I love making muffins on a cold morning. These warm up my kitchen and little tummies nicely. But getting out of bed extra early to prep them when my bed is so warm is not easy. I make them the night before instead. I follow all directions, pour the batter in the paper liners and everything. BUT I DO NOT BAKE! Instead I cover my metal baking pan with press and seal wrap and place it in the freezer. In the morning I pull out the muffins and set them on top of my oven while I preheat it. Then I bake! They taste fresh and warm. Occasionally a recipe needs an extra 2 minutes or so, but just test for doneness before removing from the oven. Continue reading
Chewy and sweet and easy to assemble. They are great for long trips or short car rides. I make up 2 or 3 batches at a time. I like to wrap them individually to make them more portable, but honestly about 1/2 of a batch is usually gobbled up too fast to wrap. Continue reading

This recipe is one of our Sunday favorites! The cranberry gives just a hint of sweet to the roast and makes a delicious gravy for mashed potatoes. I usually make it with a regular roast, but have adapted it here for use with canned beef.

These began in my kitchen one day when I realized my mornings were too crazy. I decided to plan ahead and made up several jars of pre-measured ingredients for our morning oatmeal. Then in the morning I just bring my water to a boil and pour in the rest! It makes breakfast so easy I can do it with a baby in my arms, and one hanging hungrily on each leg too!
Weeks later I discovered that if I made pretty layers in my jars, they make a great gift for a new mommy or someone not feeling well. I used to just take dinner to families in need. Now I can add breakfast! Continue reading
To add some variety to my storage, I like to have some meals that are served “cold.” This original creation whips up in minutes and has a delightful, fresh taste that’s a contrast to the usual hot meals we associate with food storage. The curry adds a nice flavor, and I love the sweet from the mandarins and craisins. –Mellyn
This casserole is simple, yet it tastes like you spent all day preparing your best Thanksgiving feast. It can be made with leftovers from that great day or you may easily taste the joys of the season year round, by having canned turkey in your storage to fill the unexpected craving.
This sandwich is made from a simple can of turkey, but coupled with the flavor of the dressing and the berries, it reminds me of wonderful holiday leftovers.
This skillet meal is full of variety in ingredients and taste. Along with the apples and chicken promised by the title, this dish also features mushrooms, cranberries and onion. It is a sweet and salty combo that we enjoy. Continue reading
