Delicious Left-Overs Quiche

left-over quiche

Guest post from Laura of Life as a Loewen

Any frugal-minded mama will tell you: it’s all about using what you have on-hand.

Finding creative ways to use what’s already in your fridge and pantry will save you a ton of money {and time}!

This quiche recipe combines two of my favorite things: pinching pennies and amazing-tasting food. It’s thick and hearty, and can be served for breakfast, brunch or dinner.

For breakfast or brunch, try bacon and Swiss cheese served with fresh, seasonal fruit.

For dinner, try ground lamb or beef with feta served with a salad and fresh bread.

The ideas are truly endless, just include what your family loves and what’s in the fridge!

Below is what we used the other day, and my entire family {husband and kids aged 5, 3, and 1} gobbled it up.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can put in whatever you have on hand. Depending upon which ingredients you chose and time of day you serve it, you can really have a entirely new meal from one great baseline recipe!

How to Make 10 Freezer Meals in One Hour—Part 2

10-Meals-in-an-Hour-2-Square-Graphic-1024x1024

Ruth at Living Well, Spending Less has written a sequel to her great post on How to Make 10 Freezer Meals in One Hour:

I am excited to share this no-bake version of 10 Meals in an Hour, which includes five awesome warm weather recipes that are cooked either on the grill or in the crockpot—no oven required!  (Of course, if you would rather use the oven than the grill, that is always an option—you can generally just bake your chicken covered at 400 degrees for 25 minutes to get the same results!)

In order to make the cut this time, each recipe had to meet ALL of the following criteria: 

  • Deemed delicious by both my kids and husband
  • No pre-cooking required
  • Freezer friendly
  • Easy to cook
  • Uses budget-friendly ingredients and pantry staples
  • No oven required on cooking day

In this one post you will find everything you need to prep 10 awesome freezer meals in about an hour of hands-on time (not including grocery shopping.)

Quick & Easy Fried Rice

Guest post from Aliesha of Feathers in Our Nest

Restaurant-style fried rice is easy to make at home! It’s a frugal recipe to serve for lunch (or alongside some homemade Asian food) and it is great for incorporating sale produce or using up veggies in your fridge that are about to go bad.

This recipe is very flexible – just use what you have on hand and adapt it to your family’s taste preferences. We like to make it using leftover rice from another meal, but you can definitely cook rice specifically for this recipe.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Guest post from Laura of Life As A Loewen

I love the way blueberry muffins can be eaten for breakfast, snack, or even dessert! This recipe is super-simple, (practically) fool-proof, and makes you the “muffin hero” in less than a half-an-hour!

Even more, I love that this recipe is fairly healthy, using intentional ingredients to make a more nutritious muffin. It’s a great recipe to make when blueberries are on sale!

Try this recipe today and feel free to use your own variations to suit your family’s needs. Either way, these will be a big hit and probably a new staple in your home!
