One gallon of milk will yield about 1 pound of cheese. (I paid $2.39 for the milk, so 1 pound of fresh mozzarella was less than $2.50). Homemade Mozzarella Cheese is one of the easiest cheeses to make, it only takes 30 minutes and the taste can't be beat!
Crockpot Refried Beans using dry bagged pinto beans. No pre-soaking necessary. So easy, so healthy, so frugal, and delicious! Costs almost 75% less than buying the canned refried beans. Non-fat, lower-sodium., soaking is ez, soaking is good :)
