If you're like us, you set a strict budget for the holiday season and it promptly got thrown out the window... and now
our your bank balance is hurting. An easy save-money solution is to cook at home, but if your palate is used to the high life, the thought of tuna noodle casserole and meatloaf has you cringing. Alana Kaufman & Alex Small's (They also run the cooking blog Two Fat Als. ) new cookbook, The Frugal Foodie Cookbook: 200 Gourmet Recipes for Any Budget ($11) has fabulous gourmet recipes that'll have your mouth thinking you're at a four star restaurant. We're eyeing the Apricot Brandy Baked French Toast and the Chicken with Figs and Rosemary Wine Sauce...evidently, if you put booze in something, we love it. The authors also include tips for thrifty shopping and what to keep on hand for a frugal foodie pantry, so you can make meals without going to the store every day. Bon appétit!
