I would invest in a good cookbook.  The one I have to use is "Dining on a Dime" by Tawra Kellam and Jill Cooper.  It is a cookbook full of recipes that use just the basic ingredients.  I search for recipes that I need on the internet but if we loose power there will be no internet to search therefore that is the reason for a good cookbook on hand.

 Also, if anybody does any garage sales, keep your eye old for old cookbooks. I found one from ca 1880 that teaches how to make anything from scratch!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try mormon cookbooks.  Look at www.deseretbook.com and search under food storage.   By the way, I have a recipe for pinto bean fudge if anyone is interested.

Oh, and I do have several preparedness cookbooks but I haven't tried the recipies out. I just like reading them. If you already know how to cook they give you alot of great ideas and assistance. Dehydrated and Freeze Dried foods can be tricky it seems.  Maybe we should start a topic with one food choice, like canned chicken, canned peaches or TVP and we can share recipies like that. just and idea. How 'bout rice, got lots of that! lol :>}

This is a rice recipe for Spanish Rice.  I have not tried it but it sounds easy and good.

1 chicken bullion cube

1/2 cup water

1 cup rice, cooked

1 tablespoon taco seasoning

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 cup tomato sauce

Dissolve bouillon in water.  Mix all the ingredients and bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serves 4

 

I am sure you could modify this recipe to meet your needs if you were limited in items.

The Joy of Cooking, the earlier editions (you will need to find it at a used book store or rummage sale) is an excellent cookbook.  Not only are there typical recipes, there are recipes for wild game, plus how to dress wild game, including squirrel, possum, rabbit, bear, and myriad others.

An excellent book for the prepared.

Some of the old 1950's cookbooks are being replublished. I've seen them EVERYWHERE. Look for the Betty Crocker and Better Homes and Garden ones.

Look at yard sales for cookbooks from the 1930 and 1940s. Those are the BEST.

Be VERY careful of the NEWER Amish and Mennonite cookbooks. They are FULL of specialty items, NOT basics!! Believe me I know. I almost joined an ultra conservative Mennonite church a few years back :-0 In REALITY, their lives are NOT simple. I found out I was too poor to keep up with them :-0 The OLD cookbooks are OK, or newer ones that are a collection of GRANDMA's recipes. The Amish know they have a problem with fancy cooking among the younger set and are starting to preach against it.

Look in the kid's section of your local library. You will find good stuff there.

Also look for ethnic cookbooks from COLD areas that have had to cook from stored foods during the long winters.

I purchased a local mennonite cookbook.  We have mennonites in our area.  The cookbook that they have is with basic items.  A few recipes with items that you may not have but most are with items everyone has in their pantry.

Try "Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking, a Mennonite Community Cookbook" by Mary Emma Showalter ISBN# 0-517-16213-X

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/051716213X/qid=1141301565/s r=11-1/ref=sr_11_1/002-4030097-0437644?n=283155

Favorite Amish Family Recipes By Pathway publishers is also good. The only place I know to purchase it online is at Mark Roth's site. Pathway publishers doesn't even have a phone and prints all their books with a hand powered printing press :-) The cooking instructions in the book are almost nil and expect you to know a bit about cooking.

My pasta recipe may be no good soon :-0

I beat 3 eggs with 1/2 teas salt. I mix in enough flour to make a soft dough. I roll it out with a rolling pin, then cut it into noodles and boil them. No machine. No drying.

3 eggs makes 4 GIANT lasagna noodles that fit in a 9 by 13 pan. They get bigger while boiling.

My "lasagna" is just sauce and bit of crumbled hamburg and a few slices of mozzarella cheese between layers of homemade noodles.

Pioneer, I just use regular all purpose flour. You can use whole wheat too.

I found 2 good new cookbooks!

"Tassajara Cooking" and "Depression Era Recipes". You can read reviews at Amazon.com

Also "Recipes for a Small Planet" has a VERY interesting few pages called "Complementary Camping" that is useful for Bug Out Cooking.

Right now I'm really trying to focus on grain and bean cooking. Tassajara Cooking has some basic outline recipes that you just pick one or more ingredients from several lists. There is "Bean Soups" "Grain Soups" "Potato and Squash Soups" "Cream Soups" "Making a Casserole" etc.

www.honeyvillegrain.com has GREAT prices on powdered eggs compared to anything else I've seen. I'm about to put in an egg order and will feel SO much better now :-) I thought I was going to soon be eggless after seeing the prices of eggs and shipping everywhere else I looked.

Very, Very busy studying cooking this week :-0
