Thanksgiving “Recipes”

Published on November 22, 2010 By The Success Fisherman

Technically, these aren’t really “recipes,” per se.  And one of them doesn’t even include true “food storage” ingredients…unless you consider M & M’s food storage (which I do. They store for years in the freezer). I do however think you may enjoy these fun Thanksgiving ideas, so I wanted to share them. Try making “Blessing […]

I think we’ve established my love for pumpkin. (Such a big part of why Fall is so fabulous.)  So, I feel the time has come to share my favorite Pumpkin Bread recipe, and probably my favorite way to cycle the canned pumpkin in my food storage.

It’s the Great Pumpkin (Recipes), Charlie Brown!

Published on October 31, 2010 By The Success Fisherman

As a big pumpkin fan, I felt very blessed during the pumpkin shortage earlier this year to have cans of Libby’s pumpkin lined up in rows on my shelves. I had purchased them on sale last November. It was a lesson on how preparedness can help us to enjoy simple comforts, as well as sustain us in difficult times. Canned […]

Homemade Cherry Syrup

Published on October 26, 2010 By The Success Fisherman

I am picking up 2 cases of peaches and a case of apples tomorrow from my local produce co-op with plans for canning and drying this weekend.  If I run out of steam before the fruit is canned, I may freeze some for smoothies too!  So, it was necessary to reclaim some freezer space.  I […]

Peach Strawberry Freezer Jam

Published on October 26, 2010 By The Success Fisherman

Photo from Taste of Home Fresh peaches are my favorite fruit. So, after I’ve eaten my fill of the harvest, I like to find some way of preserving that fresh, fruity flavor for the rest of the year.  I think adding homemade items to my food storage is a treat, and I don’t want canning […]

Wonderful Wheat Waffles

Published on October 26, 2010 By The Success Fisherman

I generally prefer waffles to pancakes, so I’ve been auditioning recipes to find a good, fluffy whole wheat one.  I think I’ve finally found a winner. This recipe from www.countrylivinggrainmills.com turns out lightweight, but crisp on the outside. My children cleaned their plates this morning without detecting the whole wheat. (I left a bag of Krusteaz […]
