If you love desserts, like I do, you’ll definitely want to take a look at these amazing recipes.

Molasses Cookies

Molasses Cookies is actually a recipe I make year round because it is one of the boys’ favourites and it keeps well in a sealed container on the counter. It is very similar to a gingersnap cookie, but soft and chewy (if stored in an air tight container on the counter).

The Smoking Gun by Breville Tasty Recipes

Breville’s The Smoking Gun
Infuse Foods, Drinks & More with Natural Smokey Flavors

Breville Smoking Gun

In my home, we love food that is smoked, especially meats and sauces. They have that added punch of flavor that we so often crave. For so long, I have wanted a way to smoke my own food in my home with a product that would allow me to add as little or as much smoke infused flavor as I wished and especially one that wouldn’t break the bank. The Smoking Gun by Breville is the answer that I’ve been looking for. It’s so easy to use too! See my original Recipes Inside!

When I made my One-Pot Lazy Cabbage Roll Casserole, I ended up with double the amount of food as I was expecting. I knew that there was no point in freezing the leftovers for a future meal as frozen leftovers rarely get eaten in my house so I decided to use up the leftovers creatively and make stuffed peppers. What I thought was a budget dinner (the complete Cabbage Roll Casserole meal came in under $13) turned into a double duty meal. For both days, the total spend on ingredients was around $18, and there were even some leftovers for lunch on day three.

I tend to cook most of our meals on a budget, and I try to stretch that budget as much as possible, including very inexpensive meals often so that we can also include no so inexpensive meals like lasagna or steak.
