5 Days of Frugal Eating Desserts


When your budget is super tight, like mine has been often over the last few years, getting supper on the table is a challenge in itself.  It's tempting to overlook the extras like dessert.  During times of financial strain, the special things like a little something sweet at the end of the day are all the more inviting.  Sometimes a little dessert just makes everything seem a little less bleak and a little more doable.  Shallow?  Maybe.  Effective?  I think so.

Go through your cookbooks.  Look for recipes that use only ingredients you usually have on hand.  That way you can have your sweet treat without spending extra money.  Here are some ideas:

Homemade Cocoa
No Bake Cookies
Oatmeal Cookies
Raisin Bread Pudding
Sugar Cookies

With a little searching and baking, you can keep your family happy.

... pray
... do with whatcha got
... be thankful and content
... you can do this!

Happy at Home
