Creamed Spinach Parmesan Cups Easy Creamed Spinach With White Sauce Recipe
Remember earlier I mentioned that 49% of the dollar spent on food is shared in the restaurant industry? That is a lot of dough that one can save! Money or the spending of it is actually how and why I began to take note of these restaurant imitation recipes. I have been reviewing our family spending habits and when looking at groceries vs. dining I was actually pretty shocked. Dining out has become a habit for us and while it is one that we do enjoy it is also one that has been adding up significantly. This is what started that flickering of the old light bulb for myself and my family. I consider myself to be in that DIY group of people on a number of things and while I have come to enjoy doing many things myself (Not all of the time mind you.) I realize the impact of learning how to do something yourself can and has saved me a good amount of money.
First the recipe box or book can get lost. This is especially true after moving from one residence to the next. Also a recipe box or book can be destroyed due to fire or water. And once its gone its gone forever. But there is another method of safe-guarding your recipes for the long term: an electronic recipe keeper. And when I say "electronic recipe keeper" I am not referring to the cheap poor quality ones that you can buy for a few bucks. Those are like the personal organizers that were popular a few years back. Modern electronic recipe keepers are far superior. One major difference from the previous versions (and the main benefit over recipe boxes and books) is the ability to store a back up copy of all of your recipes online. So even if your electronic recipe keeper were to get destroyed or stolen all of your recipes would still be safe. Sure youd have to purchase a new electronic recipe keeper but youd have access to all of your beloved recipes. But having all of your recipes backed up isnt the only benefit.
Now you can just Google it and hundreds of recipes come up. Many recipes come with ratings and comments from readers who have made the recipe and improved on it. This makes it much easier for you to make your own version of that recipe! The low carb diet is no different from other diets in this regard. Thousands if not millions of low carb recipes are readily available online. A quick Google or Yahoo! search will reveal all that you need to know. If youre looking for good low carb breakfast foods then just Google that phrase. Many larger websites even have different types of recipes broken down into different categories. So breakfast foods may be an entire page by itself with lists of different types of recipes. Ive found some of my favorite breakfast foods this way. For example I was just browsing through someones dieting blog when I came across a photo of a bacon egg bake. It looked delicious and the recipe was easy to follow. You basically just wrap a piece of cooked bacon around the inside of a muffin pan then crack an egg inside it.
