    Hi Kimi!
    This chicken salad can be quite frugal when you make your own buns and your own yummy dressing. It’s even tastier if you toast the buns with some butter before assembling…I should add that tip to my post!

    I am sharing a grass fed hot dog with veggies and a banana avocado green smoothie recipe!

    Yes, I discovered an awesome company that sells 100% grass fed hot dogs. It is beef with spices – nothing else. Find out who it is in my post!

    I linked up a post with a recipe for Cherry Upside-Down Cake and a tip on using baking soda to reduce the amount of sugar used in baked goods with fruit. It can be a surprising and frugal way of baking with acidic fruits. 🙂

    Hi! I just posted the link to our websites recipe page. We grow portabella, shiitake, oyster, and button mushrooms organically and have a couple of gardens that we organically grow heirloom produce in.
    I have a variety of vegan, gluten free, and regular recipes posted. All incorporate foods you can readily find at the farmers market or even in your garden! Enjoy!
