Super Easy Peach Cobbler

This afternoon my Mother In-Law stopped by our house on her way back from a trip.  She brought us a few peaches from a local farm, Black's Peaches.  My Husband mentioned that he would love to have a cobbler and my answer to that was "I don't know how to make a cobbler".  His Mom gave me this quick recipe and it turned out great!  I never would have guessed that something this good was so easy to make!

Shelf Reliance Peach Cobbler

2 Large Ripe Peaches - Peeled and Sliced
* Reconstituted 

Place a greased 9 x 9 baking dish in the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, baking powder and salt with a whisk.  Once blended mix in sugar and milk.  Pour butter mixture into the bottom of your dish then pour the flour mixture over top.  Place peach slices into the batter and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Don't forget to make a bug out bag for your pets

Disaster kits for pets

Updated: Friday, 06 Jul 2012, 4:26 PM EDT
Published : Friday, 06 Jul 2012, 4:26 PM EDT
What about your four-legged family?  There are numerous websites that provide helpful lists of what should be in your pet’s emergency kit, but as a dog trainer, I would like to discuss some additional considerations in preparing your dog for the emergency as well as some suggestions about the items your choose for your kit. 
Here is what is in my kit, which is assembled in a gym bag and ready to go. 

3 Day Supply of Emergency Pet Food:
Most people think they will just grab some of their pet’s food as they go out the door, but in an emergency situation, will you have time to do that?  Will your food travel well? Grabbing what is left in a 30 pound bag of dog food may not be convenient or practical.  I keep freeze dried beef in my kit.  The brand I use has 5 patties in a bag and weighs under a pound.  This is actually enough to feed my dog for 5 days.  For my cat, I keep freeze dried salmon, which comes in a container that weighs less than 2 ounces and can feed my cat for about three days. 

It’s a good idea to introduce your emergency food to your pet BEFORE an emergency.  I suggest using the freeze dried products every week or so as a treat.  This will alert you to any food allergies and gets your pets accustomed to the food.  Additionally, doing so will enable you to rotate the supply in your disaster kit so that you always have fresh food in the kit.

Zucchini and Bacon Mini Quiches

Let me start off with a warning....these things are super addictive.  If you are planning to make these before you are ready to serve them, be sure to make extra!  I hope that i am not boring everyone with all of these zucchini recipes.  Our garden this year is producing a 5 gallon bucket a day. I can't seem to keep up so I am putting zucchini in everything!

2/3rds Cup Shredded Zucchini
3-4 THRIVE Scrambled Eggs* (depending on the size of your muffin tins)
1/8 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese or THRIVE Shredded Cheddar Cheese*
3 Slices of Bacon Cooked & Crumbled or THRIVE Bacon TVP*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 12 mini muffin tins.  Saute zucchini over medium heat until browned.  Remove from heat and layer on a paper towel to remove excess moisture.  Fill the bottom of each tin with a layer of zucchini, cheese, bacon and eggs.  Fill tins 3/4 full.  Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until eggs are set.

Food Storage Recipe: Squash and Beef Casserole

This little casserole recipe is so easy and is made from 100% food storage ingredients and veggies from our garden.  I have to admit that I love a great casserole.  Even with the extreme heat we have had I still want a nice hot meal for dinner.  The time and effort that it takes to make this casserole are minimal.  I was also able to use the leftovers in my meal the next day.  We combined the casserole with a little instant rice and dinner was done!

shelf reliance recipe

I started off by washing and slicing my squash and zucchini into 1/4" slices.  

squash casserole

I then tossed them in olive oil until they were evenly coated and layered them into a greased 9" x 11" glass dish. I topped the veggies with a little seasoning (Paula Deen's House Seasoning)  If you have not tried this seasoning you need to give it a go.  We love using this seasoning and mixing it up in a shaker makes it easy to spice up a large dish or a small meal for one.

After baking the veggies layer them with ground beef, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.  So delicious.

House Seasoning To Taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Toss squash and zucchini with olive oil and layer in a greased 9" x 11" glass dish.  Top with house seasoning.  Bake for 30 minutes or until tender.  Combine Spaghetti Sauce and re-hydrated ground beef then pour over veggies.  Top with re-hydrated cheese and bake uncovered for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Summer Squash Casserole

Even after canning all day I still ended up with a load of Squash & Zucchini.  I decided to make my delicious Squash Casserole.  This is a very easy recipe.  It's a little time consuming cutting up all of the ingredients but it is well worth the work and the leftovers taste great.  

Zucchini Casserole

I cut my squash and zucchini into half inch to one inch squares

Garlic Onions

While I am busy cutting my veggies I start browning the onions and garlic.  By this time 
the house is already starting to smell great!

Awesome Squash Casserole

Once everything is browned I add sour cream, salt and pepper.  I mix it in the
same dish that I baked the casserole in.  No need to dirty up extra bowls!

I then top the casserole with crushed croutons and a little bit of extra cheese.

Bake on 350 for 20 minutes and enjoy!!

2 Tbs Olive Oil
8 Cups Diced Squash & Zucchini
1/2 Vidalia Onion Diced
4 Garlic Cloves Minced
2/3 Cup Sour Cream
1 Cup Crushed Croutons 
Salt & Pepper To Taste 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Brown onions and garlic in a small pan, set aside.  Cook squash and zucchini in a skillet on medium high heat until veggies are tender and starting to brown.  Once cooked combine squash and zucchini with your onions and garlic.  Mix in the cheese, sour cream and salt & pepper.  Top with croutons and bake for 20 minutes.
