Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup
Julie LOVES to make a healthy and cheap version of cream of chicken soup using just dry beans and chicken bouillon, it’s amazing!  See how she includes it in this delicious enchilada pie recipe.

Basic White Sauce
Jodi’s kids love macaroni and cheese of any variety.  She’s moved from Kraft Dinner, to butter/flour/milk white sauce, and now makes a great HEALTHIER bean flour white sauce .

Bean Flour Gravy (or stew)
Julie makes a mean (and low-fat) beef gravy using bean flour, and also uses a similar method as the base of her beef stew.  If you want all the flavor without all the fat, check it out.

Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies
This gluten-free, vegan treat is wonderful because although it is healthy, it is also delicious!  Julie’s favorite part is that she always has these ingredients on hand too, so it’s easy to whip up a batch.

View Recipe

Rice Flour Crepes
Crepes are a family favorite recipe in Jodi’s home.  She decided to be adventurous and try them with rice flour instead of wheat.  They turned out great and can be great for people with gluten intolerance.

Ezekiel Bread
Ezekiel bread was a challenge Julie took on after a reader sent her a recipe for it.  She researched it and found it to be a very interesting nutritional bread.  She tried it out and it tasted good too!

View Recipe

Multi-Grain Pancakes
Jodi and Julie’s cousin sent them this multi-grain pancake recipe after she made it and her kids raved about how good it was.  Wheat grinders make it so easy to  cook with multi-grain flours.

Buttermilk Cornbread
If you have ever had cornbread made from a box, believe me, you will never have it again once you’ve tasted this buttermilk cornbread made from fresh ground popcorn.  It’s divine.

View Recipe

IHOP Corn Cakes
IHOP has some wonderful varieties of pancakes, but some of them don’t stay forever.  When the corn cakes stopped being sold, Jodi knew she had to find a way to make them at home!

View Recipe



Cream Cheese and Jam Cookies
It’s no secret that Jodi likes treats and Julie is the healthy one.  But these cookies are “healthy” because they use a whole grain flour instead of white flour but taste just like regular cookies!

View Recipe

Whole Grain Banana Muffins
Julie tried this recipe her friend sent her and was thrilled with the results. These yummy things don’t have any oil, or white sugar, or white flour in them.  She loves healthy food storage cooking!

Our Favorite Bread Recipe
After trying many many MANY bread recipes, we finally found the perfect one for us.  It uses simple ingredients and turns out wonderful every time.  This will be the last bread recipe you’ll ever try.

Homemade Pizza
We always like to claim that in an emergency if we could just make PIZZA, we could get through anything.  Well who knew that we would end up just loving to make it all the time since it’s so delicious!

View Recipe

Lasagna Noodles
Julie wanted to try this spinach lasagna recipe from Grandma Lori but she added a twist by using whole wheat flour as well.  No fancy pasta maker needed to create  fresh homemade noodles.

View Recipe

Homemade Tortillas
Julie makes some awesome homemade tortillas.  You can roll them out by hand (not so pretty) or use a tortilla press (beautiful round tortillas).  Her recipe is simple and oh so delicious.

View Recipe

Delicious Cakes
One Thanksgiving we did a cake experiment to see if our family could tell the difference between a regular cake and a “food storage” cake.   View the results of the experiment and the recipe.

Homemade Whole Wheat “Rhodes” Rolls
Julie shares her secrets to making delicious homemade rolls that you can freeze and just pop out later for a quick and healthy dinner roll.  These are better than Rhodes rolls and 100% whole wheat!

    I have never heard of making bean flour. What do you use it for?

    • We use it as a thickener in soups, or to make a homemade cream of chicken or cream of mushroom. It’s way healthier and low fat and high fiber. Love it so much!

      • Charisse Tryon Merrill

        Good to know! I’ve been trying to sneek beans more into our diet, this is a great idea.

    What an amazing give-away. I just want to thank you both for all you’ve done for me and my family. Several years ago now the Lord kept telling me to “feed your family”. I had never heard of food storage or how to even begin. Your website was the first one that I visited and I followed your instructions to a tee! I’ve been going fast and furiously ever since. I’ve learned to pressure can, dehydrate, and I’ve learned all sorts of tricks and yummy storage recipes. I owe it all to you two and I’ll be checking your site out for the rest of my life! Carry on and know that you’re doing good works to save lives – or just make our lives easier and more interesting 🙂 Much love coming to you from Florida!!!

  • Kasey

    Always wanted one, but haven’t been able to afford it. Would love to experiment with these wonderful recipes…yum!

  • Melanie

    I have a very old one that we just inherited from my husband’s parents, but I would totally love a non electric one so if the power goes out, I can still make flour. I’m trying to stay getting everything I need for a food storage but when it comes to the big things it’s hard to get those because of the expense. Hoping that I get picked! It’d be nice to win something for a change. 🙂

  • Debbie

    I only have a hand mill. Love it but would sure like an electric on.
