Salisbury Steak – The Finest in Pre-Remote Cuisine

My mother, Pauline, was a great cook, so it’s not like we hoped she wouldn’t have time to make us supper, so we’d get to eat TV dinners instead, but when that happened to be the case, it was always a very special, and exciting occasion.

Hello there.

It's almost been a whole year since I lost my dad. As September 4th approaches, I got all the feels. I lost it at the farmers market on Saturday holding a plum because they were his favorite. The day before his health declined to the point of hospice, I mHi.
Hello.
Is this on?

It’s been a LONG time. Long time. Over a year. So, hello.

Oh, what’s happened since I last blogged? Lots and also not much. My beloved father’s health declined due to Parkinson’s and arthritis, then he had a stroke, and in September 2017, he left all that pain and discomfort and went to a place where he could garden, eat cake, and watch baseball.

I’ve been pretty active on Instagram showing lunch with mom, Cidney the Girl Dog, and stuff I’ve been eating.
I want to get back to blogging because I need to keep track of recipes, and remember what … Read More

Brownie Crinkle Cookies (The Boy Who Bakes recipe)

Brownie Crinkle Cookies on a plate
Brownie Crinkle Cookies from The Boy Who Bakes recipe
Do you have one hour? Then you have time to make these cookies! Really, they are super easy and fast. I can wake up super duper early and make them before work (and I leave home at 6 am). Sometimes, I don’t have time to let them cool so I just lug the half-sheet pan into work. My co-workers don’t mind. And I’m sure your friends won’t mind too.

This recipe is from The Boy Who Bakes. I love Edd Kimber, cookbook author and winner of the BBC2’s Great British Bake Off. He has engaging videos and fun content on Instagram. Earlier this year, he brought us heaven…in the form of a brow… Read More

Coronavirus Tips and Tricks from Julie

Hi friends! Julie here! It’s been awhile. As you know a couple of years ago I stepped away from running Food Storage Made Easy with Jodi to have more time with my growing boys and to work on some other projects with my husband’s business. Jodi took over and has been keeping me posted on your preps and I have missed you. Even though I stepped away from the website I never stepped away from preparedness and sure feel grateful about that right now. Here’s a little pic of my family now. My oldest was 18 months old in our first water blog posts and now he’s in middle school!

I asked Jodi how things were going and she’s so busy right now with the website, managing her crazy active preparedness facebook group, getting ENGAGED, and keeping up with her family as a single mom now tryin… Read More
