5 Low-Cost Tasty Recipes You Should TRY At Home : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #4 Jan 22-28

GROCERY BUDGET SAVINGS INCLUDES EXPERIMENTING WITH RECIPES THAT MAKE LIFE A LITTLE LESS HECTIC IN THE KITCHEN   I don’t know about you but when I cook a meal the first thing I consider are the ingredients I have on hand and how I can make tasty recipes with them. For us this means less time in the kitchen, homemade and lowered costs depending on the product. These days meal planning is a big part of our grocery budget challenge in the CBB house but even then it gets tough when unexpected events get in the way. I’m one of those types of people who say if I haven’t tried to do something then I don’t know if I will be good at it or not. The same rings true in our kitchen. Just because a product sells for a buck doesn’t mean I should be forever faithful to buying it. For all you know you can make it for less money using healthier ingredients and no preservatives. I often like to try and make recipes myself for a few reasons; Cut costs Because I can and maybe I should I want to learn about the food I eat Trying […]

Easy juicy meat buns

BATCH COOKING FOR EASY MEALS MADE SIMPLE   If you haven’t tried meat buns yet and you love hamburgers you must give these little packages of love a try. Last week I made those lovely steak bakes for you and this week something a wee bit different. Meat buns are a no fuss put together meal that can be made the night before or frozen for another day for a quick on the run meal. I’m always looking for easy meat recipes so family doesn’t have to have the same meals over and over again. What I like about these meat buns are that they are unique. The Japanese have something similar with their Japanese meat buns although I believe they are steamed buns. I’ve never had them before but I would like to one day. They are comparable to what a Cornish pasty is in the UK. If you haven’t had a Cornish pasty before you must try one. My friend over at Farmgirl Fare has an amazing recipe for Cornish pasties which are traditional and created by the one and only popular British Chef Jamie Oliver. I make my own as well and I’ll share that recipe with […]

Money and Finance: Why I Care About Financial Literacy

Money and Finance are two very important life topics that encompass “financial literacy” yet many people are unable to take control of what it means to them. I hear stories about those that are struggling to get to the end of the month before they run out of cash to pay the bills and others that realize that learning about money is the only way to go. April is Financial Literacy Awareness month and learning money management skills and how to budget money is only the beginning. There are a host of financial literacy topics that are available to those wanting to find ways to save money as adults and teaching youth financial literacy to their children all over the internet. There is no shame in not knowing but wanting to learn, there is no shame about why you are in debt, there is no shame in what others think of you. Find the strength to enjoy the small things and work towards a brighter future by taking the initiative to build your knowledge of what you desire in life. There are so many people who wonder if they will ever know “how to learn to save money” but don’t know where to […]
