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...

You can all rest easy now folks; powdered cream cheese does exist and as it turns out, it's yummy. The other week I tried a little experiment. (see the YouTube video) I got my hands on some freeze-dried powdered cream cheese. To test it out I decided to try and make one of the most “cream-cheese dependent” recipes that  I could think of. Cheesecake. I’ve got a hankering for dairy. While I don’t believe in preparing for the world to end, I do feel that it might as well be done without my real...

This week: More freeze-dried reviews, a new Cheese Waxing Kit, this months' giveaway item announced, and a valuable resource for FREE medical preparedness books. I don’t know about you but I felt like this weekend flew by. I really enjoyed doing the radio show this past Saturday which was on “Do It Yourself Dental Care.” You can download it so you don't have to miss out on all the information shared. This coming Saturday’s show will be on Hoarding—what it really is, it’s legal definition,...

Over the weekend I received 2 postings on the cheese waxing topic. Both postings were strongly AGAINST someone waxing their own cheese. Unfortunately, I feel that this leads folks astray just as much as telling a person that there is no need to prepare. So I wanted to add some clarification and THEN post the main part of the body of the message these individuals posted. For starters, there are three reasons why I wax cheese. One--because I don't want to be without out it, even in the midst...

“Hello. My name is Kellene and I’ll be volunteering as your victim today.  Please try to keep your assaults isolated to hidden areas as I have an image to uphold.” As I’ve said a hundred times, there are no victims, only volunteers.  When we volunteer to pay 300% more for something than what we could spend if we were more patient or proactive, then I consider that to be a self-inflicted price gouging wound. A real danger comes when we’re faced with the painful reality of such decisions in...

When it comes to making your own cheese from powdered milk, I decided to start off easy today and address cottage cheese making specifically. Perhaps you’re thinking that cottage cheese is simply a luxury that you’ll do without in a survival scenario. Ok. That’s fine if you’d prefer not to indulge in it. But I use it strategically in my home. Cottage Cheese in Recipes Using cottage cheese in dishes makes the dishes taste as if they are full of fat and thus very satisfying—without any of the “...

It’s interesting what a seemingly innocuous sounding sentence can do.  Apparently the phrase “you can wax your own cheese and store it” is a vile enough claim to cause some to turn on their evil buttons. Oh the controversy. But the problem is that the misinformed cheese wax controversy is causing some to not have their favorite food group in stock in the event of an emergency. No cheese? That’s practically against my religion. I’d rather be hung by my toes and pummeled with an organic carrot...

I'm a Daring Cook! My confession is not that I’m a good cook. The confession is that I’m a bit daring in my cooking, in that I’m not afraid to try new things and new recipes. I can usually read through a recipe and determine whether or not it will be good, and even what to add or subtract from it prior to making it. In the past I’ve even ventured to cook things on the fly, even when it was for a large gathering. I started this somewhat dangerous habit on the menu of a girlfriend’s wedding...

    Well, at least those of us who are addicted to cheese anyway. Can you name at least 10 different kinds of cheese that you love? Do you believe that cheese should be its own food group? Are you helpless to abide by your diet unless it involves huge amounts of melted cheese? Then this article is for you!   So picture this.  It’s a bona fide emergency survival situation.  You are holed up on your home and living off of the emergency preparedness supplies you stored.  And you’ve got...
