Salmon Cakes with Dilly Lemon Rice

30 Aug FS -- Salmon Cakes 035

Print the recipe page!  salmon cakes with dilly lemon rice

This is our family favorite recipe for salmon cakes that I turned shelf stable by using a cooked flour and water mixture in place of the eggs that the original recipe calls for.  The flour combination surprised me but it really worked well and my kids didn’t even notice the difference!  The Dilly Lemon Rice is a recipe of Anitra Kerr’s shared here with permission.  Finished off with lemon herb mayonnaise served on the side, this meal is a refreshing change from the usual.

Homemade Cheese Ravioli

I think you’ll be surprised how easy and fun this dish is to make!  I’m super excited that this time around I finally found an easy and tasty way to make the cheese using all long term ingredients  —  I think you’re going to love it!   I found the idea for it at www.tacticalintelligence.com and then I played around with it and made up a variation that tastes equal to anything I could have put together using fresh ingredients.  The homemade egg noodle recipe is used with permission from the book “The Everyday Gourmet” by Shari Haag.  Another fun thing that I get to share here is my new ravioli rolling pin that makes the process of pressing out the ravioli an absolute cinch!!

You’re going to love being able to make homemade cheese ravioli for your family entirely from long term foods in your food storage!

I’m loving anything mexican this week and this dish is as good as it gets!  Seeing this recipe at www.kneadfulthingsnow.com gave me hope that this white enchilada favorite our family has loved for so long could be made over into a great 100% food storage meal!  If you’ve never had this before I can almost guarantee you’ll love it.  I’ve changed up some things since the last time I made it as a long term meal.  In my search for the perfect 100% white flour tortilla, I tried a new tortilla recipe that I found over at Allrecipes.  I’m excited to report that I honestly think it’s the best one I’ve made yet– these tortillas are even better than the ones you buy at the store– not oily,  just soft and delicious!  Secondly, instead of using freeze dried cheese I tried a canned Kraft variety that can be shredded and then I just added it into the sauce.  It turned out wonderful — I hope you enjoy it too!

I’m thrilled to get to introduce you to two more of my favorite recipe resources today with this recipe.  “Multi-Grain Spanish Rice” is the creation of grain guru Chef Brad from his book “Those Wonderful Grains II”.  I love this rice and grain combination in particular– we’ve served this to dinner guests and everyone’s loved it.   Next, the recipe for homemade tortillas comes from one of the best food storage cookbooks on the planet “The Everyday Gourmet” by Shari Haag.  I love her recipe for homemade tortillas featured here because they’re not oily at all.  They crisp nicely when cooked and can even be made into quick tortilla chips if desired!

Hummus and Crackers snack pack

15 Aug

Just a little something I thought I’d throw out to you all.  I came across these Hummus and Crackers snack packs at Costco today for $3.97 and thought I’d give them a try.  There are 7 packs in each box, each one yielding a small portioned snack that includes crackers and a spoon and a 2.5 oz. can of hummus.  My review? I like that they have a year’s shelf life and the hummus was good but the portion size was too small.  I think these little packs would be better as “a snack” if paired with something else.  Maybe alongside some sprouts and some homemade flat bread?  Mmmm…now that sounds good!
