Asian Pork Kabobs Recipe

Every time I add a dish that calls for pork to the menu, Liz cringes. It’s not because she dislikes the taste, she just doesn’t feel that it is that budget friendly. So I’ve had to be creative with the cuts of meat I incorporate into the dishes. This Asian Pork Kabobs Recipe uses one […]

Holiday Menu: Main Dishes

We are back again today, continuing our Holiday Menu. We have shared appetizers including the fun Santa and his Reindeer, and side dishes with our family favorite, Hashbrown Potato Casserole. Today we are tackling Main Dishes; ham, turkey, prime rib, etc…there are lots of options. We fix our Ham pretty typically with a brown sugar […]

Grilled Pork Ribs

Pork Ribs aren’t really your typical budget friendly meal, but occasionally you need to splurge and stretch your budget. To get the most for our money we like to use Spare Ribs, there is a little more waste to them but the cost savings balances it out. Besides, Doug got the chance to try out a new […]

Easy BLT Pie

A Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato Sandwich is one of the first sandwiches I learned to make while growing up, and this has remained one of our family’s favorites. There is something about the combination of the crisp lettuce, a perfectly ripe tomato and the crunch of bacon that has made the BLT Sandwich a go to recipe in almost […]

Chicken Lo Mein

Need a quick and easy meal with very little clean up? Stir-Fry is the way to go! I have been fixing stir-fry for years now, but had never tried Lo Mein before. Essentially it’s stir-fry with noodles. I first spotted this recipe in a Kraft Food & Family magazine, and was drawn to it with […]
