March 16,2017

We had a feast this month.  Ruby cooked Sour Cream Corn Bread, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Parmesan Kale Chips, Baked Farro and Butternut Squash and Blueberry Bran Muffins from ina garten make it ahead cookbook.

All the recipes were easy to follow and were not expensive.  Ruby gave a rating of GOOD to all but the Roasted Red Pepper Humus.  She gave that a rating of NOTHING SPECIAL.  She commented that the cookbook had a nice layout and that the Kale chips smelled awful but tasted good.

Cost per recipe is as follows:

Corn Bread- 2 loaves cost $5.24
Kale chips-serves 6- $9.98
Baked Farro and Butternut Squash-serves 6-8- $12.96
Blueberry Muffins-12 large muffins-$12.22
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus-$7.63

I cooked Granola bars, Bulgar Salad and Chicken Mac and Cheese using the Eat Well Lose Weight cookbook.

All recipes were easy to follow and not expensive.  The Granola Bars and the Bulgar Salad were VERY GOOD and the Chicken Mac and Cheese was NOTHING SPECIAL.

Cost per recipe is as follows:

Granola Bars- 18 servings-$6.21 ( I did have some of the ingredients on hand and did not figure in                                                   the cost for them, the ingredients I bought had more than I needed)
Bulgar Salad-6 servings at two wraps each- $17.89
Chicken Mac and Cheese-5 servings-$22.98
