Grilled Buttermilk Chicken Salad

During the summer and warmer months, I often want something a little lighter for dinner. You won’t find many soups or casseroles on my menu plan right now. I am much more likely to grill something or make a salad. I love salad for dinner. It is a quick, easy, and healthy meal. However, my husband does not really like just salad for dinner. In […]

Frugal Soups

It is fall and fall is perfect soup weather. One of the things that I like about fall and winter is that I can start cooking soups again. I know some people eat soup during the summer, but I don’t like to. I just can’t enjoy a bowl of steamy, hot soup in July when it is 99 degrees out. I need cool weather to put […]

Vanilla Wafer Ice Cream Sandwiches

Two ingredients is all you need for this quick and easy dessert! Vanilla Wafer Ice Cream Sandwiches are so good and easy to make ahead! It seems like every once in a while I have a conversation with one of my parents that gives me a glimpse of their childhood that I have never seen before. I enjoy this when it happens. It is good […]

Frugal Snacks

This week I made some frosting for a cake and I decided I did not need it all. So, I used some of it to make these for my kids. Graham crackers with frosting. Have you ever had these? They make a great, easy, and frugal snack. Not the healthiest, but they are a great treat for once in awhile. My mom used to give […]

No Knead Bread

I enjoy making bread. Bread and bread products are one of my favorite things to make. I love to experiment and try new recipes. But I have a few favorites that I continue to go back to. This recipe is one of those. I saw this on a Martha Stewart show over two years ago. I immediately wanted to try it. I was fascinated by […]

Raisin Pie

This recipe for raisin pie was one I was unsure of when I made it. When I saw the recipe I thought it would be worth trying, but I was unsure about what my family would think. They actually enjoyed it. I was surprised. In this day and age, we are spoiled by fancy, chocolate filled, sugar filled desserts. In our time raisin pie seems […]

Irish Soda Bread

Making bread and bread products at home is one of the easiest ways to save money on your grocery bill. But many people are intimidated by recipes that contain yeast and require a lot of kneading. This recipe today though is very simple. It has no yeast and no kneading. It is a form of a quick bread and similar to a biscuit. It is […]

Hot Milk Cake

Need an easy old fashioned dessert? Try Hot Milk Cake! This depression era cake is simple to make using basic ingredients.  I love simple old fashioned desserts. You know, the kind our grandmothers used to make. The simple, frugal kind of recipes. The ones that use basic ingredients that we always have on hand. Sure, I like fancy cakes, pies, and cookies. In fact, have […]

Frugal Meal Catagory

I was recently searching my site for a recipe. I could not find it. I knew I had posted, it but could not find it. I used the search box and nothing. I looked under some of the categories and nothing. I then remembered I had used it for a Frugal Friday. I eventually found it under the Frugal Friday category. I ended up wasting […]

Frugal Meal Idea

We enjoy Mexican food in our family. We have it quite often for dinner. One of our favorite things to have is homemade refried beans, Mexican Rice, and cheese quesadillas. You will see this on the menu at least twice a month. This is one of the few meals that I cook over and over again. I posted several months ago how I make my […]
