should be a piece of cake  :)

Have you done this before?

I'm sure others would know much better than myself. But here is how I would do it.

photoshop>open image>open image to be combined>drag new image onto background>create layer mask>invert(ctrl,backspace)>paint away...

Just out of curiousity, how long does it take you to do something like this if you don't mind me asking?
