Frozen Pumpkin Pie Frozen Pumpkin Pie By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/20/12 18:48 This pie is the reason my pumpkinpalooza fell flat on its face. My “keep it simple, don’t change anything” husband rebelled at the thought of frozen pumpkin pie. I should have called it something else like “frozen autumn pie” or maybe “it’s too hot to cook...
Cookbook Review: Kosher By Design Cooking Coach Cookbook Review: Kosher By Design Cooking Coach By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/19/12 13:52 This week, I had the opportunity to review another new cookbook, Kosher by Design: Cooking Coach: recipes, tips and techniques to make anyone a better cook. Susie Fishbein has written a series of cookbooks called Kosher by Design. In the collection of books...
Sweetened Condensed Milk Pumpkin Pie Sweetened Condensed Milk Pumpkin Pie By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/17/12 16:06 I had such plans. Way back in June, I made a list of over 16 different pumpkin pies that I wanted to try. I was going to devote all of November to Pumpkin Pie. It was going to be so great. But Life and my Husband got in the way. I am not even blaming [...]
Sweet Potato Dessert Tamales Sweet Potato Dessert Tamales By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/15/12 15:00 Sweet Potato Tamales. Is that weird? Well, maybe it is a little. However, they were really good, especially with a drizzle of honey over them. This month’s Improv Challenge ingredients were Sweet Potatoes and Honey. I usually eat my sweet potatoes roasted,...
Key Lime Cheesecake Parfait Key Lime Cheesecake Parfait By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/12/12 14:47 Key lime pie, key lime fudge, key lime cupcakes. Will the world every have enough key lime recipes? I. Do. Not. Think. So! When my son celebrated his 16th birthday in October and asked for a key lime dessert instead of a cake, I opted for individual Key...
Mint Hot Chocolate Mix: An Easy Christmas Gift Mint Hot Chocolate Mix: An Easy Christmas Gift By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/07/12 06:07 One of my standby gifts to make (probably every 2 or 3 years) is Mint Hot Chocolate Mix. I rename it every so often just like any manufacturer to make it seem new (i.e. Mint Truffle Cocoa, Candy Cane Chocolate etc). I usually put 2 cups of mix in a quart...
Cookbook Review: Recipes to Remember Cookbook Review: Recipes to Remember By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/05/12 12:27 Alzheimer’s disease first touched my family when my dad’s mom was diagnosed in the early 1990s. My second son was born on her birthday, but she never knew him or of him. A decade later, my mom’s dad died of the same cruel disease. His mind was gone long...
Slab Apple Pie Slab Apple Pie By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/02/12 15:12 A long time ago, like at least 15 years, I saw a photo of a pie baked in a sheet cake pan. Being somewhat of a pie snob, I scoffed at such a dish, thinking it was a travesty to the circular, traditional pies that offered a good piece of crust to everyone....
Italian Crock Pot Roast Beef Italian Crock Pot Roast Beef By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 11/01/12 16:50 As I post photos of our dinners, I have come to realize that it appears that we eat a lot of green beans. And yet, we don’t really; we eat broccoli, cauliflower, corn, beets, squash, carrots and salads, too. It’s just that when I plan a main dish for the...
A Really Good Skinny Fruit Dip A Really Good Skinny Fruit Dip By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/30/12 05:58 In the days when I had no kids, I spent my spare time making crafts. I sewed, glued and painted all of the time. I even had a saw to cut out wood. All of that time spent making things produced oodles and oodles of decorations for every holiday. I had Rubbermaid...
Review: Lifesize Weight Loss System Review: Lifesize Weight Loss System By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/29/12 18:26 I cannot tell you how many times I have been on a weight loss mission. At least every other New Year’s and summer I begin to think about losing that pesky 15 pounds that refuses to leave. You know exactly what I mean, don’t you? If we aren’t watching fat,...
Homemade Wassail Mix Homemade Wassail Mix By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/27/12 06:40 We were given a can of Stephen’s Citrus and Spice Wassail mix for Christmas one year. All four of my boys adored the stuff. Every time I turned around, one of them was asking if they could have a cup of it. Needless to say, it didn’t last very long. Now,...
Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/25/12 18:05 I suppose these could be called tenders or fingers instead of nuggets. Having four teenage boys tends to increase the size of all food in my house. So call it what you will, these are a great gluten free alternative to store bought or even my other homemade...
Shoo-Fly Tarts Shoo-Fly Tarts By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/23/12 13:40 My mom, like many creative cooks and bakers will try anything once. What our family learned, though, was that even if something sounds good on paper, it may not be in reality. Take, for instance, her attempt at Shoo-fly pie. I still remember it like it...
Cookbook Review: The Kosher Baker Cookbook Review: The Kosher Baker By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/22/12 06:07 My first paid baking gig was for a Jewish temple in the Seattle area in the early 1990s. I baked 40 dozen cookies each week for them. Obviously, they were not a rigid group, because I am not Jewish and I don’t keep a Kosher kitchen. However, I was very...
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/18/12 15:00 Ah oatmeal. It was one of my favorite cold weather breakfasts. My sons only care for the instant type. My daughter would rather be drawn and quartered than be made to eat it any form for breakfast. My husband likes it plain with lots of butter and brown...
Italian Meatballs in the Crock Pot Italian Meatballs in the Crock Pot By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/17/12 06:21 Meatballs are surprisingly tricky little guys to make. They fall apart in the pan all of the time. Am I the only one who has that trouble? I will go to make them in a skillet and then end up with something that resembles crumbled meatloaf. It could be because...
Barbecue Ranch Chef Salad Barbecue Ranch Chef Salad By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/15/12 12:46 Last week was all sweet, so I thought I would throw in a few savory dishes before this Thursday’s Oatmeal Raisin Improv which is sure to be filled with some more sweetness. This is another recipe inspired by my Southern Living books. My whole family is...
Oatmeal Scotchie Pie Oatmeal Scotchie Pie By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/12/12 16:05 My poor family. Seriously. My second son turned sixteen recently. He asked if I’d make him a key lime pie. He ended up with a key lime cheesecake parfait (recipe to come soon). This time, my husband asked me to make “those butterscotch cookies with oatmeal.”...
Banana Cobbler Banana Cobbler By Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker 10/10/12 12:51 Since moving to Florida last year, I have been on a quest to acquire every Southern Living annual that I can get my hot little hands on. I have found them all over the place from an abandoned garage to library sales to thrift stores. I keep a little notebook...
