Deals to Meals gets a makeover!

Recommended Products, Three Month Supply
If you've followed our blog for a long time, you may remember when we first introduced you to a service called Deals to Meals. We have used and recommended it as a way to stock up on groceries (specifically three month supply items) at discounted prices without having to clip coupons. We totally LOVE it! I've been enjoying it even more as I've been making a big effort to eat healthier and found it a struggle to stay within my grocery budget with my new eating plan. Well, Deals to Meals recently re-launched their blog (we are suckers for blog makeovers and theirs doesn't disappoint). And they are also going to be having a series of guest bloggers begin to contribute on the blog. Keep an eye out on the…

Our Favorite Bread Recipe in the WonderMix Mixer

Recommended Products
We've posted before about the BEST whole wheat bread recipe. Yes we said BEST! We both make it quite frequently, sometimes doing a half batch, sometimes doing a full one. In the world of kitchen mixers people have normally had two options, a KitchenAid or a Bosch. Well we just recently got a new WonderMix Kitchen Mixer (produced by the makes of the WonderMill) to try out so of course I knew the real test would be in its ability to make our favorite recipe. It is too large to fit in a KitchenAid so we've always preferred to make it in a Bosch. Check out my video below to see how well it did in the WonderMix!

Is Food Storage on Your Mind This Christmas?

Is Food Storage on Your Mind This Christmas?

Recommended Products
This is the time of year where our readers, our families, and our friends all ask us for advice because they want to "get some food storage" for Christmas.  We love the idea of spending Christmas budgets on something useful that is a great long-term investment.  However, that's sort of a hard question to answer with a one-size-fits all solution. A common theme we tend to see is that a lot of people who want to "get prepared" don’t want to learn a whole new system of cooking, worry about rotating, changing their family's eating habits, etc.  Their strategy is more of a "get it and forget about it" mentality.  If this is your style, or you are buying gifts for someone who tends to think like that, the best…

Fortress Clothing: Lifetime supply of warmth

Recommended Products
We recently had the opportunity to meet Dale from Fortress Clothing at a preparedness expo here in Utah. We knew that his products served a huge need we had been looking to fill, so when he offered to come show them to us so we could try them in action (in the freezing cold) we knew we needed to jump at the chance. We tried on the entire bug out bag set and went out by the lake with a bitter wind. We were thoroughly impressed and are looking forward to adding these items into our "heat storage" preparedness plans. Please remember that while something like this can be critical and life-saving in cold weather, it may not be one of the first items to get as part of your…

NEW PRODUCT: NutriMill Plus

Grain Mills
When we first started our first storage adventures we actually didn't even know what wheat kernels looked like. The whole idea of storing wheat, grinding it, and cooking it without electricity seemed so foreign and daunting to us that we didn't even try to tackle it for almost a year. One day I was visiting a friend and she had a wheat grinder on her counter and I started asking her all about it. She showed me how it worked and sent me home with a little baggie of flour and a bread recipe. All of a sudden I realized that wheat was flour, and I knew how to cook with flour! I borrowed her wheat grinder every few weeks until I could afford my own and when we finally…
