Easy Homemade White Chocolate Mocha Recipe

Nov 18, 2013

Incredibly easy homemade white chocolate mocha recipe! Only takes 3 ingredients and 5 minutes.

My absolute favorite coffee drink is a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks. So good, but so expensive! So, I set out to find a way to make it at home – without spending a ton of time or buying specialty ingredients.

This recipe only requires THREE simple ingredients – coffee, white chocolate chips, and milk!

I use coconut milk for mine but you can use any kind of milk or a combo of milk and cream. Just use what you prefer or have on hand.

I won’t lie and say this tastes *exactly* like the Starbucks version, but it is really good and the price difference is worth the taste difference!

You can save the extra milk mixture in the fridge and just reheat when you need it.

I don’t know exactly how much it costs to make this, but I’d estimate that it’s about 1/4 the price of a coffee shop white mocha!

Frozen Pizza Alternative – Homemade Pizza Kits

Oct 17, 2013

These homemade pizza kits are great to have on hand for those nights when you don't feel like cooking!

In my search for a good pizza dough recipe I came across the idea to make pizza kits from Life as Mom.  I thought it was simply brilliant!  I always prefer homemade pizza, but usually when I want pizza I am not in the mood to make the dough. So store-bought frozen pizzas usually win.

A pizza kit is basically a large freezer bag that contains smaller bags of the following: homemade pizza dough, chopped veggies, shredded cheese, and meat toppings.  You can add sauce also, but I haven’t yet gotten into making my own sauce since I regularly get jarred sauce pretty cheap with coupons.

For this particular baking day, I chose to make 4 pizza kits that included pepperoni, diced green bell peppers and red onions, and mozzarella cheese along with my dough.  I did not have pepperoni on hand at the time, so I added some salsa chicken to demonstrate in the picture for you.

These homemade pizza kits are great to have on hand for those nights when you don't feel like cooking!

It’s just so cool!  This will make homemade pizza almost as easy to fix as a store-bought frozen pizza.  Great for pizza nights, lazy nights, or just plain ‘ole pizza craving nights!

Easy Texas Chili Recipe

Sep 5, 2013

This recipe for Texas Chili is easy, delicious, and frugal! It will warm you up on a chilly fall day!

Chili is one of our family’s favorite cool-weather meals. It’s delicious, easy to make, and best of all – frugal. My husband is actually our chili chef and he agreed to share his recipe with you all!

This chili recipe is EXTREMELY easy and requires only a few ingredients – which is probably why we love it so much! This amount will last our family at least a couple of days. If you don’t think your family would eat this much, you can always freeze the extra for a quick meal at a later time.
