Updated Molasses Cookies

On Tuesday I wrote about what happens when you do not follow a cookie recipe. Well, here is a picture of the molasses cookies when they are done according to directions. These are a thin but chewy cookie. I think the longer you refrigerate them the better they will turn out. So I would recommend at least 4-6 hours in the refrigerator or overnight. These […]

Baking Is A Science

Baking is a science. When you cook something like a casserole or soup you can change things around and still get good results. If you vary the ingredients or cooking time it may not be as good but it will still work. Baking on the other hand is like science. There is a reason there is a certain amount of baking soda to flour to […]

Jasmine Rice

I found a new way to cook rice. Well, not new but new to me. I saw a recipe on Martha Stewart where they cooked Jasmine Rice in coconut milk (not cream of coconut but coconut milk). It sounded like it would be very good. I did an Internet search to find a recipe. I found this one at 101 cookbooks. I think that one […]

My Mother’s Day Gift

My ten year old daughter made me this for Mother’s Day. She made this all by herself. I LOVE it. It was so sweet of her. She learned to crochet when she was eight years old. And has been making doilies ever since. She prefers to work with small threads and hooks, so doilies are something she loves to do. She made one just like […]

Frugal Dinner-Salmon Burgers

I apologize for the picture above. It is not the best quality, but by the time I discovered the poor quality of the picture the salmon burgers were long gone. This burger/sandwich is very good and inexpensive to make. You can usually find canned salmon on sale for a good price. I get mine in a four pack at Sam’s club. I think the quality […]

Preventing Freezer Burn

My tip for today is a simple one. In order to cut down on freezer burn, limit how much you open your freezer. The more you open it, the more freezer burn you will get. We keep our meat and some of our other frozen foods in a freezer outside in our shop. I try to figure out what I need from that freezer once […]

My Nice "Quiet" Walk

This evening I decided to go for a walk. I was wanting a little peace and quiet and some fresh air. I started down our driveway and saw something like this…….. Not exactly peace and quite is it! This is not the exact snack but it looks very close to what I saw. I thought it was a copperhead but was not sure. I did […]

Thoughts From an Eight Year Old On Being Frugal

I was talking to my daughter this week about buying some cookies at the store. She said to me, “Mom, I think you should save your money and make your own cookies.” What insight from an eight year old! We are trying to teach our kids the value of money. She understands more then I realized she did. Why can’t more adults grasp this simple […]

Easy Granola Bars

It has been a long time since I have made homemade granola bars. I have been wanting to make some but wanted to try a new recipe. I found one on allrecipes.com that I decided to try. I read quite a few of the comments that people had made and decided to change a few things. I used several of the suggestions and came up […]

Works For Me

I have collected a lot of recipes from magazines and the internet over the years. It took me awhile to figure out how to organize them. I finally have found that this system works the best for me. I have a 3 ring binder for each magazine or website. I usually can remember where a recipe came from. I know I like Martha Stewart’s biscuit. […]
