Recipes!!!…No Eggs Involved!…Power Out tomorrow

Half a chocolate Bundt cake 2Image via Wikipedia


Yep, we are going to have a power outage tomorrow so the electric company can put in a new transformer. I was asked the other day for unusual recipes to use food storage items. They weren’t meaning beans either…I love these recipes as they are for comfort foods but can be made without eggs during a time when it may not be possible to go to the store and purchase them. When the power comes back tomorrow I will post again but until consider how you would prepare meals if one of the ingredients you normally depend on is not available. How would you modify your recipes? Do you have a variety of recipes for the same foods, bread for example. There are bread recipes with sugar or honey and then there are those without any sweetener. There are breads with oil, butter or no fats. Do you have a variety in case one is no longer feasible to make?
