Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze Donuts, Can You?

donut

A weekly dilemma (just a small dilemma) in our house is where to buy donuts. Alex loves chocolate glazed donuts, which we buy for around a buck each. We only buy 1 at a time, because they go stale fairly quickly, but that gets expensive. We would buy a dozen at Dunkin Donuts, for around 50¢ […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze Bread Crumbs, Can You?

Has this ever happened to you? You find a great deal on cartons of bread crumbs, so you stock up and put them in your pantry. Summer arrives, and when you open the box of bread crumbs, you find they are moldy. This can happen even before the date on the package. If you have read my Keys […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze A Banana, Can You?

I don’t eat fruit, a leftover habit from my Atkins Diet days. My Wife likes bananas, but Alex doesn’t list the monkey food high on her list of favorite fruits. I once purchased some marked down bananas, and prepared banana nut bread with them, but I was the only one that ate it. So the […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze Sliced Bread, Can You?

Sliced bread isn’t in much demand in our house. Alex has a sandwich 4-5 times a week for school, but other than that, we don’t eat much plain bread. It’s tough to buy 8 slices of bread, so what can we do? If you have read my Keys To Saving, you know I try to avoid […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze Frosted Cupcakes, Can You?

We ♥♥♥ cupcakes. Even those fancy $3 each cupcakes. OK, actually, I don’t ♥♥♥ cupcakes, but my Girls do. In fact, we visited the Holy Shrine of cupcakes while we were in Washington DC this past weekend, Georgetown Cupcakes. These baked morsels are so good, they have their own TV show. Of course, sometimes you […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze Cooked Pasta, Can You?

We cook pasta almost every night. Or we re-heat leftover pasta from the previous evening. Of course, sometimes you just prepare too much, or can’t use leftover pasta right away. If you have read my Keys To Saving, you know I try to avoid throwing away food. So can you freeze cooked pasta? Yes you can. Here’s how: […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze A Pineapple, Can You?

Pineapple is one of those fruits that are much less expensive to buy whole, rather than already cut into pieces. Of course, buying whole means you need to use the entire pineapple before it breaks down and spoils. If you have read my Keys To Saving, you know I try to avoid throwing away food. So […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze Wine, Can You?

We aren’t big drinkers. We don’t really drink at all, though we used to. Because of that, we don’t keep wine in the house, except cooking wine. Have you ever opened a bottle of wine, and then had to toss half the bottle because it’s lost its taste? An opened bottle of wine has about a […]

Keys To Saving: Hey, You Can’t Freeze Black Beans & Rice (Congri), Can You?

I know how to make rice. And I know how to make Cuban style black beans. I don’t know how to cook them together and  prepare Congri. Alina does though, and it’s one of her specialities. When she prepares the dish, she makes a lot of it, enough to last us a couple of Months. Just one […]
