    One of my favorite tools in the kitchen is my slow cooker. There is no better feeling after a long day than coming how to dinner almost done! Using my crock pot on busy days helps eliminate any temptation to eat out as well. And eating at home is generally great for your budget! This recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos is a tried and true favorite at our house! It only uses 4 ingredients (plus toppings). This recipe is a great source of lean protein, calcium and vitamin C. You can use whole grain tortillas for added fiber. Give the recipe a try and enjoy your dinner being hot and ready at 5pm!

    Fresh greens topped with plump, juicy blackberries, crispy bacon, crumbled blue cheese, and homemade honey balsamic vinaigrette.

    My original intention with this recipe was to make a Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwich. I adore fried green tomatoes, I love their tang and their overall flavor and thought they'd be the perfect replacement for a red tomato in the traditional BLT sandwich. Well...I can't find green tomatoes...anywhere. I've called every single grocery store near one has them. The farmer's market is a little far away for me to drive out for just a tomato, and the other one (that I know of!) nearby has the same hours that we were in church. I'm sure there are others and I'm hoping to discover them this summer. So I decided to try the sandwich with a tomatillo instead. It goes like this...pull off the leafy outside. Slice. Saute with salt and pepper. Put on sandwich. Loved the tangy flavor that the tomatillos added to the sandwich...great complement to the slight tang in the mayo, plus the crisp from the bacon. Delightful sandwich here y'all!

    While my kids really love pizza, they're all very picky about their toppings and it seems like they each want something different. That's why I love these Pita Pizza Pockets - they're super easy to make, the kids enjoy helping to make their own, and everybody gets exactly what they want in them. I cut the pitas in half, cooked the sausage and assembled the other ingredients on the table in advance then called the kids in to let them help put their own pizza pockets together before I popped them in the oven. They only take a few minutes and the kids had a blast helping make their own dinner.

    Sloppy Joes are perfect winter comfort food. But what if you're serving a crowd and want to keep costs low? Snobby Joes to the rescue. Made with lentils instead of ground beef, Snobby Joes are a family favorite at my house. They cook up quickly and taste just as good as the real deal.

    Ever since a new Indian restaurant opened up in our town last fall, I can't get enough. It's become my new foodie obsession. For me, it wasn't enough to just enjoy a nice meal out every other month. I wanted to recreate these colorful flavors at home. If you're new to Indian cooking, don't let these recipes overwhelm you. Just because the list of ingredients is longer than usual, it doesn't mean they're difficult or expensive. It's true, you may have to spend a little bit on your initial investment in Indian cookery. Garam Masala, Turmeric, and other spices are a must, and they can set you back $5-7 per bottle. However, they last a long time and ensure the authentic flavors of India. Plus, most of the other ingredients required are inexpensive and help offset the cost of the spices. This recipe for one of my favorites, Chana Masala, is so flavorful you'll forget that it's vegetarian...and frugal!

    When my kids are in school I make these yummy Banana Oatmeal Squares as snacks. Luckily, I had a bunch of very overripe bananas on hand one day so it was a great way to use those (I also freeze overripe bananas to use in recipes.) I did hit one snag and here is a general cooking hint (and one I usually follow): check to see if you have all the ingredients you need BEFORE you go shopping and don't assume you have all the staples on hand. After I had already started making the squares, I realized that I did not have any rolled oats, but did have steel cut oats. The recipe was far more chewy with those, even after letting the batter soak for an hour. They were actually really good, just a totally different texture.

    Seafood tends to be on the expensive side, but I like to splurge every now and then. The key to keeping your grocery bill and dinner costs low is to pair more expensive ingredients, like salmon or shrimp, with inexpensive side dishes. You can still make a delicious seafood spread for under $10! Below is a recipe for Grilled Citrus Salmon Packets, whish my family loved!

    Is there any leftover Halloween candy staring you down? It's time to take control and do something with that candy. May I suggest a pan of Peanut Butter Rolo Blondies? And if you can't find enough Rolos in your Halloween candy stash, go to the store and buy some. These blondies are worth the extra trip to the store. And if you are embarrassed that you are buying candy so soon after Halloween, wear your Halloween costume. No one will know it's you. :) These blondies are easy to whip up. I love one pan treats! Especially when peanut butter, chocolate, and caramel are involved. I didn't chop up the Rolos because I wanted big hunks of chocolate and caramel in my blondies. If you prefer a smaller burst of chocolate and caramel, feel free to chop up the Rolo candies before mixing them into the Peanut Butter Blondie batter. Either way, they will be good. The Peanut Butter Blondies are thick, soft, and loaded with chewy chocolate caramel candy. Good thing the recipe makes a large pan because you are going to want more than one of these Peanut Butter Rolo Blondies.

    My kids love eggs. (Both my 9 year old and 7 year old are now quite proficient at making scrambled eggs for breakfast.) They also love avocado. And English muffins. And chips and salsa. I took a risk in putting all these things together for a "breakfast for dinner" meal, and it was a big success. (Minus the chips, but I suppose you could add those if you wanted a little crunch in your 'wich!) 2 of the 3 didn't make any comment about the cilantro in the eggs. And the third said he'd try this new egg 'without the green thing'...I'm calling that a success y'all. And this was a big winner with the adults as well. All the different flavors and textures make this a perfect 'brinner' meal, in our book.

