It’s been great fun since our copy of my latest cookbook, Good Cheap Eats arrived. The publishing house gets a few boxes of “advance copies” before the official release date. I got one! Yay! It was a very great surprise in my mailbox that day. Since it arrived, I’ve still had my head down working […]

While I have many different banana recipes to rely on — Coconut Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Banana Pecan Coffeecake, and Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting — I decided to try something different.
I wanted something lightly-sweetened. The kids have been great about not going overboard since we went off our sugar fast, but there’s been an increase in bad attitudes that has me wondering.
Bake up a batch of this Milk and Honey Cornbread. It’s lightly sweetened and delicious for breakfast or the bread basket. A few weeks/months ago I found some Bob’s Red Mill Corn Flour on clearance at Sprouts. If I’ve ever purchased corn flour, it was many, many moons ago. I have no recollection of it. […]

Add a little something special to your evening meal by making your own savory bread. It’s much tastier than store-bought and cheaper too. Homemade bread is one of life’s simple pleasures. Flour, water, yeast, salt, a bit of oil or butter, maybe some sugar or honey: these things combine into tasty, aromatic bread. It’s science, […]
A five-pound bag of flour costs $2.99 at Trader Joe’s. It’s unbleached, all-purpose. If I want to take my baking up a notch, I can buy the white whole wheat flour for $3.99. This, my friends, plus a little oil, water, and yeast, can bring you many meals of utter enjoyment. Of course there’s pizza, […]
Cinnamon Toast is a comfort, isn’t it? Make snacking croutons with dry bread for a good cheap eat. At the beginning of the Pantry Challenge, I cleaned out the freezers and inventoried what we had. That amounted to quite a few heels from sandwich bread. Those are generally the last pieces to be eaten around […]
There’s nothing to get you ready for a holiday like making the meal three and a half weeks in advance. Just call me Martha for baking a full turkey dinner while there are still bags of Halloween candy stashed all over my house. But, you see, unlike Martha, preparing a turkey dinner gets me all […]
Cinnamon Rolls are something that you can make yourself. They may seem intimidating, but they really aren’t. I have very fond memories of the cinnamon rolls of my childhood. The best ones were those that my Aunt Sandy made when she worked the kitchen at the Monroe Cafe. Those were pretty amazing. The cinnamon rolls […]
