(updated 3/5/17) My husband has found a new way to save us more money and time. He has been using our freezer to make our cooking very efficient and allow us to have meals we couldn't afford otherwise (like boneless breast recipes). Let’s start with chicken. When we get chicken for Shabbos, we do not... Continue Reading →
I have gotten a few requests for the actual recipes that I mentioned in my post earlier this week on "Don't buy it, make it homemade - Part 3."

We love cookbooks and actually have too many. Many of our cookbooks are year-round kosher ones, some of which have Pesach recipes in them. But how do you use a "chometz" cookbook for Pesach? I undertook a project to solve this problem several years ago. I created a Pesach recipes binder. 1) Gather: I looked at all of... Continue Reading →
