  • Don’t Know How to Cook? This Appliance Will Help

      How many of you enjoy cooking? Is it more of a chore, or is it fun for you? More often than not, I run into people who don’t enjoy cooking because they don’t know what they’re doing and don’t know where to start. One of my first questions is, “Do you have a slow […]

    Grilled Red Cabbage Steaks – 16¢

    My roommates and I have stumbled upon an amazing discovery on accident. Grilled cabbage! Every time we grill now we crave cabbage. We used to think cabbage was a mushy, old people food until we found this. A perfect side if you need to feed a boat load of people at a BBQ. If you […]

    7 Ways to Keep Your New Years Resolutions

    I don’t mean to sound like Miss Grumpy Pants at such a festive time of year, but hear me out. I don’t like New Years Resolutions, and I’ve stopped making them. People make them because they want to better themselves, which is all good and lovely. But it may be a little trickier than that. […]

    Why You Should Live Like You’re Poor {Even Though You’re Not}

    I’m not a financial advisor and I’m not wealthy, let’s just get that straight.

  • Self-Trust & Diets: Do you Trust Yourself?

      I’m a big fan of the book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. At my “real job” (a corporate setting), I was heavily encouraged (forced) to learn about this book and spend lunch hours listening to seminars about it. Admittedly, I had a bad attitude about it at first. I had always thought this […]

  • Homestyle Chicken & Onion Sauce over Orzo – $.71

    Here’s a painfully easy little ditty for those nights you get home from work and just want a nice, simple, homestyle meal without any fancy flavors. Don’t get me wrong, it was super tasty and tasted like something my grandmother would make for me. So cut up about 1/2 small onion and start boiling your […]

  • Eating Healthy Impossible for the Poor?

    I’m going to take a break from recipes and post this article ABC posted about poor people eating healthy. I think it’s very interesting and deserves a read. Half the reason I write on this site is to prove to myself and others that eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive, as you’ve already seen. […]

  • Broke & Unhealthy Gets You Nowhere

    I weigh more than I should for my height. I’ve visited Taco Hell more than I should have. I love real butter and sweets. I’m not a dietitian. I don’t even have a college degree. I’m poor and “don’t have the time” to make “real food”. Because I have a full time job (well, I […]
