Eat Well, Spend Less with Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks

Looking for healthy recipes that won’t break the budget? Try out these healthy snacks ideas for the new school year. Our family is not yet ready to go “back” to school. Well, I’m not.

Really Homemade Seven Layer Dip (URS: Appetizers)

Thanksgiving is coming! A peek at the grocery fliers tells me it’s true. I love Thanksgiving. It just might be my favorite holiday. Remember, I’m just here for the food. Last year I caused quite a stir with some of you when I suggested omitting the turkey from our Thanksgiving celebration. Well, I’ve been musing […]

Avocado Salsa (Ultimate Recipe Swap: Anything Goes)

In my neck of the woods avocados have been on killer sales recently for as low as 3/$1. That’s a stock-upportunity for sure. I don’t know about the scientific evidence, but I consider avocados a superfood. Super-good! Love that smooth, buttery texture, especially when prepped with cilantro, jalapeno, and a little tomato. Yumbo! FishPapa, however, is […]
