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. […]

Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

I posted this in April for Kitchen Tip Tuesday. I wanted to link to it for Frugal Upstate’s egg week. I was in the doctor’s office recently waiting with my daughter. I picked up a cooking magazine to look through. That was about the only magazine worth looking at. I was so glad I picked it up though because I read a great tip. It […]

Quick and Easy Pasta Dinner

I made a quick and easy pasta recipe last night for dinner. It only took about 15 minutes to cook. While the pasta cooked I worked on the rest of the ingredients. I served it with bread that I had made earlier in the day.

Chili and Cornbread

Monday night for dinner I made cornbread and chili. I think of chili as a winter comfort food type meal. My husband on the other hand could and will eat chili all year long. I just can’t enjoy a bowl of chili when it is August and 102 degrees outside. So, I decided to put it on this weeks menu to be sure I got […]

Cooking, Baking, and Gardening

I actually quite a bit of cooking today but did not have time to post the recipes. I will try to post them in the next few days. I made two loaves of banana bread. I am going to send a plate full of it to my husband’s office tomorrow. I also made brownies. It was a recipe my sister told me about and it […]
