Never again will I buy these delectable treats!  Seriously.  These were *easy* to make, a little time consuming when it came to filling them, but the process itself was not complicated at all.  And the best part… they were fantastic even using 100% food storage ingredients!  They’re definitely going to be added to my plan now.  Also, this was my first try ever making them ( just so you know I’m not pulling any punches when I say they were easy) and they turned out fabulous!   So, in case you need another reason to go out and buy yourself a pasta machine, this is another really good one.  Why buy pot sticker or won ton wrappers from the store when you can make them yourself?  It might even save you from calling for take out!

Today’s recipe is a simple family favorite that easily cooperated for me as a food storage recipe.  I like this spaghetti bake because it’s so easy to throw together and everyone at our house enjoys it!

The great thing about this recipe as a long term food storage meal is how fast and easy it is.  By the time the rice is cooked it’s ready to go!

Funny thing, while preparing this post I was trying to find the blog I found this recipe on once upon a time (without luck) when I came across the exact same sauce recipe on food.com.  Apparently it’s a popular one out there!  As a normal meal (or stored in your 3 month supply) you might choose to make it using frozen chicken and in that case you can check the recipe in the link …either way I think you’ll enjoy this simple meal.

Prep time: 5 minutes Continue reading

I’ve been seriously craving taquitos all week!  And what do you know?  I looked up a recipe and realized that everything I needed to make them was just waiting to be put together from food in my food storage.  While they’re definitely an infrequent indulgence, they were surprisingly easy to make and tasted so SO much better than the frozen variety!

Prep time:  30 minutes

Today’s recipe is another that was inspired by Karen at www.kneadfulthingsnow.com and highly successful at our dinner table.  Enjoy!

Note:  This recipe makes a hearty 8 – 10 servings.  In my food storage plan I plan for leftovers on purpose (to use for lunch the next day) but depending on your family size you might want to cut it in half.

Prep time:  15-20 minutes

Chicken and Veggie Filled Biscuits

If you’re looking for a meal to please the kids (or anyone else for that matter) this is definitely a recipe to try.  It comes from the book “The Everyday Gourmet” and it’s great!  For the biscuit recipe, rather than using a mix, I use the “Backcountry Biscuits” recipe from the same book and it works out perfectly while also helping to rotate some of the long term ingredients I store.

Makes 12 biscuits

Prep time:  30-40 minutes Continue reading

Tex Mex Millet

Millet is a great grain to store!  It can be popped, or as in this recipe, treated like rice and cooked. Gluten free and high in amino acids, it’s has the highest iron content of all grains besides amaranth and quinoa.  It’s very mild and easy to digest and recommended by doctors for people with ulcers or other digestive problems.  Good stuff for sure!

This recipe using millet is one that I’ve made and shared at food storage tasting tables before and has always gotten a lot of praise.  I originally found it posted online, adjusting it a little to be a food storage recipe, and discovered it was a keeper.  Later, I found out that the recipe I’d found had come from the cookbook “Veginomicon“, a popular vegan cookbook I’d recommend checking out.
