FOOD REVIEW: Egg White Powder

Powdered Eggs Recipes
At the start of this year I started the Insanity diet/exercise program. If you have seen or heard of this you will indeed know that I am INSANE. It is tough stuff. But I finally decided that since my "baby" was turning one I might actually REALLY have to lost the last of my baby weight. Sigh. Well one of the easiest meals on this diet plan involves eating a mixture of eggs and egg whites. I like eating this, I eat it every day. I don't like throwing away egg yolks every day because I have no use for THAT MANY egg yolks. Not to mention I hate having to go to Costco every three days to buy more eggs. One day as I was washing 3 egg yolks…

Food Storage Recipes: Corndog Muffins

Corn, Cornmeal Recipes, Jodi's Progress, Powdered Eggs Recipes, Recipes, Sugar Recipes, Wheat Recipes
So here is my confession. I really wanted to learn how to make homemade corndogs as a follow up on Thursday's cornmeal post. (Yes you really CAN use corn/cornmeal in a LOT of different foods!) However, I got a little intimidated by the whole deep frying thing and I chickened out. But as I was looking at the corndog recipes I discovered that you can make corndog muffins and just bake them in the oven! So we had these for dinner and they were actually super easy and delicious! Corndog Muffin Recipe: Ingredients: 1 1/2 c. cornmeal (about 1 c. fresh ground popcorn) 2 1/2 c. flour (about 2 c. fresh ground wheat) 1/2 c. white sugar 1/4 c. brown sugar 4 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. salt 2 eggs…

Baking Ingredients, Comfort Food Ideas, Powdered Eggs Recipes, Recipes, Sugar Recipes
Ever since I was a little girl my mom would make me these bars on or around my birthday. I LOVE them. They don't even really have a name other then my "Birthday Bars". They are kind of like a lemon bar but the filling is made with brown sugar instead of lemon, like a sugar pie type filling! YUM! Since it's not my birthday, I don't have a batch to take a picture of but I'll update the blog with one soon! Just imagine this lemon bar picture with a brown sugar filling instead! Julie's Birthday Bars Recipe Crust- 1 c butter (can use 1 cup butter powder and 1/4 cup water instead) ½ c powdered sugar ½ tsp salt 2 c flour Filling Sugar- 2 eggs (can use…

All About Powdered Eggs

Baking Ingredients, Long Term Food Storage, Powdered Eggs Recipes
Have you ever tried using Powdered Eggs in your recipes? Well we have and we were surprised! They actually taste good.  Our favorite thing about powdered eggs is to ALWAYS have eggs on hand.  No more running over to your neighbors house in a panic when you're half way through a recipe and realize you are all out of eggs. What are Powdered Eggs: Powdered eggs are eggs that have been dehydrated and made into a simple powder, with a texture similar to that of powdered milk. While some brands of powdered eggs utilize the whole egg, others will only include the yolks or the whites, and may add other ingredients to enhance the flavor or the texture of the reconstituted eggs. Generally, it is possible to purchase powdered eggs…

Food Storage Recipes: Rice Pudding

Comfort Food Ideas, Jodi's Progress, Powdered Eggs Recipes, Rice Recipes
Rice pudding is a comfort food I remember from my childhood. Now that I have tried other rice pudding recipes I have come to realize that no rice pudding is the same (or as good) as my mom's rice pudding. The recipe isn't hugely complex, but it's the one I like. If you don't have your own favorite yet, give this one a try, it's definitely a great food storage recipe! Rice Pudding Recipe Ingredients: 2 eggs, beaten (can use powdered eggs) ½ c. sugar ¼ tsp. salt 2 c. milk (can use powdered milk) 1 ¼ c. cooked white rice, cooled (leftovers work great) ½ c. raisins (optional but oh so delicious!)

Food Storage Recipes: Blender Wheat Pancakes

Powdered Eggs Recipes, Wheat, Wheat Recipes
When Julie and I first started our food storage adventures we thought that buying a wheat grinder was very scary and expensive. I started out by grinding a bit of wheat using my friend's WonderMill. But I really wanted to find other ways to use my wheat that didn't involve grinding. So when I first saw Crystal's amazing and gorgeous 4th of July pancakes made with wheat in a blender I was so excited to try it out. These Blender Wheat Pancakes are still a staple meal in my home even though I do in fact have a wheat grinder now. My kids LOVE it when I make pancakes ... especially for dinner! The other night we were having so much fun I snapped a few pics for you to…

Jodi found this cornbread recipe and tried it for Sunday dinner and loved it so much we decided to post it for you so you can start to get excited about your grains too!
