Food Storage Friday: Tortellini Soup and Breadsticks

by heather
Early this week on a cold and windy day (57 degrees is cold for St George) a friend posted a soup recipe on Facebook. I saw it and said 'That is what I am making for dinner tonight'. (Thank you, Shannon!) Since becoming a vegetarian I don't use my slow-cooker nearly as often. This needs to change. So here we are,  tortellini crock-pot soup and quick bread sticks. Super easy, relatively healthy, tastes good, uses food storage. That's how I like to roll. Tortellini Slow-cooker Soup Food Storage Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Whole Wheat German Pancakes with Strawberries

by heather
Just a reminder that using your food storage does not have to be weird. It is even possible to get your family to eat it, and like it.

Whole Wheat German Pancakes with Strawberries Food Storage Ingredients 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1/3 cup white sugar 1/4 tsp salt 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Fresh Ingredients 3 eggs 1/4 cup butter 1 1/2 cups milk 2 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Low-fat Oatmeal Scotchies

by heather
These cookies did not turn out to be everything I hoped they would be. They are pretty healthy and my husband likes them, so that counts for something right?   I was experimenting with white bean puree instead of butter, but I didn't get the soft chewy texture I was hoping for. Still good, just not the magical cookie I was imagining. I suppose magical cookies generally aren't healthy :(  I may be experimenting with this recipe again. Low-fat Oatmeal Scotchies Food Storage Ingredients: 1/2 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Crepes with Nutella

by heather
When I was in high school and I wanted to persuade my brother to do anything, I would make promises of banana crepes. (e.g. If you help me clean the house I will make you banana crepes.) The crepes that I made back then were not as healthy as these ones are and they didn't use as much food storage, but I promise that this version is equally delicious. (I tried them three times in past week just to be sure.) The original version also included a cinnamon butter syrup with sauteed bananas that was tasty, Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Orange Blueberry Bread

by heather
I found this recipe on A Bountiful Kitchen when looking for a good blueberry muffin recipe. I tried a few and this was my favorite. It is a little time consuming to do on a regular basis, read: this recipe creates a whole lot of dirty dishes but they do make delicious muffins. Or bread. After the first time I just started pouring the batter into bread pans because it was easier and it worked. And of course I made several changes, like using more food storage ingredients, because that's how I roll. Read more [...]

Food Storage as a Financial Investment

by heather
Recently I was reading in Food Storage for Clueless about the idea of food storage as an investment. I just loved the way that the authors, Clark & Kathryn Kidd, explained it and thought that it was an idea that was worth sharing. And just for the record, this is not just an investment plan for only those who are in love with food storage like myself and the Kidds. Investment guru, Andrew Tobias is quoted as saying "People who don't have time or interest to learn about investing can often make Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Sloppy Joes

by heather
There are a few variations on this recipe that involve food storage. You can mix up sloppy joe sauce from a dry mix packet with tomato paste and add half  cooked ground beef and half cooked wheat berries. If you are feeling ambitious you can make up your own sauce. My personal favorite is to mix a can of Manwich with some cooked wheat berries and slap it on a bun. Tada! Balanced vegetarian meal in under ten minutes. However you decide to do it, the point is putting cooked wheat berries in sloppy Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Easy Vegan Tacos

by heather
Over the past few months I've been watching lots of documentaries on Netflix while folding the laundry. I tend to pick shows that relate to food, healthcare or history. And from my watching I've become far more conscious about what I purchase. I've decided that maybe organic really does matter (although sometimes it is impossible to find certain organic items, the organic selection is limited in the desert). I've decided that a plant-based diet is really the way to go. When I don't eat meat I feel Read more [...]
