Takeout is one of those things that can be a budget and gut buster.  While you can make healthy choices while eating out, sometimes it’s better to just cook at home to save money and a lot of calories!  Here are a few recipe ideas that you can have cooked before you’d have time to […]

    We are enjoying lots of squash, apples and other fall produce!  If you’ve ever picked apples, you’ll need some recipes – so the Strawberry Applesauce in last week’s link up stood out to me. Sweeten it with strawberries and you’ve really got my attention! *These prices are based off of averages and are subject to […]

      It was 45 degrees here this morning, so that’s hot cocoa and butternut squash weather in my book. While you guys submitted lots of fun fall recipes last week, I actually chose to feature this Homemade Ranch Dressing because I can’t wait to try it! Seriously, where was this recipe when I was pregnant and […]

        This is a bit of a hectic week for my family, so I’m all about meals I can throw together in a hurry.  Chopping up some fresh veggies, searing meat and making quick sauces are all keys to eating healthy & then getting back to life. See current menu plans. Pork Loin Medallions & Balsamic […]

            Man it’s hot out there!  I’m doing everything I can to avoid heating up the kitchen this week so we are eating lots of refreshing cool foods instead. Be sure to take advantage of the delicious cherries, peaches and other fruits that will only be in season for the next few weeks. *These prices […]

              I am really getting myself back on track this week with Weight Watchers after slowly slipping away from points tracking over the last couple months. I’m in the mood for some satisfying meals that are so good you don’t feel like you are missing anything. Several of these recipes have lime, cilantro and jalapenos […]

              With farmers’ markets opening their doors and home gardens slowly beginning to produce, you might have a lot of delicious fruits and vegetables on hand. One way to save money on groceries is to stock your pantry with the essential dry and canned goods and then supplement with fresh produce each week. I love combining fruit […]

                Sometimes with budget menu planning, you cook what the ads are telling you to cook. Nearly every store in the South East has pork roasts, taters, onions, corn and peaches on sale so I’ve incorporated those into the healthy meal ideas this week. July 4th is also a big week for meat sales in general […]

                  It’s officially summer and instead of heating up the kitchen we are grilling out this week!  You’ll notice that the marinades call for staple pantry items, which by now I’m hoping you’ve stocked up on. If not, a lot of these recipes call for similar items so at least you can buy it once and […]
