I’ll get right to the point. My wife hates fish but she ate these salmon patties that I came up with. I was shocked. I need this recipe immortalized here so I can make it again. They’re low carb too and really cheap to make! Salmon Patties 1 can of salmon, drained 1T chopped parsley …
If you’re a fan of the Food Network show Good Eats, you’ve probably heard Alton Brown say that he only owns one multitasker- a fire extinguisher. Everything else he puts in his kitchen has at least more than one function. I love that philosophy and try to keep my kitchen stocked the same way because I truly believe “less is more” in almost all cases. Today my cast iron skillet does double duty as a baking pan for a low carb meatloaf.
I’m not sure why I think this recipe is French. Maybe it’s the combination of beef and thyme. It could be the silky sauce that results. It could be how simply yet delicious it is. Anyway, this came out really well, so maybe I should rename it Delicious braised short ribs.
I often get a random taste for something that I just can’t shake. This was the case earlier this week when I decided that I HAVE To have spinach-artichoke dip. Of course, I didn’t even have any artichokes and the frugal streak in me wouldn’t let me go to the store and buy the ingredients. If I was going to satisfy this craving, I was going to have to do it with what was in the house.

If you live in or have ever lived in Chicago, you know about an Italian beef sandwichs with giardiniera. When I’m in Chicago I make a point of stopping by Portillo’s or Al’s Beef for an unbelievable sandwich of juicy, flavorful beef covered with olive oil and spicy pickled vegetables. I just had to have something like that for dinner so I came up with this easy and frugal recipe.