    Thanks so much to Melissa Earl from Living a Frugal Life for sharing this great recipe. Crock pot recipes are great ways to stretch your budget but still be able to have a great tasting meal. And as a bonus you get to save tons of time and make it seem like you spent long hours in the kitchen. This chicken recipe is especially nice because it is very versatile and you can make a large batch and freeze 1/2 of it so you can have 2 meals out of 1!

    Recipe #516738

    My kids and I love sweet potatoes, but my husband isn't as found of them as we are, so I am always trying new ways of serving sweet potatoes to make them more appealing to him. When I adapted my Twice Baked Potatoes recipe and replaced the potatoes with sweet potatoes I finally found a recipe that he really liked. I usually bake sweet potatoes in the oven. But there are times when I am cooking something that takes up the entire oven or is cooked at a very different temperature and it makes it inconvenient to bake sweet potatoes at the same time. On those days, I wish for a double oven, but use the slow cooker to "bake" the sweet potatoes.

    Recipe #516737

    On to the soup...Rice and Bean Soup...aka "Cupboard Soup," as in use what you've got in the cupboard...aka "Oops, don't have any split peas, so can't make split pea soup Soup"...So, yes I am not prepared for this one! Totally thought there were split peas in the cupboard, but there weren't, so we improvised...

    Recipe #516736

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, nutritionally speaking. This particular breakfast is NOT nutritional, but it is a wonderful, delicious, decadent breakfast for a special occasion. This is the breakfast that everyone asks for when it is their birthday or other special day. We have this a few times a year, and only on the weekend when a protein fueled brain is not as essential as on weekdays. I warn you, this recipe may be addictive! It tastes so delicious and yet is so frugal that you could have it more often, but then the specialness of it would be diminished and your nutritional needs may not be satisfied.

    Recipe #516735

    I love a nice tender steak topped with crumbled blue cheese. That got me thinking about how to make a recipe to get close to that flavor yet enjoyable for the kids and used what I had on hand. By the time I got it in the oven, I was really craving that meaty blue cheese flavor and crossing my fingers it was going to turn out like I wanted. I'm very happy to report that this is completely delicious. I made large ones with a regular muffin tin and smaller ones with a mini muffin tin. They were better as bite size sides or appetizers, but I wouldn't have complained to eat just those for dinner! The kids loved them, but I did have to call them muffins.

    Spring is here. (I think.) I know in many parts of the country, it seems like you skipped spring. 30 degrees one day, 80 degrees the next. While the weather hasn't been quite that hormonal around here, it certainly smells like spring and there is pollen dust everywhere. *achoo* Actually, we did have a hormonal weather day earlier this was 68 when the kids left for shorts and t-shirts...and by lunchtime it was 45. Thankfully it was raining, so they didn't go out for recess. I did not send coats because I had no clue that a cold front was coming through. DOH! I figure if that's my biggest #momfail of the week, I'm doing alright!!! I digress. This is a fabulously flavorful dish and perfect for spring. It's light, but warm and oh so sabroso. (For some reason, sabroso popped in my head as I was thinking "oh so"...sabroso means flavorful in Spanish. So while I'm being redundant in that sentence, I'm pretending that I'm not.) Adore how the white wine flavors mesh with the lemon and the sweet peas...perfection in a pot here y'all. Also, I should note that I don't buy "fancy ingredients" like cooking wines very often. So when I do, I like to use them wisely (sorta sparingly!). A good substitute for the white wine would be chicken stock. And you could reduce overall meal costs by serving with rice instead of potatoes. :)

    Recipe #516733

    Healthy, delicious, inexpensive fast food! When time and ingredients are in short supply and you are hungry, this is a great dish. You can leave the peppers out if you don't have them handy, everything else is a staple that is always on hand at my house. Even my son, who normally dislikes onions and peppers, loves them in this dish. (How cool is that?)

    Recipe #516732

    I love those recipes that don't require much thought. This is a simple and easy twist on my Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken. Just put your chicken in the slow cooker, add the sloppy sauce and cook. It's a crowd-pleasing meal with little effort.

    Recipe #516715

    German Chocolate Cake is at the top of my list of favorite desserts. Which is why I don't make it very often! Especially since I like to create an extra thick topping that is piled on top rather than running off like a glaze. When I make it, I ask the kids to hide it from me, but the trail of cake crumbs usually gives away the hiding spot. The best solution I have found for my lack of self-control is to make this cake when we have company and then encourage them to take some home when they leave. The last time I was slicing it for guests to take home a friend called me on it and said, "So you want us to eat it for breakfast instead of you?" I told her that was exactly my intention and she said, "I don't have a problem with that." Now, that's a good friend! This is a great recipe to serve when some of your guests cannot consume dairy. It is so easy to replace the dairy found in the recipe with coconut or almond products without compromising the original flavor of the recipe. If you don't have German's Sweet Chocolate you can use a substitute.
