X – Recipes

This section is for recipes that you have TRIED and they are wonderful. Please post only recipes that the ingredients would be available during a disaster such as using your food storage. Please don’t post recipes which have ingredients that you would have to run to the store for. We want tried and true recipes using food storage. I know there are some yummy recipes out there!!! Start posting!!!



  1. Cowboy Cookies

    Mix together:

    3/4 cup brown sugar
    3/4 cup white sugar
    1 cup oil
    4 Tbsp. Dehydrated Whole Eggs
    1/4 cup water
    1 tsp. vanilla

    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup quick oats
    1/2 cup nuts (an kind you like)
    1/2 cup chocolate chips
    1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries

    Bake in hot oven at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. If you cook too long they will be crunchy. Let cool and store in an airtight container or ziplock bag. These cookies keep well and make a great, nutritious addition to packed lunches.

  2. Hoe Cake

    Note: When the pioneers were heading west, a lot of them used this simple recipe at the end of a long day. They would find a flat rock, clean it off and place it in the fire. When the rock was really hot, they would drag it to the edge of the fire and cook “Hoe Cake” on it. Hoe Cake is a flat bread. When the Hoe Cake was half done they would flip it with their hoe and cook the other side. Thus the name Hoe Cake.

    This recipe will make one 6″-8″ flat bread.

    1 cup all purpose flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    2 Tbsp Dehydrated Milk
    1 Tbsp oil

    Mix flour, salt, baking powder, milk and oil until blended. Mix enough water to form a thick batter. Beat the batter briskly for 30 strokes to blend ingredients. Scrape batter into a ball and flour. Place ball of dough into hot, oiled skillet, I use a cast iron skillet. Cook on Medkum (4) heat until hoe cake can be flipped. If the bread starts to break up when you place your spatula under it then it is not ready to be flipped. When ready flip the hoe cake over and cook the other side. This bread is absolutely wonderful with home made jam and butter.
    This is so easy to make over a campfire. Take all of the ingredients already mixed in a plastic bag and mix right in the bag. YUM!!

  3. I just noticed something I left out. When you place the ball of dough in the skillet, flatten it out to the edge of the skillet. You want it a little thicker around the edges because when it starts to rise it won’t be even across. Also, if it’s way thicker In the middle than the edges. the center won’t cook and you will have a doughy center.

  4. A friend of mine just came over with the best cake she had made. It is so simple it’s almost silly.

    Her Recipe:
    One box of spice cake mix
    2/3 can of pumpkin (the smaller can)

    Bake per cake mix time. No butter. No oil. No eggs. Those are the only two ingredients!!

    So, now I am going to try a devil’s food cake mix + 2/3 can of pumpkin + nuts because I think it will taste like very moist brownies. I’ll let you know the outcome!!

    OR make it with the devils food cake and put a home made no bake cheese cake on top!!! Oh yum!!!
