If you are looking for a cookbook with personality, then this is the one for you. I loved Elizabeth Fisher’s stories spaced throughout the book.

The recipes were very easy to make. They all used ingredients that you more then likely already have in your pantry. If they aren’t in your pantry, you can likely catch them for real cheap on sale or using coupons.

I know one of the things that happened to us was that we got stuck in a food rut. Since money has been tight, we seem to eat almost the same

I found this cookbook rather entertaining with all the personal anecdotes interspersed between the recipes. There were some yummy recipes that I would like to try like the Butterfinger Brownies.

Also used a great deal were refrigerated biscuits and biscuit mix. Canned foods as well. One thing I did find a little ...more

This book has a surprising number of recipes that can be made with ingredients costing a dollar or less. I'm not sure how many of these items *I* could actually find at my local dollar store, and some items only come on sale (i.e. a 10 for $10 sale) very rarely, but that doesn't stop the usefulness of the book. Lots of things in here aren't "authentic" or perhaps the healthiest versions of meals, but if you're saving every penny, this book will show you ways to use those inexpensive items you fi ...more
