I'm Starting My Food Storage Blog!

I get asked questions all the time about food storage and preparedness, and now I will finally have a place you can go for the answers!

Resource for You!
I am hoping to make this a great resource for all of you out there who are learning to cook with whole grains and freeze dried and dehydrated products! We have been taught to "Store what we eat, and eat what we store!", and I'm going to show you how! Please leave a comment below and ask me what you want to know!!

Group Food Order at a Discount
I also want to make products and equipment available to you when I find them at a good price. I do run a Group Food Storage order from Walton Feed (in Idaho) twice a year for much of the east coast, and I want to be able to get the word out and get more people understanding the wonderful opportunity this is to access hundreds of items at a good price. This is the cheapest way to get food from them across the country! 

Whole grains, freeze dried fruits and vegetables, powdered and dehydrated products, sprouting seeds and supplies, emergency supplies, wheat grinders and much more are available from Walton Feed. You can order as little or as much as you would like, and food is available in small #2.5 cans, #10 cans, 25-50 pound bags, and 6 gallon buckets. 

I think one of the best resources you can have are tried-and-true, delicious RECIPES! So I will be posting many of my best food storage recipes here for you! I already have a few recipes on a fabulous food blog called Mormon Mavens in the Kitchen. I will have many more coming, and some videos too! My first video will be how to make my AMAZING cinnamon rolls! You are going to love making those for your family and friends!

My Book
I have written a book for beginners (and it's even good for those who might be intermediate or advanced!) called The Hows and Whys of the Year Supply. It gives helpful hints on how to incorporate food storage items into your everyday cooking, shelf life information, how to reconstitute and use food storage items, and lots of delicious recipes your family will love! And the recipes are EASY to do! I am a simple cook, and I don't like spending all day in the kitchen, so it's got to be quick, easy and delicious to qualify as one of my favorite recipes!

If you would like to purchase one of my books, they are $10. You can send me a check or use Paypal. Go to the MY BOOK tab at the top of this webpage and you will see how to order my book.

So now I need to know what questions you have about cooking with food storage, storing it, or whatever it is you want to know. I will start adding content by what you want to know! 

Thanks for all the support and kindness! Hugs! Melissa : )


  1. Hi I'm excited about this! I've seen a couple of your presentations in Columbia South Carolina. Are you going to make a Facebook page as well? I wish you would :-) that way I can keep updated on all of your blog posts!

    1. Thanks Gwendolyn! Yes, I will have my FB page up very soon! Thanks for your kind comment! :) Melissa

    2. Hi Gwendolyn! I did get my Facebook page up! Have you seen it?

  2. I was wondering what the best way to organize is. By item, by expiration date? Or what? Lois
