Catching Up – and Big News!

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 05:15:04 +0000

Wow, can’t believe it’s been 3 years since my last post – seems like yesterday. And I apologize that it seems like I disappeared off the face of this earth with no warning. Long story short, after dealing with so much illness between 2011-2015, I kind of lost the identity of blogger, and picked up […]

Tofu Tortilla Casserole

Wed, 04 Feb 2015 04:45:54 +0000

I’m a huge fan of Amy’s frozen organic entrees. One of my favorites is their Santa Fe Enchilada Bowl. It’s a lovely little individual serving of corn, pinto beans, layered tortillas, jack cheese, tofu, rice and enchilada sauce. It’s absolutely delicious and makes a great lunch. However, at anywhere from $3 to $5 for ten ounces […]

5 For $20 Challenge: Authentic Puerto Rican Chuletas and Arroz Con Gandules

Sun, 01 Feb 2015 04:45:43 +0000

To close the chapter on our 5 for $20 Challenge, I decided to take the package of pork chops and, with a little bit of assistance from B’s bestie Ronni, got the recipe for Chuletas (Pork Chops) and Arroz con Gandules (Rice with Pigeon Peas). I’ve written previously about my version (adapted from one I […]

Keeping it Local: Mosley’s Meat Market

Sat, 31 Jan 2015 04:29:13 +0000

We love keeping our money in the local economy. We also love stores that remind us of those our grandparents frequented when we were kids. Sadly, there aren’t too many of these left, so when we happen upon one, we’re thrilled. B’s physical therapist mentioned Mosley’s Meat Market to her during a session late last […]

Baked Caramelized Mushroom, Onion, Spinach, and Swiss Cheese Frittata

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 04:50:34 +0000

After we’d made strombolis over the weekend with Yahnni, we were left with a bunch of ingredients that begged to be used.  Since I didn’t want to let leftover browned crumbled Italian sausage, cubed Jarlsberg swiss cheese, or sliced cremini mushrooms go to waste, I adapted the following recipe to use them and it turned out […]

5 For $20 Challenge: Honey Balsamic Baked Chicken Thighs

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 17:25:59 +0000

The fourth evening of our 5 For $20 Challenge found me with just a package of chicken thighs and a pair of pork chops remaining. Chicken thighs are versatile, protein-dense, and almost impossible to screw up. B. found this recipe and insisted that I make it. The thighs turned out very well, juicy and flavorful […]

5 For $20 Challenge: Slow Cooker Creamy Beef Stroganoff

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 04:54:05 +0000

The third night of our 5 For $20 Challenge found me going back to beef as the centerpiece protein. Since I had nearly a pound of beef round strips for stir fry, I knew I’d have to find a recipe that cooked low and slow if I wanted the beef to tenderize during cooking. As […]

5 for $20 Challenge: One Pot Cheesy Chicken Taco Rice

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 04:45:54 +0000

For the second leg of the 5 for $20 Challenge, I had to find a recipe that used a pound of 85% lean ground chicken.  After a fairly exhaustive search, I decided to attempt the One Pot Cheesy Chicken Taco Rice recipe that I found on Host the Toast.  It was a good choice — we’ve […]

5 for $20 Challenge: Carbonnade

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 02:23:53 +0000

The first protein we chose to use in the 5 for $20 Challenge was the package of two beef chuck tenderloin steaks. These weighed in at about 13 ounces, so our attempt at this recipe was a bit light on meat. Despite that, the finished product was absolutely amazing. Note that the beer I used […]

5 For $20 Challenge: Introduction

Sat, 24 Jan 2015 16:56:42 +0000

Giant-Eagle, a Pittsburgh-based supermarket chain, recently began an in-store promotion where they offer selected meats and poultry at five packages for $20. Usually their marked price is between $4.75 and $6.00 per package, so this is a pretty good value. As we always love a challenge, we got the idea to see whether we could […]
