What's Cookin'?

We're blessed to be living from the stockpile in the pantry. (I'm so very thankful for coupons – and stores that match their sales to current coupons!) But there's still nothing like the aroma of fresh-baked bread, filling the house and greeting my Dearest as he walks in after a long day at work – especially on a gray and rainy winter day!

And I tried out a new recipe yesterday: Banana Split Bread! I was so excited to be using ingredients that were mostly the result of recent couponing and bargain-hunting:

Frugalista Ideas:
  • If you bake Christmas goodies as gifts for family and friends, this new twist on an old favorite could be a more economical variation on the traditional fruitcakes.
  • Add some water to the "juice" drained from the pineapple bits and maraschino cherries, and enjoy a very refreshing bargain beverage!
Stay tuned for pumpkin recipes! We were recently given two huge pumpkins, so I'll also be making pumpkin puree – and then making and baking a bunch of pumpkin recipes, as well as freezing some puree for later use.
