Oh, you wily, clever cooks! In a year of unprecedented inflation and soaring food costs, you didn’t let it keep you down. Instead, you turned to pasta, grains, and legumes to make ends meet with class and taste. And when I crunched the numbers, some of the dishes you made this year cost less than sixty cents a serving. Bravo!
When the craving for protein struck, you snapped up cheap cuts of beef–specifically chuck–as well as pork and chicken. (And I’m thrilled that the creamy French chicken stew from one of our very own recipe testers, Mardi Michels, made your top-ten list.)
Although you were willing to cut back this year, you weren’t about to forgo dessert. In 2022, you reached for treasured classics–tiramisu and icebox cakes–which called for premade ingredients, making them easier and, yes, less expensive.
And my Portuguese peeps! You did me proud by choosing to make your own chouriço sausage. It’s that kind of do-it-yourself attitude that characterized so many cooks this past year.
I hope things turn around for all of us in 2023. But whatever happens, I know you’ve got this.
Happy New Year to you and yours!

Creamy Pork and Egg Noodles
This pork and egg noodles was delicious and so easy and fast! Love the Boursin for a creamy sauce. Everyone gobbled this up. Lucky for me there was just enough left over for my lunch tomorrow.kathy
Homemade Portuguese Chouriço
Superfood Breakfast Cookies
I made these breakfast cookies this weekend and they are great. I followed the recipe except I added some dried blueberries, raisins and toasted chopped walnuts, and I made them smaller – probably between 1 and 2 tablespoons.
I wanted to use them as a mid-morning snack at work. I froze them and I’ll just take one out each day to tuck into my lunch bag. The one I had today with my tea was perfect!amy
Creamy French Chicken Stew
Even though it’s not winter, made this creamy French chicken stew and we enjoyed it. Planned it so we could have it as a planned leftover later in the week. Perfect. Used rice for a change from my love of potatoes.carlin
