Meatball Soup

Meatball Soup Recipe --    One thing I love about my good friend Shawna is that she has a lot of good recipes that are easy, delicious and can easily be adapted to be made from your preparedness food pantry.  She has shared quite a few with me over the years that I love, so keep an eye out for some more her recipes in the near future.   With Fall quickly approaching (officially September 23rd) I thought I would share one her easy soup recipes with you, which I actually enjoy year-round because...

Heiss Kartoffel Salat (aka Hot German Potato Salad) -- Preparedness Pro   I love trying new recipes, especially ones of International Fare.  Today’s recipe comes to us from across the Atlantic from the beautiful country of Germany.  My dear friend Shawna shared this with me recently and I can tell you, it does not disappoint.    Shawna’s mother-in-law was born in Germany and often makes German dishes for special occasions, which she always enjoys.  She has also visited Germany on numerous...

Most of us have enjoyed a good dump cake at one time or another. For those of you who might not recall eating such a concoction, let me remind you. A dump cake typically consists of  pie filling being thrown into a baking dish, topped with the contents of a cake mix, and then further topped by butter.  For several years when I would teach my UNDERwhelmed in Food Storage class, the dump cake would be featured as one of the no-brainer, yet delightful dishes, because, in spite of its simplicity,...

I'm an Ohio gal through and through and one of the places I've always loved visiting when I get home is Skyline Chili where they serve Cincinnatti Style Chili. Just writing this article is suddenly weakening my resolve to try a gluten-free and sugar-free regimen for a while in an effort to see how that plays into one's preparedness efforts. *sigh* Imagine my delight though when I realized I can easily make my own pasta, even while observing gluten-free criteria. Yay! Now, this recipe will...

I should have posted this recipe years ago when I first had a taste of it as made by my dear friend, Chris.  So you have her to thank for being willing to share this recipe. *grin* Enjoy- and yes, I do mean ENJOY!  Not only are these delicious, but because of the REAL food that's used in them, you won't find yourself wolfing down the entire batch because the fiber and other REAL nutrients will satiate your appetite.  Thanks Chris, from me, for being willing to share this recipe!  Luv ya bunches...

Today's recipe comes from the recipe box of my mom.  This was one of her go to dishes when she was participating in a potluck.  It was always a hit and she always went home with an empty dish and requests for the recipe.  This would be an excellent addition to your menu for this weekend with the big game happening.  Another great thing about this recipe is that it has only two ingredients, and yes it can be made from my pantry.   Enjoy!   Chili Cheese Dip 2 cans of your favorite chili with...

Brrr it is cold outside and when the weather is like this there is nothing more warming from the top of your head to the tip of your toes than a pot of hot, steaming delicious soup. It just hits the spot.  So, today I am double dog daring you to make this soup and not drool over it!  Make sure you have some crusty French bread to serve with it.  And YES it can most certainly be made with shelf-stable foods including powdered sour cream, cream cheese, powdered whipping cream (that you can get...

During the World Wars, finding creative ways to “do without” or to use “essentials”  in lieu of preferred ingredients was a way of life. Potatoes were abundant as was oatmeal. As a result, many of the recipes during that time of history make use of these types of essentials in recipes that we normally wouldn’t expect. Potatoes and oatmeal were also used in an effort to “bulk up” their recipes to be more satisfying and to squeeze in more calories and vitamins.   Recently I’ve been playing with...

I frequently hear how people plan on "hunting" for their food in a crisis or they are stocking up on the fruits of their present hunting endeavors but seem to be finding it difficult to make creative dishes. So I thought I'd provide one of my go-to methods for cooking elk or venison. I  will also add that this recipe is surprisingly good over salmon cakes. (I know! Who knew that salmon and cranberries got along so well?!)  I adapted this recipe from one I found in an old cookbook of a famous...
