Please your palate as well as your wallet!

Delicious dinners have never been so easy--or so inexpensive--to prepare. When both time and money are tight, it's tempting to buy cheap, processed foods, but it's not necessary. You can cook well with inexpensive cuts of meat, in-season vegetables that will fill you up, and a variety of side dishes to make based on what's on sale that week, or what's in your fridge. The fast and flexible recipes (you can swap ingredients if something is on sale) include:

  • Butternut Squash Chicken Pan Roast

  • BBQ-Beef Stuffed Potatoes

  • Tuna Hash Brown Casserole

  • Bacon and Chives Frittata

  • Slow Cooker Pork and Beans 

No matter your budget, the recipes, shopping lists, and tricks to stretch pricey ingredients are invaluable.
