Friday Finds

Frugal Tips is on vacation this week as I have been busy creating a post on links to Help for New Bloggers which I will post on Sunday.  In the meantime, here are what I consider some great finds this week.

Creating Nirvana

Just what it says, great tips for making homemade broth, whether chicken, meat, or vegetable.

Thistle Byre Farm

Same author, different web site.  I am so going to make this.  I have always wondered about making pork broth but was too lazy to pursue the idea myself.

Mel's Kitchen Cafe

Mouthwatering is all I can say.  Maybe I could save the bones from these to make the pork broth above.

Eat at Home

Plain, unassuming little gems holding a Nutella surprise.  The only thing that might make them better is a little dollop of peanut butter on top of that Nutella.  Tiffany and I agree that these are really "muffcakes" being one of those muffins that is a cross between a muffin and a cupcake.

From Apples to Zucchini

I love watermelon but don't eat it all that much.  Since there are just two of us, it is hard to go through a whole watermelon; and I am frugal (too cheap) when it comes to buying already cut ones.  She also has done watermelon muffins which are a little further down on her blog. I think both of these would be a lot of fun to make.

Jam Hands

Hey, not too early to be thinking about Christmas gifts.  Wouldn't these look pretty on a candy/cookie plate.  She shares variations for caramel and orange flavors, too.  I'll bet that you could use just about any extract you could get your hands on--coconut, black walnut?  Definitely going on that Christmas food gift list.

 Kevin and Amanada

OK, I fess up.  This is a link to a page of links.  Amanda is leaving this for us while she is away on a seafood retreat.  Sno White, please forgive me, but when you see what Amanda is offering up over there, you will understand.

Tomorrow:  Simmered Chinese Chicken


  1. Visiting from friday favorites - I love your list it all sounds delish!

  3. These recipes sound great! Especially nutella muffins! I can't buy nutella anymore because I eat the whole thing with a spoon!
