21  super simple baked potato soup in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: January 12, 2010 02:37:14 PM
I love, love, love potatoes.  To heck with Adkins and South Beach Smiley  Anyway, on a cold night,  like the ones that we've been having in St Louis lately, I like to make this super easy baked potato soup.  It uses already baked potatoes, so it doesn't take long at all to make.  Love that!

For a complete recipe, see my examiner page:  http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2010m1d12-Dinner--Baked-potato-soup

Thanks for looking!

22  Lupus awareness in Stenciling: Completed Projects by hardyjenni on: December 22, 2009 12:15:45 AM
I once ran with Team In Training and loved it, but I really wish there were a running team to raise money for the Lupus Foundation of America.  Since there's not a team, I've decided to be my own team.  I'm running 50 races in 50 places (one half marathon in each state), with my first race being in Bowling Green, KY.  (see my blog for more info:  http://craftycookie.blogspot.com/)

Since there is not an organized training team, I had to make my own singlet.  This really didn't involve any fancy stencils--just simple freezer paper stencils.  But it was hard to do because of the porous, wicking fabric of the singlet.  The paint bled a bit.  However, if anyone is standing close enough to me to notice the bleeding, then they are too close Wink

Here's the front "after" shot.  You can kind of see the bleeding around the butterfly:  

here's the back:

23  National Cupcake Day! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: December 16, 2009 05:42:07 PM
Yesterday was National Cupcake Day, which I think should be a national holiday.  Anyway, in honor of National Cupcake Day, I made my favorite vanilla cupcakes.  I like homemade cupcakes--the boxed kind just tastes funny to me.  (And I HATE having boxed cupcake mixes around because I learned at the Houston Museum of Science that roaches LOVE that stuff. Ewww.)

Anyway, I forgot to take pics, but it's the same recipe that I used to make my 1-up cupcakes for Halloween.  Ignore my horrible job icing the cupcakes.  One day, I will learn to ice properly.

I posted the recipe for these moist, yummy basic vanilla cupcakes at my examiner page.  They're really easy and delicious:  http://www.examiner.com/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m12d15-National-Cupcake-Day--Vanilla-cupcakes

24  salmon patties - nice and inexpensive in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: December 15, 2009 05:58:28 PM
My husband loves salmon patties.  I had never had them until after he and I got married.  But I've since grown to like them.  Granted, I prefer my salmon miso-glazed or coated in soy sauce. 

Anyway, I posted my recipe at my examiner site.  They were good, but I'd really like them to be more flavorful.  So, if you have any suggestions, please, please let me know!   Thanks! http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m12d15-Dinner--Salmon-patties

25  Chicken soft tacos that are cheaper than Del Taco's $0.99 special! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: December 09, 2009 10:24:51 PM
So, I decided I wanted to make a chicken soft taco that was quick and easy, but cheaper and healthier than the fastfood alternative.  My tacos were bigger and better than the fastfood tacos.  And, per taco, they were $0.07 cheaper.  I was happy!

I posted my recipe on my examiner page:  http://www.examiner.com/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m12d9-Fast-food-makeover--Chicken-soft-tacos

26  healthier homemade tortillas in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: December 08, 2009 02:07:57 PM
I love, love, love fresh tortillas.  I DO NOT love the lard in them (lard = saturated fat).  So, I make mine using olive or canola oil, and they turn out yummy!  I use them for tacos, wraps, baked tortilla chips, etc.

The recipe is on my examiner page:  http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m12d8-Breads--Tortillas

27  Creamy zucchini and hummus soup to warm you up when it's cold outside! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: December 07, 2009 06:16:52 PM
It has been really, really cold.  Therefore, I've been making a lot of soups.  One of my favorite soups uses leftover hummus and zucchini.  I love both, so it's a win-win as far as I'm concerned! 

The recipe for zucchini and hummus soup is at my examiner:  http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m12d7-Dinner--Zucchini-and-hummus-soup

28  Healthy and delicious asparagus soup! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: December 01, 2009 06:26:21 PM
Aldi has frozen asparagus on sale for $1.99, so I HAD to get some today to make soup.  I love this soup--it's creamy without too much fat (no cream at all)!  Even my husband loved it!  Sorry the pic is a little blurry Sad

I've posted the recipe on my blog:  http://www.examiner.com/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m11d30-Dinner--Asparagus-soup

29  very SPICY southwest chicken stew in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: November 23, 2009 04:46:37 PM
My husband likes spicy foods.  I don't care for them as much as he does.  But when I'm congested, a little bit of spice feels wonderful.  So, last night I made some spicy southwest chicken stew.  I garnished it with crumbled tortilla chips and some reduced fat cheddar.  It was VERY spicy.  My hubby loved it.  It's also low fat and full of healthy deliciousness!

I have the recipe posted at my examiner page:  http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m11d23-Dinner--Southwest-chicken-stew

30  Pumpkin pasta in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hardyjenni on: November 22, 2009 06:37:03 PM
So, the other night I went to make pumpkin ravioli (I was cheating by using wonton wrappers as the dough instead of rolling my own!)  The filling that I made was just too moist, so I couldn't seal the raviolis well.  Instead of throwing everything I had prepped out, I decided to make a sort of deconstructed ravioli--I used the filling and mixed it with the sauce ingredients to make a pumpkin sauce.  It turned out creamy and delicious!

I've posted the recipe here:  http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-24872-St-Louis-Budget-Meals-Examiner~y2009m11d22-Dinner--Pumpkin-pasta
