When I make cornbread, I always make extra and then I’ll make cornbread croutons for this particular salad. It’s a nice twist on the same old boring side dishes and it’s got a little bit of a spicy, sassy kick to the flavor as well. The recipe is even better when I’m able to quickly make it from my freeze-dried produce. I also like how it uses herbs and spices that I can have on hand in my indoor herb garden or freeze-dried. This recipe does taste better with fresh ingredients, but I've used...

Frequently I’ve written on this blog as to how simple it is to make delightful dairy indulgences such as yogurt, sour cream, buttermilk, ice cream, cream cheese and other cheeses. So today I’ve decided to share with you just one of the many scrumptious dishes you can make—preferably from whole milk. After trying this yourself you might catch the same bug that pesters me—the one which entices me to move to big, green pastures where I can drink all of the raw milk I want, enjoy fresh eggs, and...

You know. One of the most consistent battles we have to fight in our pursuit of self-reliance is misinformation. There’s always plenty to mislead us, cause us unnecessary heartburn, or make us worry.

It’s one of my most important strategies in my preparedness efforts because it impacts so many of the Principles of Preparedness.  But...

We’ve received a LOT of new readers lately and as such I’m hearing a lot of questions that are also covered in articles in the past. So today I thought I’d help someone find an article on the use and selection of powdered milk that I swore I had written at one time. But I gotta tell ya, I’m not all that impressed with the search features of Wordpress. I figure if I can’t even find the dern-blasted article, then how can I expect anyone else to. So, I’m going to provide some basic powdered milk...

When it comes to making your own cheese from powdered milk, I decided to start off easy today and address cottage cheese making specifically. Perhaps you’re thinking that cottage cheese is simply a luxury that you’ll do without in a survival scenario. Ok. That’s fine if you’d prefer not to indulge in it. But I use it strategically in my home. Cottage Cheese in Recipes Using cottage cheese in dishes makes the dishes taste as if they are full of fat and thus very satisfying—without any of the “...

    Well, at least those of us who are addicted to cheese anyway. Can you name at least 10 different kinds of cheese that you love? Do you believe that cheese should be its own food group? Are you helpless to abide by your diet unless it involves huge amounts of melted cheese? Then this article is for you!   So picture this.  It’s a bona fide emergency survival situation.  You are holed up on your home and living off of the emergency preparedness supplies you stored.  And you’ve got...
