Which Powerless Laundry System is Best?

Experiment

  I've wanted to decide on a powerless laundry option ever since I lived on our stored water for a few days.  But I didn't want to invest in something, put in in my closet and then just pray and hope it would work when the time came.  I wanted to make sure that whatever I invested in didn't waste water, didn't take an enormous amount of time and most important: got my clothes as clean as possible. I decided to try an experiment.  I bought / made a few various different options for Continue Reading …

How to Make a Food Storage Smoothie

Smoothie

              Smoothies can be a tasty, healthy treat.  And you can top them with a bit of granola for an additional boost. This basic food storage smoothie recipe can be modified to fit your tastes and create smoothies of your own creation.  But the best part about this smoothie is that since it uses freeze dried fruit (or veggies)  which are just as healthy as fresh, you can make it anytime, even if your favorite produce is not in Continue Reading …

Making General Conference with Kids Meaningful

Favorite General Conference Activity

General Conference With Kids: LDS General Conference is such a wonderful time, but general conference with kids can be a challenge: especially when they are young.  I want my children there so they can feel the spirit that comes with this amazing meeting, but if they are loud and rowdy, it can be difficult for the adults in the room to focus and learn.  I want General Conference to be meaningful and memorable for our entire family.  I want my kids to be engaged, not just quiet. Over the Continue Reading …

Check Your Smoke Alarms – A 10 Min Prep Project

Check Smoke Alarm

You know smoke alarms are there to save your life, right?  So......if it doesn't have batteries or isn't working (or isn't even there!), then it is a bit pointless to have one at all.

It is also a Continue Reading …

Homemade Tortillas

26

Homemade Tortillas Tortillas are something I couldn't live without. We eat them almost daily around our house.  I've wanted to make homemade tortillas for a long time. We eat them so often that making them homemade would save money. Plus it is healthier. And if I can make my own, then I can have them anytime even if I can't get to the store for some reason. I've tried to make homemade tortillas many times, but to be honest, I've struggled. Every recipe I've found is essentially the same: Continue Reading …

Mouthwatering Food Storage Omelet

Plated Omelet

I know (from personal experience) that very few of you will actually believe me when I tell you this is the perfect omelet.  "How is that possible, when it is made from powdered eggs?"   you will ask yourself, just like I did for years.  I was scared of powdered eggs.  Eventually I tried them in baking (and loved them), but in an omelet?  No way!  But I'm here to tell you that this omelet is truly mouthwatering. And an omelet is truly the perfect breakfast: protein, dairy, veggies.  Add Continue Reading …
