I may be a sweet Georgia peach, but I love myself some spicy food! 🙂 When I found this recipe, it looked to be just hot enough to give it some twang without setting the ol’ tastebuds on fire. Half of the ingredients have coupons available right now. Most cooks I know keep hot sauce and onions on hand, anyway, so it’s awesome for the budget cook, too! Please vote in my poll before you drool over the recipe. 🙂 Coupons at the end…

I love the kind of meal you can throw together all in one dish. It means less clean-up and it’s easier to keep an eye on one dish while watching my munchkins destroy the housecleaning I just finished than it is to babysit multiple fancy dishes. I can do it, but the headache is sometimes not worth it or I just plain don’t have time to do that and everything else I’ve got going on. With a nice coupon available right now for sausage, and taters always being cheap, this Sausage Potato Dinner in a Dish fits right in with my laidback frugal mommy vibe. My family also has a super duper sweet tooth, so if I find a simple dessert that uses ingredients I usually have on hand, I’m tickled pink. With strawberries being in season right now, they are always in my fridge, so the Strawberry Yogurt Pastries were perfect for this time of year!
I’m putting the savings information after the recipes. There are double savings this time, which makes this a really sweet deal! 😉

If you’re like me, a slow cooker is your best friend! I received a slow cooker (aka crockpot) as a wedding present. We use it so frequently that it never gets put up in the pantry with all of my other bulky kitchen gadgets, unless we are prettifying the house for company. Since I’m not only busy, but habitually frugal, I love finding delicious dinners that can be quickly thrown together in the crockpot and hardly cost a thing. That kind of meal makes me happy on many levels! It satisfies my love of all things yummy, simplifies my life, and keeps my purse a little fuller. What more could a girl ask for?
This recipe is super simple and should be a hit with adults and kiddos alike. Are you ready for this? It is Slow Cooker Pizza!! On the count of three, we all say “YUM!!!” 1, 2, 3….YUM!!! Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system… 😉
There are a few coupons available for the ingredients in this recipe, so that spices things up a bit, too. Link and savings will be after the recipe…
