Despite my best efforts, pizza is a huge part of mine and Tucker’s diets. When we first started dating, we would spend an obscene amount of money on frozen and take out pizza. Since moving in together and sharing a shopping list, I refuse to spend $10 on two frozen pizzas. It’s not cost effective by any stretch of the imagination and I’m not willing to pay that much for mediocre pizza I could just make myself. I scourged the Internet looking for simple pizza dough recipes, hoping I would find a cost effective alternative. Today, I’m sharing with you the five-ingredient pizza dough recipe that has us saved a bucket load of cash.
Welcome to a new series centered all around some of my favorite 3-ingredient drinks. Kicking off this series, I will be sharing my recipe for a traditional daiquiri. Since I mostly drink water, coffee and tea during the day, the first few installments of this series will feature recipes for alcoholic beverages. I eventually will include some fruity non-alcoholic beverages for the summertime. Bring your laptop, phone, or tablet on over to your kitchen and let’s get mixing!
Y’all know I am all about making things at home if it (a) tastes better and/or (b) saves me some cash. Lucky for all of us, this post tackles both of those things. I wrote an entire post on various things that I find are worth the effort to make at home and today we’re going to be focusing on vinaigrettes. More than just dressing for lettuce, vinaigrettes can be used in tons of different salads and even as marinades for meat. “Why do I care?” you may be asking yourself. Well, in case you didn’t know, the mark up on vinaigrettes is INSANE. I’ll counter back with a question: why spend dollars on something you can make at home for cents? Boom.
Seriously happy Thursday, y’all. This week has been the most but thankfully it’s almost over. Today, I’m going to be talking about food, sort of. Yesterday, I asked Tucker what to blog about – none of the ideas I have written down were speaking to me. I forget exactly what he said, but something he said made a light bulb in my head go off, so he gets credit for today’s blog post. Now, I don’t know about you, but figuring out what to cook can get old, very quickly. Even though I love Pinterest (seriously, check out my multiple food-related boards), it’s sometimes hard for me to turn pins into real life meals. Enter television. I love the Food Network and could happily watch cooking shows for the rest of my life. I don’t know what it is about watching other people cook, but it’s weirdly therapeutic and inspiring. Here are my favorite cooking shows to watch pretty much all the time, but especially when I’m feeling uninspired by the ingredients in my kitchen.
