I have an Artisan recipe I want to try, just haven’t gotten around to it yet. It rises for like 18 hours, so I have to plan it in advance. lol
I always add a teaspoon (or a cube) of beef bouillon to swiss steak and omit additional salt.
There is some leftover in our fridge now! We were trying to figure out what to do with it, now we know!
I really don’t pick up much food at the $1 store here, but we have a restaurant supply store, a Winco, and a Grocery Outlet where I find some great deals. I also watch the weekly ads at the regular grocery stores for their loss leader items. The tortillas were one of these loss leader items and I can often get them for free by using my double coupons on them.
One thing our dollar store does have that we love to get for a special treat are some Key lime cookies (similar to a Mexican Wedding cake cookie or a Walnut crescent cookie, but with a Key lime flavor). They are really good!
A dollar store cookbook is a great idea! I have been typing up some of my menus and recipes as well as budget saving ideas, and want to set up a blog sometime soon, as I am sure there are lots of other people out there that could benefit from some budget friendly meals.
That’s the one I read at the library. I found their blog online and bought the book at Amazon. Great bread!
Try the boule at the link in post 58. Very easy to make and quite good bread.
I will have to try it. I bake all the bread we eat. Nothing special just regular everyday homemade bread. Great for french toast!
In another issue ME News had a recipe for bread baked in a cast iron dutch oven. It looked interesting too. I ought to see if I can find that recipe online.
LOL I hope I don’t lose my conservative bona fides by admitting I sometimes read ME News at the library.
Here’s the link to the other bread I mentioned.
Easy No Knead Dutch Oven Crusty Bread

LOL Those gardeners intimidate me. I just lurk there.
In microwaveable coffee cup:
2 Tablespoons milk
Coat mug w/cooking spray, add eggs and milk- beat
Microwave High 45 seconds- stir.
Microwave until eggs are almost set (30 seconds) or what you think.
Top with grated cheese, mix.
Our second choice in extender is quick cooking oats. I learned that one from Mother Magslinger. Beside cookies it was the only way she could get me to eat oats.
BTW we never use it for stuffing. Perfect for meatloaf it doen’t make really good stuffing in a bird.
I need to try that. Might use a microwavable bowl to make sure it doesn’t spill over.
250Ml = 1 cup
It may cook up over the rim like a souffle but I've not seen it spill over.
I usually make a large batch ad do it in the oven, but sometimes I want it now! lol So this will work for a quick fix. :)
I tried this no Kneed bread once. Found the recipe in an online NYT article. It was a big failure for me. The bread was totally stuck in the pot I used. Had to remove it in pieces with a large spoon. It could have been because I used a heavy duty aluminum pot instead of a cast iron dutch oven which I don’t have, mater of fact I don’t have that aluminum pot any more either - threw it out with bread still scorched and stuck in it.
