Note: This recipe is featured today in a guest post I wrote for Money Saving Mom®. Here is the link to the guest post! And below is the original write-up I published about it here on the Pretty/Hungry blog. ~ ~ You might recall my shock and awe back when I published this post about […]
~ One of the baking contests in this post is being featured today on the fabulous Money Saving Mom® blog! Pop over there and take a peek, then come back and tell me all about your own Christmas traditions in the comments. Love ya much! Happy baking. XO ~ The Christmas Season is upon us! We […]
I’ve done a lot of talking ’round these parts about what a blessing it has been for my family to dramatically slash our grocery budget. For one thing, it has made me more creative and less wasteful! Here are a couple of recipes that were born of necessity when we had almost nothing in the […]
Can I hear a shout out from fellow lovers of Crystal Paine, the “Money Saving Mom“? I love all of Crystal’s tips, coupons, e-mails, and blog posts. They’ve been very helpful to me as I’ve embarked on this journey of overhauling our family’s spending habits. Do you know she will even e-mail you a weekly […]
About a year ago, in the midst of a scary time for our family (as Chris and I prepared for my impending mastectomy) we took a little weekend trip to California for a wedding. It turned out to be more fun than we could’ve ever imagined! Now we talk constantly about going back to Palm […]
I’m honored and excited to be guest-posting over at MoneySavingMom.com today! If you’ve not heard of it yet, Crystal’s site is a fantastic resource for anyone looking for creative solutions to cut excess spending in your life! My featured article is about a creative breakfast idea I had a few weeks ago. I found […]
If you offer me free food (pretty much whatever it is) I will take it home and figure out how to cook it. It’s the budget-er in me that just can’t stand to see food go to waste. Even if it is one ring of onion from your fast food cheeseburger… I will take it […]
Recently, I wrote about how I grocery shop and keep our monthly food spending to $200 per month. (If you’d like to read that post, you can find it HERE!) ~ We haven’t always budgeted this way. In fact, a look back into some of the older posts on this blog will quickly prove that! […]
What is your grocery shopping style? Do you walk every single aisle without a list and just grab whatever you want/need? (FYI: That was my shopping style for the first 26 years of my life.) Do you make a list and stick to it with Nazi-esque dedication? Are you a cash-only family, a la […]
My family has begun the process of moving all my Grandma’s belongings into an assisted living facility (and getting rid of those she doesn’t have room for.) What a yucky and discouraging transition this can be! While one can’t argue the inevitable need for more focused care when our loved ones grow old… it just […]
Wowee! This dish is everything I like in a meal! Budget-friendly, ultra-flavorful, pretty to look at, and quick to prep. I tell ya, you can’t beat a meal like that… no Siree. ~ I love that this sauce is a step away from the norm too. It’s still a rich & satisfying red sauce… but […]
I absolutely love gift-giving. It’s one of my favorite things about the Holiday season! But sometimes coming up with Christmas gift ideas for the people on your list is pretty darn difficult! I’ve decided that EVERYone should have a Pinterest board like this one. (So that we can all have access to an ongoing, […]
I think sometimes we get stuck in cooking ruts… I know I do. Take cornbread, for example. I had long ago firmly decided that I like savory cornbread, not sweet. And that I like my savory cornbread to have an extremely crispy bottom crust (practically fried from the cast iron skillet.) And that was that. And just when I’m sure there […]
I am a big fan of weekend breakfasts. Throughout the week, we are cereal & oatmeal people. But weekends are when we pull out the big guns! Bread Pudding, Breakfast Pizza, and my husband’s personal favorite, Biscuits & Sausage Gravy. Of course, we can’t eat this way all the time… but special occasions come around […]
Do you know what my most FAVORITE category on this blog is? Not dessert, not bread (though I love both those things)… but Budget! The thrill I get a from a good deal is unmatched. So today, I’m sharing with you a meal idea that is not only extremely budget-friendly, but a big-time crowd-pleaser. […]
