Thick and tangy, this tomato-based beef stew has long been one of our family favorites. We often use potatoes in place of the barley, and our favorite way to serve it is in a bread bowl. It’s perfect for dipping and delicious before trick-or-treating with these parmesan cheese rolls or bowls. –Mellyn
This recipe comes from Trish R. She taught me about many different types of “Food Storage Meals” and this one just shines. Continue reading
Freeze Dried Asparagus. I have tried many ways to hydrate and serve to my family. This recipe is by far the best! Actually, this recipe is good enough to make it to my final 19! Continue reading

A friend gave me this recipe years ago. It’s still our favorite chili — mildly spicy with just a hint of sweet. My husband likes to dress it up with tobasco sauce. –Mellyn Continue reading
I remember my great grandmother making this squash recipe at a large family gathering. I think it was the first time I tasted zucchini and liked it! Since then, I’ve developed quite an appetite for this prolific vegetable, and it’s on our table year round! We don’t use a lot of Velveeta at our house, but it stores reasonably well (for about 6 months at a time) and provides some variety when my kids get tired of the same veggies. –Mellyn Continue reading
A great way to roll all the flavors of the fall season into on little sandwich. Continue reading
I actually keep very little “cream of something” soups in my house, but this recipe has kept me buying at least a few every year. This is Karen’s recipe, of course I made just a few changes, but my food storage efforts haven’t altered the taste.
Thanks Karen for another go to meal! Continue reading
This sauce is jam packed with protein and flavor. The ingredients are so basic that it is easy to always have the things I need on hand to make a quick and delicious meal. Continue reading
Another staple from my one great cook! I personally don’t like clams, but my husband LOVES them. I just discreetly remove a bowl of this for myself out of the family pot BEFORE I add the clams. Then no one is any wiser that my dish is different. I don’t have to eat clams, but I don’t need to make my kids think they shouldn’t either. I like to let them decide on their own! Recipe from Karen.

This is an easy side dish. It does need time to chill, but it is so simple to assemble that if I have the thought of it in the morning, I only need a moment to have it ready and chilling well before dinner time. Recipe from Carol. Continue reading

This is a wonderful soup that is easy and healthy. This version is quick because I used canned black beans. Continue reading
The sweet of the peas is the perfect flavor to enhance the sweet in the salmon in this easy dish. Continue reading
This recipe could be made out of fresh veggies right out of your garden, but they taste just as good from veggies right out of a can. I have made them both ways and they look and taste so close I never hesitate to make the canned version. Continue reading
This is an old time family favorite made simple with the use of freeze-dried meats and veggies. This answers the question: “Honey, what are you going to do with all those #10 cans?”

I love being able to throw this side dish together without any chopping or peeling. Using carrots in this dish adds much needed Vitamin A into our diets and my food storage! Continue reading
There is no Marsala in this recipe, but the flavors are inspired from a sauce that contained Marsala Wine and this is where I got its name. “Chicken and Sauce” was just too boring for me to use. Continue reading
