I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

White Beans

$0.78 ($0.13 per prepared cup)

Makes about 6 cups.

2 c white beans
6 c water
6 c water
2 tsp salt

Soak beans overnight in 6 cups water. Drain in the morning. Pour beans into crock pot. Add 6 c water and 2 tsp salt. Cook on high for 4 hours.

(1 lb dried beans makes 6 pounds cooked beans)

Use in cheesy carrot soup. Blend unused beans and freeze in ice cube trays. Use blended beans in twice-baked potatoes and macaroni and cheese for extra nutrition.
