Wow…that title sounds like a lot of good food for under $10.00 for a family of four…but it’s true! The word roulade simply means rolled. It looks (and sounds) fancy but it’s really easy. But if you don’t want to roll the tilapia, you can mound the crab stuffing on top of the fish and it […]
Here’s an easy and delicious variation on the burger, perfect for a Memorial Day cook-out!
I was looking through bon appetit magazine (September 2012 issue) when I found this recipe and it looked DELICIOUS….but I just assumed it would be way out of my $10 or less budget. Then I looked at it again and thought, I bet I can alter this a bit, get it in our price range and still make it taste good….which I did!
These burgers have a smoky, spicy flavor which pairs excellently with the cool cilantro aioli. And the homemade chips are so easy, you can literally cook them in minutes in the microwave, adding whatever oils and seasonings you prefer.
All three of these recipes work very well together. The red swiss chard has a kick to it that complements the cheesy polenta and it’s all so delicious!
You will not believe how easy and great tasting this homemade pizza crust and sauce are! It tastes like the real deal, and it costs so little to feed your whole family!
This chicken dish is so easy….it marinates overnight which allows for all the margarita flavors to really infuse the chicken with great flavors and it’s juicy. The tabbouleh is made with healthy bulgur wheat and lots of fresh veggies and herbs.
This Southern fare is fairly healthy…..The catfish has a crunchy coating with a flaky inside and the collard greens are delicious! Believe me, if you’ve never tasted collard greens, this is the recipe to try. And if you have had them before and didn’t like them, give them one more taste with this….so good! Both recipes are quick and easy to prepare and the entire meal (with corn on the cob) comes in at $8.97 for a family of four.
This recipe is elegant, easy and inexpensive…how much better can it get? Plus, the video features a very special guest: Executive Chef of the Cliff House at Pikes Peak, Scott Savage!
I found and made this delicious hearty Irish Beef Stew last year for the first time and it’s oh so good!
I’ve cooked chicken and fish piccata but had never thought about using pork…the other white meat. This meal is complete with your protein, orzo pasta and spinach.
This is so delicious and inexpensive. It’s quick, easy to prepare and tastes wonderful! I have actually served this when company comes for dinner-it’s that good! And depending on what you “top” it with, there’s not a lot of calories-no heavy cream or butter (but it tastes rich). Serve a wedge salad and some crusty multi-grain bread to round out the meal.
I got this recipe from my friend Sarah, who admittedly, is not the most enthusiastic cook. Before Sarah was married and had children, her typical dinners consisted of a bowl of cereal or a pan of Tuna Helper. Sarah and her husband take turns cooking dinner and believe me, when her turn comes, she’s racking […]
This recipe does take 3 hours to slow cook so you’d probably want to make it on the weekend, if you work out of the home. This makes a delicious meal for dinner, brunch or even breakfast! We all tasted this and everyone agreed it’s wonderful.
Brined Crispy Juicy Chicken Prep Time: 5 minutes Brine Time: 4-8 hours Cook Time: 1-1 1/2 hours Serves: 4 Cost: approx. $6.00 Brining the chicken makes it juicy. There are several ways to brine, and I do it the easiest way: with cold water and salt. The skin of the chicken blackens as the syrup/butter […]
I recently had someone write in, asking for an easy and inexpensive Chicken & Dumplings recipe that used ready-made ingredients. She wrote, “I want to recreate some of the meals I remember my mom making, like a big pot of chicken and dumplings, but with two children and working full-time, I don’t have time or the energy […]
It’s a tradition in the South to eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day. I’m a Yankee by birth but grew up in the South and this is just what we ate every year for good luck. There’s a lot of different explanations as to why black-eyed peas are considered lucky…
I found this delicious recipe on a friend’s FB page and the tacos looked so good but easy and inexpensive, I just had to try making them. And they were even better than I thought they would be. Becky Hardin, from The Cookie Rookie, is the author of this recipe and she uses Old El Paso […]
This meal not only sounds like an autumn meal, it tastes like one. And pairing a hearty soup and flavorful salad makes for a healthy, no-fuss meal….perfect for this time of year. The creamy apple and pecan recipe can be stuffed in pitas or simply served as a salad. If you like, you could add […]
There’s nothing like a hot bowl of chili on a cold evening….I know a lot of people have their own favorite chili recipe they make, as I do, but I also like to try new recipes or create new versions based on what I have on hand. Some people prefer beanless chili while others prefer meatless…if you’re like me, I like both beans and meat in mine.
