Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas (Using a tortilla press and cooker)

Cooking From Scratch, Recipes, Wheat, Wheat Recipes
I've been making homemade whole wheat tortillas for awhile now by hand. A friend of mine called me a couple weeks ago and said she wanted to make a lot of them for lunches and snacks and wanted to know some of my tricks for making and storing them in bulk. When she asked me this, I had to confess I only really make them for this one recipe because rolling them out is actually kind of annoying. It's totally doable, and I did a post about it awhile back, but making them by hand takes enough time that I shy away from it. Well then, we were asked to come to a food storage fair where we needed to bring samples for 150+ people. The recipe we made called…

20/20 WonderMill Promotion and Giveaway

Giveaways, Grain Mills
If you have been following our blog for long, you will know that we LOVE our WonderMills. They really changed our whole perspective on long term food storage.

ALL NEW Wonder Junior Deluxe

Grain Mills, Grains, Wheat
If you have followed our blog for any amount of time you will know about our love of the WonderMill. We were quite scared of the whole "cooking with wheat" concept until we actually saw a friend of ours grind flour and she told us "You know how to bake with flour right? Well, THIS is flour." Our food storage lives changed forever. The Electric WonderMill is great for quick, everyday usage grinding big batches of grains and legumes. It totally gets you into the habit of cooking with your food storage. However, the Wonder Junior Deluxe is also a wonderful preparedness tool since it can be used in a powerless emergency, and has the bonus value of being able to grind things that an electric mill CAN'T grind. On…

The "Food Storage" Diet

Grains, Healthy Food Storage, Jodi's Progress, Recipes, Recommended Products
My baby will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. Wow does time fly. As any mom knows, losing the baby weight can be quite a torturous process. I knew I didn't want to go on some sort of crazy fad diet to lose the weight, so I decided to go with just eating healthy and exercising. That means lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean meat (i.e. chicken). Basically no processed foods, very little fat, and no refined sugar ... if you know my love of treats this basically equals NO FUN! ;) But he was worth it! And the best part is I am using TONS of food storage while I'm at it. While this "diet" is very healthy, it can also be a bit of a pain…

Setting up Grandma Lori’s WonderMill Wheat Grinder

Extreme Food Storage Makeover, Grains, Long Term Food Storage, Wheat
When we started the Extreme Food Storage Makeover for Grandma Lori early this year, we knew exactly what we were going to do.....NOT! Well, we knew how we were going to do her ePrep stuff, and we knew how to tackle the 3 month supply. We were secretly a little concerned about how we would go about her Long Term Food Storage. If you're new to this project, visit our Grandma Lori Makeover Page for the full scoop, and see the journey as it has progressed so far. Anyways, we were worried Grandma Lori might not be into baking bread, and grinding wheat the way we have come to love. What we saw happen though, was so exciting. As we used our food storage more, she got curious. She was…

Grandma Lori’s Exciting New Purchase!

Extreme Food Storage Makeover, Long Term Food Storage
We're SO excited to get started on the next phase of the Extreme Makeover Food Storage Edition with Grandma Lori. The first few steps of getting an Emergency Plan, and Three Month Supply weren't too hard, but we were worried this part would be a "harder sell" since Grandma Lori's original plan was to just store freeze-dried meals and call it good. However, as Grandma Lori has seen us use our "Long Term" Food Storage more and more lately, her interest has perked. She didn't have a wheat grinder yet so the concept of using all that long term food storage was a bit daunting and not too exciting. Well the good news is: Grandma Lori got one at this great sale priceand we're so excited to hit the road…
