I am obsessed with the spoonula, aren’t you?  I mean it is perfect.  Slender, heat resistant up to 400′, a great stirrer/scraper non scratching too.

For this past Christmas, I got three more!  These ones are great- they came in different sizes and a super fun orange color.  I know there are people out there that are just as satisfied using a spatula, but open your eyes people!

Hasn’t just about everyone licked the rest of the brownie batter once in your life?  The spoonula is the perfect tool to help you do so.  Not only does it scrape the batter off the bowl, but the slightly con-caved center gives the mixture the perfect holding spot. If you do not have on of these in your kitchens, go our and get one now!

They are available at most stores.  You can check out the ones I got at Amazon.

Let me know how it has changed you life in the comments section.

Super Bowl Snacks

27 Jan 2009 In: Let's Share

I do have to admit that every now and then I do enjoy a good football game. Having friends over to watch the game gives me a great excuse to try something new in the kitchen. After all, they are friends and will eat anything I make.

Last year, I tried something new, tortilla soup. It was pretty good as I recall. The broth was light and had a nice hint of spice, the vegetables like corn and green peppers had a nice bite to them, and the homemade tortilla chips for on top were the perfect ending.

With the Super Bowl coming up again this year, it leaves me wondering what to do. Do you go hearty with chunky chili and rolls, light with veggies and dips, or sweet with mini cheesecake bites and cookies? The decisions are so hard! What will you be doing this year?

Budget Friendly Cooking Explained

23 Jan 2009 In: News

For those of you who have ever ventured and created their own blog, these are some of the very first words you see. It is kind of scary thinking and secretly hoping that the whole world will see this.  But alas, here I am anyway.  Hello World, my name is Katie, it is very nice to meet you!

I am so excited and nervous about this website.  I love to be in the kitchen creating meals and ideas for the everyday chef, just like myself.  I hope this site becomes a great resource for many of you.  My plan- to post several times a week, to create a weekly menu, and once a week, I will get behind the camera and show you how it is done- all on a budget of course!

Creating basic, delicious, budget-friendly meals seems to be  struggle for so many of us out there.  I am hoping to make that a little easier for you. So come along with me and lets get cookin’!
