Frugal Friday! Cooking from Scratch!

I wanted to post today about frugal cooking!

Several years ago my wonderful husband found this great website called Hillbilly Housewife. On this site there are many wonderful recipes that you make all from scratch!

My daughter and I have made many of them.

We have made homemade pancake syrup, homemade chocolate syrup for some yummy chocolate milk.

There are recipes for pancakes and muffins too. There is so many recipes that I could not possibly name them all here.

It has been fun making the many different recipes from scratch and paying pennies for these items.

With a large family we go through a lot! So it is great to be able to make your own and not have to pay the higher store prices. Not to mention the fact that you also know what you are putting into your recipe.

Now I cannot say that I always make these items every week, but when things are really tight or I just do not have the item on hand it is wonderful to know that I can just go to this great site and find a recipe to use to make what I need.

There are many convenience food recipes as well.

Last night my daughter made this favorite bread for supper. It is great because it does not need any kneading and not much time for rising. It is called Quick yeast bread.

It really is very easy and so delicious so why not give it a try and check out this great web site Hillybilly Housewife !

God Bless, and have a great Week! Kathy

I haven't cooked all week. I should check out that site for something creative for dinner tonight.

I've been a Hillbilly Housewife fan for years! It's a great site to scour when you've got that "Mother Hubbard" thing going on in your cupboard. I did a lot of expirimenting with her yogurt-making techniques and recipes this summer. We had lots of smoothies as a result.
