Food Storage Friday: Pesto Gnocchi Soup

by heather
Last week when I started browsing through Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week, this was the recipe that I was most excited about trying. Thing 1 looked at the picture in the book and said "Mom, it looks like there are giant bugs in that soup. Gross" How is it that I have been her mother for this long and she has never tried gnocchi? Those are not bugs, those are the best kind of pasta you can get sans cheese! When I lived in Argentina, this pasta Read more [...]

by heather
I found this recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance : Over 150 Delicious, Cheap, Animal-Free Recipes That Rock The filling could be used in a wrap also. I realize that the picture looks kind of meh, but trust me, it's delicious. Quinoa, Mushroom and Black Bean Stuffed Peppers Food Storage Ingredients: 1 (15 oz) can black beans 2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce 1 cup vegetable broth 1/2 cup dry quinoa 1 teaspoon salt 1 Tablespoon chile powder 1 teaspoon maple syrup 2 Tablespoons olive oil Fresh 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: Where to Start

by heather
This week with the government shutdown, I was reminded of how great food storage can be. There are people who are going without paychecks, there are moms and children who can't get help from WIC because the offices are closed, and I thought 'Wouldn't it be reassuring to have a little food set aside for unforeseen and uncomfortable circumstances?' I hope that people do, and if they don't I hope they have friends and neighbors to lean on. (Seriously, if you're in the St George area and you need help, Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Cauliflower Pasta and Cheese

by heather
This week while I trying to find one my recipes I discovered that some of the stuff from my old blog never transferred over. Just as well, originally when I posted it in 2009, I neglected to take a picture, and the recipe has evolved over time. So, from my archives: My husband is allergic to almost all raw vegetables and many cooked veggies too. My kids just generally won't eat them. This makes getting my family to eat well-balanced meals a challenge, too say the least. I thought Deceptively 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: Green Curry

by heather
One of the best places to eat in St George is a Thai restaurant run by an adorable older Thai woman named Benja. Last fall for a fun date my husband and I went to one of her cooking classes. I thought 'Ooh I'm going to learn to cook like Benja'. Actually, I learned why I will continue to frequent Benja's because it's worth it to just pay her to make my dinner. The first thing we learned to make were Thai Basil Rolls, which wasn't too complex. The problem is, the best part is the sauce that you dip Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Taco Pizza & Pizza Dough

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: Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

by heather
I recently found this recipe on The Post Punk Kitchen and I am in love. It's easy, delicious and full of veggies. It's satisfying and stores well in the fridge for a few days. PPK uses their own homemade vegan mayo. I tried this and it failed. You can make your own, buy your own, or if you find your local grocery store is like mine and doesn't carry vegan mayo, you can use the stuff with eggs. :) It's still yummy. Chickpea Salad Sandwiches Food Storage Ingredients: 1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, 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 [...]
