shall we cook?

28 Feb

Life is finally back to normal again!  Yay for that!  I’ve got some great recipes to post this week but before I do I just wanted to ask you food storage minds out there for your feedback.  Our family is expecting a new addition in a few months (it’s a girl and we’re so excited!!), so with that in mind I’m anxious to get as many recipes as I can up the next two months before I have to slow things down in preparation for our new baby.

So…what type of recipes are you most interested in seeing?  Quick fix pantry meals — meals using grains — homemade pastas — wonder oven ideas — gluten free — snacks & breakfasts — international styled varieties ??  What kinds of recipes do you wish you had more of in your food storage arsenal?

Leave me a comment and let me know!

Oh and thanks to all of you who left comments and sent emails wishing me well while I was away…you’re great!  I’m officially afraid of my knives now, which is probably a good thing 😉

    Glad to see you all mended (knife-phobia not withstanding) and back online. Congrats on the impending new arrival!

    Quick fix pantry meals are always a hit here at our house, so we are always up for trying new recipes for added variety.

    But it would also be interesting to see pantry-packaged snacks, deserts and breads from a MYO mix (that doesn’t require refrigeration like conventional White Mix)… things that you just need to add water or oil. There are so many shelf-stable dry ingredients these days (instant milk, powdered eggs, shortening & butter powder) that I’m continually frustrated finding “storage” recipes that call for fresh. I usually find that you either need more or less water in a pre-measured mix than if you reconstituted a batch and then measured out just the amount you need for that recipe. And then what do you do with the rest??

      Good ideas — did you get to see the post about Pam Emick’s book ‘Bread in a Bag’? She builds a lot onto that idea of MYO mixes for breads and actually just finished a second book that I’ll be posting about in the next couple weeks with all kinds of muffin mixes. I know what you mean about “storage” recipes calling for fresh and the frustration there, I totally agree. We can do better!

    I was just thinking about you today and wondering what the next post would be!
    My vote: SNACKS. Kid-friendly and husband/friendly (which may be the same thing!)

      Thanks Chelsea! Yes, kid friendly definitely = husband friendly, the only difference is the husband usually wants Nutella with whatever it is 🙂

    I am so happy you are back!! I have missed your posts!! I love all you do but I too would love to have more wonder box recipes. I have finally made edible bread in my thermal cooker (like the wonder box but smaller). I want to use mine at least once a week to get used to it. I also really like all of your sun oven recipes. They are just pure genius (pizza!!) Congrats on the baby too! That is so exciting!

      Thanks Julene. You should post about you thermal cooker — I’d be interested to see more about it! What are it’s advantages besides being smaller/ taking up less space than a wonder box?

    I’m so glad you are doing better, Megan, everyone missed you I’m sure!

    Well of course I’d love to see you show off one of my breads again… 🙂 Don’t forget to check out my second book! 🙂
