How to Make Easy Dinner Menu Ideas Budget Recipes Work for You

With prices of everything on the rise, many are trying to find ways to stretch their paycheck. Cooking at home and shopping smart are just a couple of ways to save money.

The recipes I’ve included this week are made with convenience foods and lesser expensive ingredients. Some recipes, like the banana nut muffins, use up bananas that are hanging out on your counter.

The baked ziti makes enough for a family of 4 to 6 or for you to stretch to another meal. 

One of my favorite ways to save money is by making copy cat recipes at home. Have a look around the site for Olive Garden’s salad dressing and the Columbia Restaurants 1905 Salad.

Save more money by making those yummy gourmet coffees at home. My caramel coffee is in the list below but I have a couple of fun lattes, including a spiked one, on the blog.

Check out previous menu ideas to mix and match. And like all my other menu plans I’ve included recipes from my blogger friends Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks and A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures.
