A few weeks ago I was able to pick up a ham & 3 boxes of rice at Albertsons for $1.97.  My plan was to carefully hide the ham in the back of the fridge until Christmas and cook it then.  My plan worked, the HH never found the ham, most likely because I hid it so well and also it was not at eye level nor did it have Doritos written across the front of it.  Had that have been the case, things would not have worked out so well.

When I tell people I only spend one hundred dollars a month on groceries for my family, they instantly assume we live off Top Ramen and cereal. But the truth is, we eat the same foods as everyone else.  We just pay less for it. (more…)

I discovered this amazingly simple crepe recipe from my blogging friend MamaJJ about 2 years ago. These crepes are light, airy and when filled with fruit and whip cream, very filling.

Every time we eat JJ’s crepes the HH says “You should make these with spinach and cheese.”  Every.Single.Time.  And Every.Single. Time. I give an approving nod… and say “Maybe next time.”

Are you kidding me?  I don’t want spinach and cheese… I want sugar and fruit thank you very much.  If I want savory crepes I’ll go to a Sunday brunch at a restaurant. I think crepes should be sweet.  Not savory.  What do you think?


6 Eggs
1 heaping cup of all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk {I use 2%}
Pinch of salt


In an overpriced blender, mix eggs first, then add flour, salt and milk.  Blend well.  Plug the crepe maker in to let it heat up, spread a thin layer of batter across the top by dipping the surface of the crepe maker into a shallow pie dish of batter.  Watch for indicator light to go off.  Stuff crepes with whip cream and  fresh fruit.  Top with syrup, powered sugar and a little more whip  cream.   Yummalish!
