I’m a cheater. I love a good short cut.
It’s not that I don’t like to cook. I think cooking is fun.
It’s just that I don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it on a weeknight, after a long day of school and work and laundry and errands… You know the drill.
What I do want, is to be able to make a healthy dinner for my family to share together at the end of the day. In order to do that on a consistent basis, I’m always looking for a few good cheats.
For the month of October, we’re going to be participating in the popular “31 Days” series that The Nester started a few years ago. We’ll be posting 7 days a week and each post will include a cheat for you; a way for you to speed your cooking process.
Our schedule will stay largely the same, with Free Menus + Grocery Lists, Ingredient Spotlight and lots of recipes, but our goal is to provide a good short cut idea in each post.
If you’d like even more Kitchen Tips, check out Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. She’s been sharing all kinds of great tips from a fast way to make pancakes to how to remove apple wax and more.
If you’ve ever thought about working online as a virtual assistant, here’s a great short cut for you. My VA, Lisa Morosky has written an excellent guide to becoming a VA yourself. The Bootstrap VA can be had for just $12.99.
We focused on one of my favorite cheats this week in Ingredient Spotlight: Frozen Dough. There’s still time to add your recipes. Here are a few that have already linked up that caught my eye:
Tomato Bacon Basil Pizza Rolls from The Sweets Life look amazing.
Chocolate Caramel Stuffed Monkey Bread from Candy Girl is a delicious twist on a classic.
Sausage Stuffed Loaf from Once a Month Mom is a fun freezer meal.
I hope you have a great weekend!
