Sun Oven Sunday – Self-Rising Biscuit Bread (No Yeast!)

biscuit-bread-3

A few days ago I re-read this article on How to Make Self-Rising Flour and since I’ve never actually tried making bread without yeast and because I wanted to make bread in my sun oven this weekend, I decided to give it a go.

Substituting for yeast is actually incredibly easy. Basically, you just use …

Sun Oven Sunday – Cherry Cobbler

sun-oven-cobbler-7

Last week my wife made cherry cobbler on a whim which was delicious so I figured I would try it and see what happens in the sun oven. Fortunately, this recipe is super simple and, yes, I know it’s supposed to brown and won’t do so in a sun oven but I was still curious …

Sun Oven Sunday – German Pancakes Fail!

sun-oven-pancakes-3

I decided to make what we call “German Pancakes”–I’m not sure what they’re actually called–on a whim last night for dinner but wound up with an utter failure. The recipe is super simple, combine 6 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour and mix until it looks a bit like batter:

Then bake at about …

Sun Oven Sunday – Baked Tilapia

fish-2

Since we were having fish the other night I figured I should try it in the sun oven just ’cause I can. The idea is super simple since it’s already frozen… just douse with Italian dressing and cook at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.

I let the sun oven pre-heat a bit (it got …

Sun Oven Sunday – Pepperoni and Cheese Pizza

sun-oven-pizza-4

I’ve been meaning to get back into using my sun oven and, fortunately or not, it took going camping to do it. In fact, I wasn’t planning on using my sun oven at all while we camped but I brought it anyway and since the sun was out we figured we would try to make …

Sun Oven Sunday – Best Ever Pork And Beans

I’ve been slacking lately with my sun oven posts, probably due to the changing of seasons. Anyway, I thought I would search for some descent recipes online (that we’re too complicated too) and found this one for pork and beans:…

1 can Campbell’s pork and beans 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 teaspoon dried onion 1 teaspoon

Sun Oven Sunday – Oatmeal (for Breakfast)

I was in the mood for some oatmeal on Saturday–my kids least favorite breakfast meal, by the way–and I figured why not try the sun oven. After all, this will probably be a breakfast staple around our house if times get tough.

It was simple enough. I wanted to make two servings so I measured …

Sun Oven Sunday – Saltine Crackers? (Not Exactly)

The sun finally cooperated long enough for me to use my sun oven again. This time I wanted to try making saltine crackers. While I wasn’t expecting crackers like I get from the store, I was expecting something a bit better than what came out of the oven when I decided it wasn’t getting any …

Sun Oven Sunday – I Tried Making Flour From Rice Instead

Since the weather has been crummy for the past few days, I didn’t have a chance to use my Sun Oven. So, instead I decided to try something that I haven’t seen elsewhere in the preparedness community–and probably for good reason–I tried to make flour from rice in order to make a loaf of bread. …

Sun Oven Sunday – Vegetarian Chili

This week’s Sun Oven meal went off without a hitch, I’m happy to report. I tried vegetarian chili which, of course, I assumed I couldn’t get wrong but you never know when I’m cooking. I even tried to be a little daring this time and, instead of constant checking the oven’s alignment with the sun …
