These are some of our favorites, both new and old. Many are adapted from old family recipes, and quite a few adapted from my favorite chefs, magazines or cookbooks. I’ve taken some liberties in an attempt to be frugal, and healthy, while staying true to the original spirit of the recipe. You’ll see quite a few dishes here have been adapted to stay at or under the $5.00 mark in collaboration with Bargain Meal of the Week at $5.00 Dinner Mom’s site. Of course, sometimes you just have to splurge…you’ll see a few of those recipes, too.
