I just wanted to give a quick shout out to the people behind the logos you see supporting this contest. I’m of course not getting paid for doing this, but just within the last few days I’ve again been in contact with some of them and I’d just like to say what great people we have here behind these logos!
You see all kinds of names represented here, some bigger businesses and some small, but what they have in common is they’ve each donated from their bottom lines thanks to their sincere appreciation for preparedness and simply wanting to help people out.
I couldn’t do this without them and I do hope, when the time comes, that you’ll give these folks a few minutes of your time and support their online shops. You’d be supporting a group of genuinely good individuals and businesses of which I hope keep doing what they’re doing. We need them!
Here’s where you can visit them!

What a week! On the one side we’ve had a group of die hard participants ready to climb a proverbial Mt. Everest cooking with food storage and on the other, because of my own overzealousness (who me?) I think I’ve overwhelmed many of you by the way things have been presented. More about that, including some minor rule adjustments I’ve made to make things more fun for everyone here in the post. First though, let’s see what our weekly winner did this this past week!
Nearly doubling her already high score of 47 points from last week, Paula Herron scored an amazing 86 points this week with 12 recipe submissions! Continue reading
Participants were busy this week, each having increased in points earned from their previous week and going up against new participants who’ve joined in!
Our top finisher set an impressive first week’s earnings making breakfasts, dinners, bread and desserts! Besides the number of recipes she made — eight in all — in nearly everyone she utilized non-electric options, boosting her recipes with additional bonus points and ending with a total of 47 points this week! Continue reading
Wow, thanks for all of your great entries this week!! In case you didn’t catch my little tribute to you yesterday on facebook, I’ll say it again briefly: I was impressed. It takes planning and (most importantly) *time* to test out a recipe made from food storage (not to mention non-electric cooking options) and this week there was truly “no fear” from those who jumped in — even in the first week! Great job to all of you!! Your points have been counted and even if you didn’t win this week’s weekly prize you’ve got a score going. Continue reading
I’m SO excited to announce to you that from Febrary 5th until April 30th I’m hosting a fantastic contest I’m calling “The Biggest Prepper Challenge”!! I definitely want YOU to be a part of it! All the details on how to play and the prizes you can earn are contained in this post, so read carefully before you start.
By participating, you’re sure to gain invaluable skills and information for yourself in building your own family’s food storage meal plan while ALSO winning some of my favorite things to help you in expanding that preparedness.
Due to a host of extremely generous vendors, this challenge — and the chance to win some of the best tools and food storage supplies on the market — you have a great opportunity here to create a base of recipes for your own family’s plan while earning prizes. Your success is completely up to you and the work you’re willing to put into it. This is NOT a random selection win giveaway or a joint blog collaboration. It’s exclusive to My Food Storage Cookbook and will be judged entirely by me, your author.
Due to current shipping prices (which are expected to be rising in the near future), this challenge is open only to those living in the US lower 48. I’m sorry if this excludes anyone, I’d really love to offer it to the whole wide world, but it’s the best I could do to be able to offer an amazing contest to the greatest number of people.
So go ahead and watch the video below as I explain my personal “what’s, why’s & how’s” of doing this, read the details here in the post and get ready to join in! I’m sure in the end I’ve probably missed answering some question you might have, so if I did (or if you’re just totally excited and want to tell me about it) leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to get your questions answered.
Who knows, YOU could be our Biggest Food Storage Prepper!!
Today I’m so excited to get to introduce you to my friend, Maria, originally from the country of Honduras, who agreed to share with us some of the cooking skills she was taught growing up! These things, while simple, are skills most of us here in the states have never been taught. In trying to feed our families — and especially in arming ourselves with the preparedness skills that can make the most of little resources, these are especially valuable skills to have. I know I’ve learned a lot from her already! Continue reading
