Buying Well and Eating Well

I really love to cook. It used to be mostly on the grill, but lately I’m on the stove, in the broiler, in the steamer… yeah, sometimes the microwave too, but I’ve gone way beyond just trying not to overcook some juicy marinated steaks. I try to shine at breakfast, lunch AND dinner when I have the time. Since we can’t afford a lot of fancy-schmanzy ingredients, getting great deals is also a big part of the process. I’ll share what I’ve learned about cooking and shopping to make it look like you’re 5-star (OK, maybe 4 star?) when you’re on a 2-star budget.
