Penny Pincher: Use What You Have on Hand

ham-and-cheesy-potato-bites

We are all guilty of looking over those food items that are soon to expire in our fridge or cupboard.  Instead, we covet that which we don’t have and run to the grocery store in order to get the items we need to make a certain recipe.  Then, we forget about that soon-to-expire food until […]

Cheesy Potatoes

I haven’t taken a photo yet of this recipe, but made it quite a few times.  This dish is definitely a staple for our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, along with any potlucks or other group events.  It’s so easy for feeding a crowd. See here how I used it for a leftover dish. Cheesy Potatoes […]

Buttermilk Cornbread Mini Muffins

The other night we were invited to have a chili dinner at some friends’.  I told them I would bring cornbread.  Instead of making the Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread that I love, I decided to surf Allrecipes and look for something different.  I came across a recipe called Grandmother’s Buttermilk Cornbread and decided to use this […]

Although I’m very grateful for the home we are renting while we’re in transition, I do wish we had more sunlight shining in through our windows.  If you have a food blog, you more than likely understand the importance of natural lighting for food photography.  Even if we did have a good source of natural […]

My sister, Angie, was my inspiration to start cooking.  She is an amazing cook and really knows how to put things together.  Once in a while she’ll contribute to my food blog when, in actuality, she should have her own!  But, I’m grateful to share some of her tried and true recipe adventures when she […]

We had a few friends over for Election Night last Tuesday.  It was a last minute arrangement, so I needed to make something that included ingredients I already had on hand.  I picked up a Family Circle magazine the other day and it has this Pumpkin-Spice Bundt recipe.  Since I didn’t have cranberries, I substituted […]

Another recipe from our BYOP bash last Saturday.  I was visiting my family in Michigan all weekend, otherwise this would’ve been posted a little earlier.  And, I’m too unorganized to set up auto posts for while I’m away.  In the future I’ll work on that…  This dip is very fresh tasting.  It may seem there […]
