I am not a cook, actually far from it, but with that being said I am trying to learn. With a family of family it is becoming a huge task to try to find tips and meals that we can afford. The Frugal Foodie Cookbook By Lara Starr with Lynette Shirk offers simple solutions for everyday tasks in the kitchen such as Steaming your Own Milk, Processor Pointers, making your own cleaning solutions and so much more. I have learned how to cook some really great meals on a low budget. We not only have enjoyed many of these meals but when their is leftovers for lunch the next day Daddy is a happy camper. He don't have to pack a lunch he can just take leftovers. Some of the new recipes that have become huge hits in the Kostiuk Home are Teriyaki Chicken Skewers, Sweet-and-Sour Glazed Meatloaf, Gingerbread Cupcakes. These are just to name a few. I have to say so far the Sweet-and-Sour Glazed Meatloaf is now a favorite. Every one of us loved it and went back for seconds. Very odd in this family for everyone to love something lol.
