This week’s Saver Tips

  • Thinking of starting a Fall garden?  It’s a great feeling to use home grown produce in your recipes!  Kasey has some great  Vegetable Garden Basics, tips all gardeners should know.
  • It’s only a couple week into school, but you’re probably already looking for new lunch ideas for the kids.  I love Lindsays Lunchbox Makeover- Peanut Butter and Jelly Crepes.  Might even have to make a few extra for myself!
  • Thanks to a huge crop of zucchini this summer, I do have breakfast covered for a few weeks.  Check out my Classic Zucchini Bread Recipe.  It works great as muffins and they freeze well too!
