Bits of Sweetness: Cooking on a dime (asking for recipes!)

Cooking on a dime (asking for recipes!)

OK, maybe more than a dime :) Ringing in the New Year means good changes (like cooking more). But, I have to admit-I fall short in just coming up with great ideas. And, although sites like Pinterest and other cooking sites are lots of fun to browse, there is nothing better than getting some great recipe recommendations from people I know. What are your favorite things to make (especially on a budget)Any fun new recipes you've tried?

P.s. We don't like seafood. Only thing. Crazy, I know, living in the PNW! Tuna is the extent of it. Maybe someday...! lol. I do love crab though!

So. bring on those suggestions!

Some I am wanting to try:

Chicken Piccatta

Avocado & Grilled Corn Salad with Cilantro Vinaigrette

Chicken Parmesan Bake

Pesto Focaccia Pizza

Homemade Tomato Basil Soup (drooling already!!)

Breakfast Pita

Most of the recipes are from Budget Bytes. Lots of fun, budget-friendly meals and recipes there( look through the archives too!)

But. Don't forget. I want your recipes! This is just a wishful to-make list! Our dinners normally don't look so creative! Comment away!
