New Food Storage Planning Video

In case you haven’t seen this, I knew you’d want to know.  I have a brand new video I’m sharing with the online preparedness community and TODAY it premieres with the Back to Basics Living Summit.

8:00 am CT TODAY thru 5:00 am Friday, September 15th!

It is my passion to teach you how you can become truly prepared with your food storage and in this video I go into more depth than I ever have before on my planning system.  This system includes THREE binders – it is the missing link I personally know I’ll need if the lights go out and I’m left to use all the plans I’ve made!  I know you’ll want to know how this system works!

In addition to my own class, do you mind if I make another suggestion?  Cindy Miller is a preparedness friend I’ve recently gotten to know and her class on the summit is also happening today.  If you’ve been curious about thermal cooking, her class would be something you’d also enjoy!

Watch the Summit for FREE here!

P.S. There have been more than 30 excellent presentations in the Summit so far.  If you’d like a lifetime pass so that you can watch on your own schedule and you can replay whenever you ready to put one of these tutorials into practice, click here to find out more.

Wonder Oven Recipe Ebook

For convenience, I’ve put together an ebook which includes a 6 page explanation on the concept of Wonder Oven cooking (including best practices and tips) and is followed by 28 of my post’s recipe cards.  To save all the skipping around to recipes (one click to get it all in one document) I’ve combined it.

 

 

About the Recipe Cards:

The recipe cards are sized as either a 4 x 6 card or a full (8 x 11) page and were created to fit the organizing system I use for food storage meal planning.

The idea is of creating a “family food storage cookbook” by collecting and saving the recipes which you’ve tested out, know they work and know you want to store for.  Every recipe you see here on myfoodstoragecookbook.com is one I have tested and has worked for my family and has a place in “my” food storage cookbook.  I’ve planned for quite a lot of variety, but you don’t have to.  It’s completely up to you.

The organizing system (intended to be used once I’m in the midst of long term dependence on my stores) is a way to have a daily meal plan “ready to go” while still allowing for flexibility.  It allows for circumstance changes while still creating a daily variety. Example: if I’m without power and discover that solar cooking won’t work one day, I can easily “swap”and use a Wonder Oven recipe while keeping my inventory steady.

Wonder Oven cooking is a crucial part of my own preparedness cooking plan and these recipes are why!

Adding a Wonder Oven to your Supplies: 4 ways

My Food Storage Cookbook is proud to offer 4 new options to acquire a Wonder Oven!

Through the years while offering patterns and promotions, I’ve sent out hundreds of patterns to those wanting to make them, while hearing from others wanting to know where to get one ready-made.  I’m now bringing you 4 options to get one for yourself!

Four Ways to Get Yourself a Wonder Oven

The biggest hurdle for the DIY’er has been finding the right sized beads to purchase.  I’ve blogged at length about the need for tiny (bebe) sized beads for best heat retention and most of the time those beads are hard to find.  For those who want to do it themselves, I’ve made arrangements with a supplier I trust to bring the beads directly to you!

For groups or even a few friends who want to get together for an order, there’s the appeal of saving money by buying in bulk and doing some of the work yourself.  At the same time, for those who just want to buy one already done, I’ve made arrangements through a friend of mine to offer completely finished sets as well.

I’m excited to bring these options to you!  For more specific information on each product and to order, just visit my shop.  All DIY options are built around the amount of beads (cartons) my supplier offers.  One carton is equal to 37 gallons of beads and each Wonder Oven set requires 10 gallons of beads. I’ve translated these quantities to the tables below in relation to this project.

Also, shipping (to all US locations, including Alaska) is included in all of the options you see here.  Shipping costs to Canada, while I’m happy to offer it, has a slight increase in shipping costs for the beads in Canadian currency.  I can still make it work, but please contact me directly by emailing me at myfoodstoragecookbook@hotmail.com.
