  1. Andrea, I'm sharing this blog with all of MBASA (the spouse association at BYU) because most of us are living on very little and you're a genius! So, thanks for the great info, and I love you! -Lacey

    2. I have tried your refried beans recipe and love it. I had a question about your crockpot yogurt recipe. Does it matter if you use lactose milk? I would have to use that kind.

    3. Hi Meesha,
      I am so sorry it's taken me a while to respond to your question. I have never personally made yogurt using lactose-free milk, so I can't tell you for sure... however, there are several recipes/articles online that say that you can. Here is a link to one of the recipes: http://www.livingwithout.com/recipes/Dairy-Free-Homemade-Yogurt-1512-1.html
      I hope that helps! Good luck!

  5. You are such an inspiration I am thinking about starting my own blog but I'm sure how much I have to offer to others. I am a newlywed who is starting the clean eating recipes including things like your bread and tortillas. Thanks for all this helpful information.

  6. Love your site! Just tried Grandma's Country White Bread--FANTASTIC. I did wind up with about 8 cups of flour like some of the other bakers. My 12 year old son ate half the loaf and said it was the best bread he's ever eaten--quite a testimonial! He needs it too ;) Maybe it will put some meat on him--Ha!
    I'm looking forward to trying the refried beans next. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. used the Pinterest button at the top of the page and it gives me the 404 error and says that the page I am looking for is not found... wanted to connect thru there but figured you didn't know it wasn't working. I am going to pinterest search your name and see if I can find it that way... Thank you for all the great tips and recipes...

    1. Huh... I was unaware. Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention, Jacque! I really appreciate it. I go the same error just now when I checked into it. I'll see what I can figure out. Again, thank you so much for letting me know! I hope you enjoy the site!

    2. Okay Jacque, I think I've got it all sorted out. Thank you so much! Let me know if you have any more trouble with it. :)

  8. Hello! Just found your blog today! I cannot wait to try several of your recipes! They all look amazing, affordable, and simple. I was wondering if you would be willing to put together a beginners shopping list, things that you always have on hand, but that someone starting out might not.

    Thank you!

    1. Jessica, I'm happy you found me. :) I love your idea, and will consider doing that in a future post. (This really is a nap-time hobby thing, and I don't spend hours at the computer... so it might take me a while.) Another person asked me to post what I fed my family for an entire month, along with shopping lists, and how much I spent. Maybe I could include a "beginner's shopping list" with that post. Sound good?

    2. Sounds great!Take your time, no rush, I understand completely.

      Hopefully this doesn't sound cheesy, but you are helping a ton of families get back to the basics in the kitchen. I love love love that you explain everything so well and provide step by step pictures. It really is awesome. After reading one of your recipes I don't have to call a friend and ask a bunch of silly-everyone-should-already-know-this questions. I think I'm going to try your bean burritos tomorrow. :)

      Thank you!

    1. I'm so glad you like the site! Also, I checked into the issues you mentioned... there must have been a glitch when you were on, because everything is running smoothly right now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, though! It's much appreciated. Have a great day!

  10. Hi Andrea, I absolutely love your blog and have tried some of your recipes and they are wonderful. Would it be `possible for you to direct me to your chicken pot pie recipe? I love the idea of putting the bisquick type topping on the top. Thank you so much.

    1. Thanks! I'm really glad you've enjoyed it so far. I actually don't have the chicken pot pie recipe posted yet. I really only post once or twice a week, so I still have TONS of recipes to put on here... the pot pie is one of them. :) I'll try to get that one up sooner rather than later, as I've had several requests for it. Maybe in a few weeks... :)

    1. Hi Kate!

      You are so sweet. :) I'm so sorry about the lack of posts lately. We are in the middle of the moving process, and life has just been CRAZY for different reasons. Not bad crazy... just crazy. I actually do have a post in the works, but I can't seem to get the format I want. I may just go ahead and post it anyway. Thank you for checking on me!

      All my best,
      Andrea

  12. My sister found this blog and introduced me to a world of savings and delectability beyond my wildest dreams. This is a very well put together blog and I must say: Job well done. I have literally gone through every single one of your recipes and written them down on note cards because I was out of ink in the printer. Then I saw your post on how to refill ink cartridges and my mind was blown. Thanks for being awesome and feeding your children food that will be beneficial to them. Once again great job. Any tips for my blog? http://www.naturalwinners.blogspot.com

    Thanks! ♥

  15. Have you ever tried making your detergents? I'd be curious to see what the savings is and how well they work. I know some all natural cleaners (homemade too) don't work as well as the usual cleaners I'd buy.

    Here is an example: http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2013/04/make-your-own-dishwasher-detergent-tabs.html

    I would actually think this would work pretty well. Just not sure if it would cost less than Finish powder. I use the smallest amount per load so the box lasts a long time.

    1. Hi Laurie,

      I did try making my own dish detergent once upon a time. It just never worked as well as the store stuff, and my dishes never quite got clean to my liking... so I've been hesitant to try a new recipe. BUT if you try the one above or a different one and find that it works as well as store-stuff, I'd LOVE to know about it. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  16. Hello!
    I'm self-employed and my husband has gone back to school, so income is pretty much feast or famine. I'm really excited about 10 of your recipes here, especially the totally homemade hamburgers (that will hopefully cut down on fast-food binges).

    Thank you!
