I've often been accused of having just that... "Champagne Tastes and a Beer Budget." This little corner of the web will be home to recipes, tips, and money-saving strategies that I have had success with while living on one income in a world that says it can't be done. :)

Recipe : Old Fashioned Baked Beans
Another baked-beans recipe. Hubby asked if I could find out his mom's recipe... come to find out it's not a secret family recipe or anything like that - it's the recipe on the back of a bag of Thompson's white pea beans from good ol' Newfoundland. The link is here: http://www.tidespoint.com/food/beans.shtml
Old-Fashioned Baked Beans 1 lb (454g) Thompson's White Pea Beans 4 cups cold water 1 onion sliced 1/2 tbsp. salt 2 tsp cider vinegar 1/2 tsp prepared mustard 1 tbsp brown sugar 1/4 cup molasses 1/2 cup tomato ketchup pinch black pepper Add water as needed 1/4 salt pork or bacon, sliced Soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain Pick and rinse beans. Add 4 cups cold water, cover, heat to boiling, simmer 30 minutes. Drain. Place onion slices in bottom of 6 cup casserole. Mix seasonings and turn into pot. Add beans, and water to cover. Arrange pork slices on top. Cover and bake in oven (250°) for 7 hours. When the beans are tender, remove 1 cup of beans, mash, then stir back into pot carefully. Cover and continue to bake. Add water as needed to keep beans just covered. One hour before serving remove cover to darken beans.
