Pizza puffs! Tried these; they're terrific...only thing is, they're impossible to get out of the muffin cups, though I used Pam spray. I think maybe they would be less stressful cooked in a pie pan or casserole dish and cut in pieces. The texture and flavor are perfect.
I make these every winter. This winter I made about 30 of them. Great to have ready as gifts for everyone, well-received because people know they taste good. I've seen them sold online for 17 dollars a jar, too! They probably only cost maybe 1.50-2.00 to make.
Carrot Cake Jam. So far everyone who's tried it loves it. Great on bagels and cream cheese. I love that I don't have to go picking a bunch of stuff and come in and hurry to process it; it's carrots, apples, canned pineapple, sugar, spices, pectin...any time of the year you might have all these things on hand.
Roast Sticky Chicken from allrecipes.com. I take the spices this recipe recommends x4, fill a little jar and keep it to quickly cover the chickens. The onion is optional. If you cook up the bones etc. from this, it makes the BEST broth (which you can freeze)! I often roast 2 at a time, then take the meat off, freeze it into bags and use it for quick recipes.
More with Less Cookbook...ours looks about like this one...has recipes from missionaries who've lived all over the world. So there are international recipes; alternatives to typical American ingredients; very from-scratch cooking; very frugal ideas. A very healthy cookbook!
