I wanted a corn muffin recipe I could double and triple easily to bring to our Thanksgivings this year. Finances are tight so I wanted to make something that tasted and looked more expensive and gourmet than it really was. I remembered having some delicious gourmet corn muffins at a breakfast a few years ago with real corn kernels that were very sweet and moist and I wanted to make that deliciousness for everyone else.
They turned out wonderful and picky DBF requested I make them again. Major compliments everywhere. A definite crowd pleaser!!!! (and very simple per Jiffy box). I recommend doubling the ingredients to make 16 because these are yummy and disappear fast! :)
I made 5 batches for thanksgiving so $2.15 for the 5 Jiffy boxes $1.00 for the eggs (and I had extras to make breakfast for days) $1.50 for the cans of creamed corn and I had milk, honey, and spices on hand. I spent about $4.65 for 40 yummy corn muffins so not too shabby! I guess I'm sort of the "Frugal Gourmet." lol
Pizza made into a salad! I just dreamed this up today and it tastes very yummy. You can mix it up by using both mozzarella and cheddar or provolone instead of mozz. You could also try adding pizza veggies like 1/4 cup green bell pepper julienne sliced in inch long pieces or fresh sliced mushrooms.
Less time to make, more time to play! My version of the classically-unique and impressive alternative to chili on game day or a cold night. Your guests or family will think you slaved all day! So easy, just dump and simmer. Makes a lot. Can be prepared ahead of time and freezes well.
My first Zaar recipe! Yummy, easy main course, only 15 minutesish to make! Add vegetables like fresh diced tomato (has to be fresh, canned will run), zucchini, sundried tomato or fresh broccoli if you like (steam and add toward the end--after milk). I would have done it but my DBF *hates* veggies.
One idea would be to roast some Mediterranean type vegetables in the oven at 400 degrees for around 20 minutes with olive oil. Toss them into the dish.
