M. L. Gardner is the bestselling author of the 1929 series. Gardner is frugal to a fault, preserving the old ways of living by canning, cooking from scratch, and woodworking. Nostalgic stories from her grandmother’s life during the Great Depression inspired Gardner to write the 1929 series—as well as her own research into the Roarin’ Twenties. She has authored eight books, two novellas, and one book of short stories. Gardner is married with three kids and three cats. She resides in northern Utah. www.mlgardnerbooks.com

Frugal Eating: Two Types of Make-Ahead Burritos || MLGardnerBooks.com









I have yet to master homemade tortillas so this recipe uses store bought. I catch them on sale or buy a large pack at Costco.

This is extremely versatile so I'll just show you how I do it and you can make them to your family's tastes. The whole point of making these is to eliminate a store bought convenience food. Last I checked, bean and cheese burrito packs were upwards of 3.50 for twelve smal...
