Pressure Cooking Pot Roast


Last Friday I elected to nurture an injury with some real, home cooked food.  I was really craving a pot roast, but didn’t want to put the traditional time and energy into it.  So what did I do?  I talked my assistant through the step-by-step process of making a yummy pot roast in under an hour!  And it was so good, my husband finished it off before I had a chance to have seconds (darn it).

EZ Preparedness Recipes

I thought I’d give you a break today from all of the preparedness “thinking.”  So today I’m simply providing you with two yummy recipes – Spam Friend Rice and Mexi-Cincy Chili – that you can easily make from what’s in your cupboards right now.  Hopefully, knowing that you can make use of what you’ve got on hand (or can at least easily have on hand) will lessen any anxiety you may have in surviving a disruption to your regular way of life.

Why You Should Store Food NOW



There are many who I share my expertise with who inevitably ask me, “Come on, Kellene.  Your practices are good in the event that there’s a cataclysmic event, but what’s to say that all of your food storage won’t just be destroyed with the catastrophe?


And so, in appreciation of those who require me to work harder and speak clearer, I dedicate today’s article.

job-lossFirst of all, it’s a myth for you to believe that your food storage is solely for the purpose of surviving a catastrophic event in nature.

You’ve Got it All—Now How Do You Keep It?





After years of concerted efforts, budgeting, canning, lifting, organizing and educating, you feel reasonably confident that you finally have enough food, water, and other emergency supplies to last you one year.  But here’s the real question.  Now that you have it all, how are you going to ensure that you’ll get to use it when all heck actually does break lose?

A Precarious Position Indeed



I confess that it is doubtful I will make any friends with this particular posting.  It is inconvenient information that I share with you today.  While I happily provide you with a yummy recipe at the end of this blog, one in which you can make from your food storage supplies, I realize that what I am about to share is an unpleasant thought.

Items to Hoard (for now AND in case of an Emergency)


You’ve heard the announcement on the TV of a pending emergency.  What’s your first reaction?  Well, if you’re like 95% of the adult population it’s to go to the store and stock up.  But if you already have key items on hand and know how to discern between that which is needful and that which is foolish, you’ll avoid the chaos that will inevitably be present at any store after such an announcement.

Why You Will LOVE a Pressure Cooker!

A couple years ago I was interviewed by a magazine and asked what was it that I couldn’t live without?  I replied that other than my husband, I couldn’t live without my pressure cooker -- but it was a close tie.  I am so absolutely in love with all of the features of a quality pressure cooker, that I’m out to convert every person who considers themselves a cook, or concerned with emergency preparedness.
