With more than 120 recipes, The Thrifty Cookbook will help your money go further, get ahead with the week's cooking, and make the most of every last scrap in your refridgerator. Use some overripe tomatoes and stale bread to make a delicious Tuscan Tomato and Bread salad from the Salads, & Snacks chapter. Breads & Accompaniments like homemade Hoummous will put an end to expensive storebought snacks. Soups like Split Pea and Sausage are perfect for using up leftovers and raiding the pantry for those long-forgotten spices and cans of beans. Buy cheaper cuts of meat and turn them into mouthwatering Stovetop Wonders & Stews to feed a crowd. Pasta, Rice, & Grains cater for every occasion: make a large batch of Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce and stash the bulk in the freezer for a rainy day. When you're feeding a crowd, Oven Bakes, Pies, & Roasts provide fuss-free mains that ensure you get the maximum flavor and value out of a handful of key ingredients. Finally, use up a glut of apples from your garden to make a warming Windfall Apple Pie from the Desserts chapter. The Thrifty Cookbook has all the inspiration you need to feed the family good food even when you've had to tighten the household purse strings.
