What is a CHEAP (but healthy) recipe you know how to make?

Ok so we all know what it’s like to pop our head in our fridge to find 1/4 gallon of milk and a stick of butter left. Only to check back in 30 minutes to make sure nothing else has appeared. 🙂


I do this all the time!! We are going to the store today but there is a challenge….my husband and I are working with a very tight budget and needing to come up with some cheap recipes that are not completely horrible for you.  We are not on a diet but don’t want to live off pasta or frozen foods either!


Do you have any recommendations? I can easily search and find recipes online don’t get me wrong. But it HELPS to know that other people have tried it and not only did it work but they LIKED it ❤

Thanks for help!


Mexican Beef and Bean Casserole

Jenny's Mexican Dish

Ok so this Mexican Beef and Bean Taco Casserole was SO GOOD!!!

I recently made a recipe by Six Sisters stuff that was amazing ! I decided to try another by then which turned out to be a great decision! Would definitely make this again!  I love how colorful and festive it looks 🙂 The only thing different I did was I used a can of chopped tomatoes w/chilis. It gave the dish a kick. If you do not like hot food I would recommend just using a regular tomato.

Beef and Bean Taco Casserole can be found here on Six Sisters page!

Hope you enjoy ❤

Next Weeks Sloppy Joe and Baked Apple Crockpot Recipes

Next week, I plan to make these recipes below ! They both look warm and delicious. I can’t imagine how wonderful a baked apple is going to taste with some vanilla ice cream! Both are made in the crockpot. The baked apple recipe includes instructions though if you would prefer to make in the oven. I may do this so that they both can be cooking at the same time. If you don’t have a crockpot I cannot tell you how much I recommend getting one! It has made life so much easier for me.

Recipe Fail and Do You Have Grocery Saving Tips?

Ok so I just made a recipe off pinterest. It was called “Pumpkin Pie Yogurt” and looked like this:

pumpkin fail

However, it tasted like this:

cat throw up

Does anyone else have this frustration with Pinterest? Don’t get me wrong I love the website and they can’t know which recipes are good and bad on there but damn… thank goodness that recipe did not cost me much money~!  It was bitter…so much so that I tried adding some splenda to it which made it have a weird after taste. Definitely NOT sweet and NOT like pumpkin pie! It went in my FAILED RECIPES folder 😦  Not all the recipes on my page I have tried yet. If you try something and it is not good PLEASE let me know!

Oh and if you like to get a laugh out of ideas that have FAILED check out:

This squiggle drawing below is going for $3o on Etsy!!!! There are 7 in the series….all altered lines that are a bit different than the last. For those interested there is an option to purchase the whole set hahhahahahahahahah

I’m sorry…. if this works muchos props to that person. Seriously im about to get my sharpie and make some designs with little dots and put that shit up ASAP on etsy.

So we went to Walmart, land of the slow and inconsiderate people that like to stop their buggies in the middle of an aisle as they stare off into space or have a conversation.  Anyway, they have the cheapest stuff where I live. My husband and I get enough for two recipes, a few snacks, fruit, OJ…his total is in the $60’s and mind in the $50’s . We try to split the bill up so it’s not so expensive. It’s around $11o for us to eat for one week..for 2 people. Does this seem expensive? How much do YOU spend on groceries a week if you don’t mind me asking? I know people are doing all this stuff with coupons and I will use one here and there but I have certain brands I like..and generally..healthy food coupons do not exist. Or maybe I am just not finding them if they do!?

Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

I made this recipe in the crockpot and it turned out really good!! It’s super easy! I used the light cream cheese. Also, I baked some cornbread to go with it but you could also have it with some brown rice. Just get those boil in a bag 10 min rice and voila!
