Food Storage Friday: Easy Fluffy Whole Wheat Bread

by heather
I have tried more whole wheat bread recipes than I can count. This one is hands down the best. It uses only whole wheat flour (no refined white), it's faster and easier to make than most wheat bread recipes, and the bread comes out perfect and fluffy. It also slices easily for sandwiches. There are two basics kinds of wheat, red and white. (White is the variety that is generally available at Costco in 45 lb buckets.) Nutritionally there isn't much difference, but grinding white whole wheat produces Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Wheatberry, Apple, and Cashew Salad with Orange Mustard Dressing

by heather
I adapted this recipe from one I found on I Dare You To Eat It. It made a great cold salad to go with our roasted broccoli and garlic potatoes, but it seems pretty versatile, I'm sure that you can serve it with a variety of meals. Wheatberries are a fast and easy way to add protein and fiber to your meal. If you've never made them before, you can find crockpot instructions here. (Don't worry they're super easy.) It will make 12 cups of wheatberries, which you can bag and freeze for when you are ready Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Grad School Goodwich

by heather
Awhile ago, my friend Lisa at Idareyoutoeatit.com, posted a recipe for a New York Goodwich wrap. It looks fantastic, but every time I look at it, I think 'But there are so many ingredients, and so much preparation.' I'm a working mom in grad school. These days if a recipe isn't done in the crock pot or in less than 30 minutes, I don't have time for it. I'm sure that my readers can relate. Now I'm certain Lisa's version is delicious, but mine is faster and also delicious. Kudos to her for thinking Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Peach Pancakes

by heather
I found this recipe on Thug Kitchen. I love his recipes, his emphasis on healthy clean vegan eating and his stick-it-to-the-man attitude, however I will warn you that his language is somewhat offensive but I can't help but laugh at his posts. I made these pancakes for dinner this past Wednesday, and my entire family loved them. Hooray for breakfast for dinner! I was surprised that they didn't taste as peachy as I was expecting, but they were still delicious. Peach Pancakes Food Storage Ingredients: 2 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Fiesta Revisited

by heather
Last weekend we were invited to a party that was cancelled for rain. But I had already bought everything to make Wheatberry salsa, which while delicious is too much for my husband and I to eat while it's fresh. We decided to invite over our friends who previously spent a year as vegetarians, so they're very open to meals that don't involve meat. :) In addition to snacking on salsa, our meal included: Cafe Rio Style Black Beans Sweet Pepper Rice Wheatberry Tacos and because we got a whole Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Taco Pizza & Pizza Dough

by heather
Taco Pizza & Pizza Dough Using Food Storage Some food storage moms do their best to prepare meals, treats and snacks using nothing but their stockpile. If you’re one of these moms, then you know that an efficient stockpile is filled with canned and jarred foods. Savvy preppers also know to add spices, oils, flour, wheat, yeast, salt, freeze dried foods, etc… As long as the product has a long shelf life and tastes good enough for your picky kids to eat, you’ll add it to your food storage Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Apple Buttermilk Muffins

by heather
I recently had an excess of milk that was about to expire and tried these muffins. My family loved them, particularly the littlest one. She ate four of them in the space of a few hours. Thing 2 complained about the nuts, so for the second batch I made half of them without. (And if you're thinking I used my oven in St George in July, you would be mistaken. That's crazy. I use my sun oven whenever possible.) I got this recipe from Food Storage for the Clueless (with my own minor adjustments included). Buttermilk Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: My Best Wheat Pancakes

by heather
I've made many a batch of pancakes from scratch, and after much trial and error, I think I got it right. They're easy, they use food storage and my family devours them. The fact that all of my kids were excited to eat them is a pretty big deal at my house. Buttermilk Wheat Pancakes Food Storage Ingredients: 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 cup all purpose white flour 1/4 cup sugar 1 tsp baking soda 1 heaping tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 cup applesauce Fresh Ingredients: 1 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Quick Whole Wheat Bread-I

by heather
Lately I felt inclined to experiment with bread making, but I didn't want to make 3 (+) loaves. I can fit two, max in my sun oven and baking in my kitchen at this time of year is some what foolish. I found this recipe for quick whole wheat bread in How to Cook Everything: Vegetarianand thought it was worth a try (my variation below). I love that is was delicious, quick and healthy, but it really didn't turn out very pretty. I'll continue to experiment with this. Also if you want a lighter texture, Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Wheatberry, Black Bean and Mango Salad

by heather
Awhile ago I blogged about a  Black Bean, Quinoa and Mango Salad, and my hypothesis was that wheatberries would work well in place of the quinoa. This is just an update to verify that they do work well. Although you have double the dressing, because the wheatberries absorb so much of it. But it's still a cheap, easy, healthy and delicious vegan meal. Quinoa runs about $4/lb, whereas hard wheat or at least the last time I bought any is about 25 cents/lb. Quinoa is nice because it's gluten-free and Read more [...]
