We Heart Pinterest Day 2: Powerless Cooking


Since we LOVE Food Storage, and LOVE Pinterest (see post here), each day until February 14th, we’ll be showing you some of our favorite Pinterest boards and neat things we have found and have pinned there! It’s so great to see and share what others have done.

Today we are highlighting our Powerless Cooking board. Powerless cooking is one of those things that can be really intimidating for food storage beginners. This board is full of helpful ideas including things that are CHEAP or FREE to help you cook with your food storage in a powerless emergency.

To see the whole board, click here.


  • PIN 1: Build a fire pit! This is a great idea for powerless cooking. You can build this in your backyard and always have it ready for a fun summer activity, or in case of emergency!
  • PIN 2:This is a way to share our powerless cooking class with friends. The first video in a series of videos on fuel and various cooking tools. Some you can even make yourself.
  • PIN 3:Something often forgotten in planning for powerless cooking is pots and pans. We think this could be an interesting thing to learn more about.
  • PIN 4:Who wants to haul out their powerless cooking gear mid winter! This is an awesome option!

Make sure you check out the rest of the items on the Powerless Cooking board. We’ll keep adding to that board as we find great stuff, and we’ll see you tomorrow to highlight another one of our boards!
