In the Kitchen: Homemade!

Chocolate Black Bean Muffins
I've been slow to get back into the routine of blogging this fall after taking some time to relax this summer... Thanks for sticking with us in spite of that!!

Today I'm going to share some of our tips for saving money in the kitchen by making things at home. So many items can be made at home for a fraction of the cost and can be customized to suit tastes, while often being a healthier option. They're also delicious and make great "gifts" when you find an opportunity where you want to help someone out but don't quite know how. Dropping off fresh baked muffins, bread or a meal can be so welcome through life's transitions (births, deaths, weddings, moves and so on).
