I've started venturing into grilling & instead of cutting into the meat to see if it's done, I found a Meat Temperature Chart that you can use first. I have one of those temp. things that you poke into meat, so that will come in handy! :)
The title states how I felt when I started making a recipe & had already gone to the store, just to find out, I was out of something (happen to be garlic salt)! GRRRR! You know you've been in that situation before. There's a website called foodsubs.com which I used to make a GOOD substitute for it. In my situation, it had variations of garlic, then gave me the substitute/recipe of how to make it. If it a shot & see what you think! :) It may even save you some money!
Don't know how many calories, etc. particular dining out meals have? Try fitnesspal.com/food/search & type in the food you want to find. It will have the restaurant in paranthesis to the right of the food item. I couldn't find a particular meal on the restaurant's website & found it here (although I wish I hadn't...YIKES!)
My dad told me about this show called, Til Debt Do Us Part on CNBC. A lady helps a couple/family get their debt in control & if they follow her lessons, she gives them $5,000 to put towards paying off their bills. It's a great show bc you can pick up tips as well that will help you get control of your finances & get out of debt. Check it out! :)
Ever look in your kitchen at the random food items & not know what to cook? You probably hate to go back to the grocery store knowing you have food at home. There's a website called supercook.com, which allows you to plug in all of those foods you may have around the kitchen, then brings up recipes that use those ingredients along w/any others you may need. They aren't always healthy, but that's where your expertise (or maybe a challenge) can come in! I believe it's a great way to save food & $$
I've listed out all of my bills starting with the least amount I owe, to the most. Each month, I usually try to double my minimum payments (when possible) & work on paying the first off. Once it's paid off, then apply that amount to the next bill. You're already use to paying that bill anyways, so using it to pay off more on the next, will only get your amount paid off faster!
