  • Add peanut butter to chocolate sauce and pour over vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
  • 1 chocolate square = 3-4 Tbsp. cocoa + 1 Tbsp. butter or shortening
  • When going on an outing, keep your baby’s bottle warm by placing it in a wide mouth thermos that has been “warmed” with hot water. Place the lid on it and it will stay perfect until you need it.
  • Try giving your toddler the tablespoon from your measuring spoons to eat with. It has a short handle and a deep bowl which makes it easier for a young child to eat things like soups or cereal.

*Apricot Chicken Recipe

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. oil, olive or vegetable
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. onion soup mix

Cook chicken in garlic and oil until brown. Place in an 8 inch baking dish. Combine everything else and pour over chicken. Bake uncovered at 375° for 25-30 minutes until juices run clear. Serve over rice.


*Garlic Lime Asparagus

1 tsp. butter
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 medium shallot, minced*
1 bunch asparagus spears, trimmed
1/4 lime, squeezed (lemon juice works in a pinch)
Salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet, cook garlic and shallot in butter and oil for 1-2 minutes. Stir in asparagus and cook until tender, about 5-10 minutes. When ready to serve, squeeze lime juice on top. Then add salt and pepper.

*Shallots are small brown onions that are about 1-2 inches around. If you don’t have one then just use a couple of tablespoons of regular onion.


Oreo Peanut Butter No Bake Dessert Recipe


*Oreo Peanut Butter No Bake Dessert Recipe

This dessert is great, especially in the spring and summer. It is quick and easy and won’t heat up the house. It is a rich dessert but I will give you some variations at the end that you can use to modify that. It calls for peanut butter but if you don’t like peanut butter, I’ll also be giving you several variations that don’t include peanut butter.


20 Oreo cookies, crushed
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine

Mix and press into 9×13 pan. You can use store bought crusts of you prefer.


1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 (8 oz.) tub whipped topping

Beat cream cheese, peanut butter and sugar. Fold in whipped topping. Spread on crust. Chill for at least 3 hours. You can freeze, but thaw before serving.


  • You can add less peanut butter if the flavor is overpowering.
  • Add chopped peanuts or walnuts.
  • Drizzle with chocolate ice cream topping.
  • Leave out the peanut butter altogether and add a couple tablespoons of cocoa. Then serve with fresh fruit like strawberries, raspberries or bananas.
  • Add chocolate chips along with the peanut butter.
  • Leave out the peanut butter and just use chocolate chips, sprinkles or crushed candies.
  • Use a graham cracker crust for a less rich dessert.

    instead of apricot preserves which has a lot of sugar you can substitute a large jar of apricot baby food.
    less additives and no sugar.
    flavour is not changed much just a bit healthier and diabetics can enjoy it as well.

    $77/month for 7 people is $ .37/day per person which sounds like it could still qualify as frugal entertainment.

  3. kate says

    for an even faster & easier peanut butter pie recipe, all I have ever done is mix a couple tablespoons of peanut butter into a tub of cool whip and it turns out sweet enough & peanut buttery enough. spread it into a pie crust of choice and freeze – my daughter begs for this sometimes. how simple can you get – 2 ingredients, and I just mix it in the cool whip tub so I don’t dirty up dishes. it is a great alternative.
