9 Ways To DIY Fast Food To Save Money On Everyday Convenience Foods- The Grocery Game Challenge #4 Aug 24-30, 2015

CREATE YOUR OWN FOOD TO EAT   Life is always a balance between time and money. When we feel pressed for time, it’s easy to spend more money than we realize on fast food and convenience products. This can be true especially when there’s a whole industry based on making us believe that these foods will transform our lives There are instances when convenience is worth the price in terms of time and money.

These regularly go on sale for $3.99 and with the price of cheese and toppings it can be hard to beat that cost with homemade pizza.

What I did was I took my chocolate chip cookie and fudgy brownie recipe and created this cookie dough brownie recipe. I’m forever making homemade cookies and testing out new homemade brownie recipes so I figured I could combine the two to make this bar recipe. Why enjoy a regular brownie when you can jazz it up? Don’t get me wrong, I stand by the Classic Fudge Brownie. You only have to look at my Pinterest page […]
