Good morning. What a nice relaxing start to this cold Friday: Fixed a cup of coffee, a bowl of grits and started browsing through the Kindle Cookbook section on my laptop. I found some great new cookbooks (and one on soap making). My daughter is going to LOVE the first book. She’s a big Hunger Games fan and had me braid her hair this morning so she can look more like Catniss. I look forward to working with her in the kitchen as we try some of the recipes from this book.
(Make sure you check it before you download. Prices can change anytime)
My daughter loves the Hunger Games books and has read all three of them multiple times. I’m sure she’ll enjoy making some of these recipes with me.
While I wouldn’t want to eat Vegan all the time, I like the idea of having some simple plant-based dishes that use up veggies from the garden, farmer’s market or what I find on sale at the grocery store.
I love sweet potatoes and really need to start cooking with them more. They are frugal, tasty and good for you. These recipes should have me well on my way to fixing more sweet taters for my family.
Eating low carb is about the only thing I can actually lose weight on. Unfortunately it can get a little pricey if you’re buying meats and fresh veggies. I tend to eat low carb for a little while and then go back to our regular beans, rice, potatoes type dishes (and promptly gain the weight back). To help me (and others) stay low carb while on a budget, I put on my thinking cap, tried some stuff and lived to write a book about it.
Apples are some of my favorite fruits. They are available year around, versatile, store well and most importantly they are cheap. Here are some of my favorite apple recipes from sweet to savory.
With Easter coming up in just a little over a week, it’s time to start planning a nice meal. I look forward to trying some of the recipes here.
I started reading through this right after eating a simple bowl of grits. Now I’m craving a nice omelet. I guess I know what we’re having for lunch
I love making stir-fry. It’s quick, simple, uses one pot and I can toss in whatever leftover veggies and meats are hanging out in the fridge. I’m looking forward to some fresh ideas and inspiration from this little cookbook.
I knew quite a few uses for apple cider vinegar and usually keep a bottle around. What surprised me is how much more I learned reading through this little e-book. Well worth the price and download.
If you’re ready to give soap making a try, this is a great reference guide to get you started. I’m waiting for a warm and sunny day to try this outside.
Don’t have a kindle? Not a problem. You can read the books on your computer and other devices. If you decide to buy one, I recommend this basic model. I’ve had one for quite some time and can highly recommend it.
I will do my best to share more free and cheap kindle books with you regularly as time permits. Subscribe to the blog or like the HBHW Facebook page to get updates each time I add more great reads.
