Food Storage and Fondant

Baking Ingredients, General, Julie's Progress, Sugar Recipes
Ok so this is TOTALLY stretching it - but when a sister gets married you have no time for coming up with new posts - so you'll have to use your imagination. IMAGINE - you have to make a wedding cake and you only have food storage items as ingredients - well YOU CAN! Last summer I forced myself to try fondant icing after wasting hours upon hours watching the cake decorating shows thinking it looked so totally cool. Well it turns out I found this great recipe with really great instructions and it uses SHELF STABLE (that's how I am making this post relevant) ingredients. The only 3 ingredients are marshmallows, powdered sugar, and shortening. So I tried a little for fun cake and then my sister got engaged…

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…

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…

What do you do on a Sunday night when you don't want to go to the store but you want a delicious treat? This happened to me last Sunday and guess what I did? I made a food storage dessert! YAY!!! This one has been a staple in my family for years and it is one of my favorite treats. But it only just dawned on me that it was a perfect food storage recipe. It qualifies as a comfort food in my opinion because if I was eating purely food storage and I could eat this treat every now and then I'd be in heaven. So here it is, recipe courtesy of Grandma Lori: Best Rice Krispie Squares Recipe Ingredients: 1/2 c. white sugar 1 c. corn syrup (karo…
