Homemade Cool Whip

Print the recipe card!  homemade cool whip

Get a load of this ultra “cool” recipe, my friends!  This whipped topping is 100% fat free (on top of being rid of all the crap-ola found in store bought Cool Whip), made with all shelf stable ingredients and drum roll please… can (under the right weather conditions) be made without electricity!!  Did I mention it’s simple too?  So so simple.  It takes a total of 15 minutes of prep time. Ten of those minutes are spent beating the milk, which I count toward arm toning exercise, so that brings it down to a mere 5 minutes of “cooking” 🙂

My kids love this “Cool Whip” –and I don’t mind them eating it —  so we’re all happy!

Rice Pudding

My kids really love this rice pudding.  It’s made for dessert one night, eaten for breakfast the next day (if they can get away with it), and goes into their lunch bags as a treat for lunch.  It’s easy to make in the wonder oven, includes simple ingredients and even though the recipe doesn’t call for eggs (which is good for my food storage plan) it’s still thick and creamy.  Yum!

Biscotti Cookies

This recipe comes from Pam Emick’s “Bread in a Bag – Book Two”.  For those who are new to the blog I had a chance to try out a recipe  from her first book and share it with everyone back in November over in this post.  In this latest book, you’ll find even more bread recipes bagged “pantry style” for convenience, but this time in addition to breads she’s also included a variety of muffin, wheat-free breads, sourdough, cracker and cookie recipes.  I love finding a book like this that’s figured everything out for me and made it easy to understand with step by step pictures.

So I was excited to try the biscotti cookie recipe she had in this latest book and wanted to see if it would also work in my sun oven.  They turned out just great!  Pam was kind enough to agree to let me post the recipe for you to try out too!  You’re going to love them!

Raspberry Squares

Everyone loves these!

I like using my tart pan to make these in for how easy it is to remove them after baking and also because it will then also work in my sun oven to bake if wanted.  If you don’t have a tart pan you can line a pan with foil (in both directions) and after it’s baked just lift out the entire block to place on a cutting board to cut.

It’s November,  let’s kick it off with pie!  You’ll love this pumpkin pie with chocolate crust and to top it off a 100% shelf stable coconut whipped cream!  It’s true!  Made from canned coconut milk,  it’s a trick that was discovered by accident and (gratefully) shared on this blog with all the rest of us.  Sure enough it works, and is out of this world delicious!

Dulce de Leche Brownies

A friend shared these brownies with me — they were so good that I asked for the recipe.  I changed it up to include whole egg powder rather than fresh eggs and now it’s something I can use in my long term plan anytime I have leftover canned butter!  Can you imagine how amazing it would be to serve these brownies if you only had your food storage to eat?!
