Choosing cheaper cuts of meat is one of the most basic ways to save money on groceries. A long time ago I began to buy boneless, skinless chicken thighs more than chicken breasts, mostly because the flavor is better, but thighs are also cheaper than breasts!

Even better, this recipe for crispy roasted chicken thighs is a family favorite! One of my favorite bloggers/podcasters to follow is the Lazy Genius, who has a
You may see shrimp in the title of the recipe and think, 'Seafood isn't very frugal!' It's definitely more expensive per pound than most meat, but we still see deals. For us this recipe was born out of a desire to eat what we had on hand at the end of the month (we've all been there). I decided to see what I could do with shrimp that was in the freezer, and stretch it to feed the whole family. And so our Sausage Shrimp Skillet was born! I served this with what my kids call 'garlic cheese toast,' which

Honey and Garlic Chicken Stir Fry with Cauliflower Egg Fried Rice. That Chinese take-away might be tempting, but this chicken stir-fry with cauliflower egg fried rice is just as tasty, and so much better for you!
Shakshuka is actually a recipe that is traditionally made with spicy and chunky tomato sauce. It’s a North African-based dish that has a lot of flavor and is sure to impress. (There is a recipe for the traditional version in the new Paleo Grubs cookbook.) This recipe, on the other hand, adds a...
I grew up in the Midwest so that means I grew up eating casseroles. Casseroles are traditionally one-pot meals: meat, vegetables, and starches, baked all together. And what holds all that stuff together is usually the starch – noodles or mashed potatoes are probably the most common. Casseroles...
