Bulk Food Storage Group Order

One of the questions I get asked most often is where the best place is to buy bulk food storage. Most of you know that I am a big advocate for buying Thrive Life freeze-dried foods. They are great for stocking up on fruits, veggies, meats, and cheese … but they don’t sell any of the “basics” that are a major component of any traditional emergency food storage plan. So I have been working with Walton Feed (also known as Rainy Day Foods) to help you guys have access to some of these items at a discount. Walton Feed is one of the most well-known providers of beans, grains, honey, and other preparedness and food supplies so I’m excited to introduce this bulk order offer to you!

One of the best ways to purchase anything is to use the power of a … Read More

Freeze-Dried Fruit Crisp

Did you know that January is National Oatmeal Month? I didn’t either until I started seeing social media posts about it! I was doing a cooking demo featuring some of the sale items over at Thrive Life this month and I cooked up the most delicious Fruit Crisp and got so many requests for the recipe that I knew I had to post it here for you. Since it has a thick “crisp” layer with loads of oats in it I figured it would fit in perfectly with national oatmeal month too!

Simple Lemon Yogurt Cake (Dairy Free!)

I first made a version of this lemon yogurt cake by Ina Garten over 10 years ago and STILL remember it. It’s seriously that good! I’ve been craving this cake lately, but because I’ve been dairy-free while breastfeeding, I’ve had to do a little adapting to the recipe. With a few ingredient swaps, I think I came up with something pretty awesome! Perhaps even better than the original.

Whether you need to eat dairy free or not, give this version a try My husband couldn’t believe how good it turned out with my substitutions. It was spongy, moist, with a good crust and a slight tang–everything a lemon cake is supposed to be.

Now that it’s springtime and getting closer to those hotter summer months, a lemon cake is the perfect recipe to enjoy outside on a beautiful day. It’s great served with coffee for a patio brunch or after an al fresco dinner party. This cake just calls for fresh air and sunny weather! And if you’re still waiting on warm wea… Read More
