We enjoyed this wonderful cake after our lunch last Sunday. The easy recipe is from Taste of Home. I did make two adjustments. I put the Heath bars in the food processor to make fine crumbs.

Frugal. Delicious. Will feed a crowd. But most of all – easy. These muffins are so simple to make and have such wide appeal, they’ve easily become a go-to recipe in our home. You’ve likely seen the chocolate version. But what about the spice cake version? I was surprised at how many my teenagers gobbled up! I’m sharing the recipe variations at $5 Dinners. Click

Truly the easiest way I have found to feed my family of seven is to put the slow cooker to work for me. Whether I am out for the day or busy with homeschooling our age range, I can serve up slow cooker deliciosity. My slow cooker history will prove my love. My regular Saturday series, Fast Food for Slow Sundays is celebrated along with
Few things in my stretching-the-budget and filling-tummies career have made as big a difference as biscuits. Do you remember how much the canned variety costs? Oh, I dearly love the convenience. But I don’t like paying for it. Especially when I have to get so many cans to feed the seven of us. And that’s where batch cooking homemade biscuits comes in. But here’s the
