KitchenPC: Free Help When The Cupboard is [Almost] Bare!


Stretch your grocery budget with help from KitchenPC.com. This free website - still in beta mode - helps you find recipes based on the ingredients you have in your kitchen at any given time.

Click on the 'Meal Planner' tab, and enter each food item you have on hand, one at a time. After you have entered all the ingredients, recipe suggestions are instantly displayed. So you just might discover a fabulously delicious dinner idea for your family tonight without having to spend another dollar at the grocery store.

But I have to admit that even though it is so helpful to get a recipe instantly using the remnants of my kitchen cupboards, what is really fun about this website is the option to have recipes read out loud to you! Yep, step by step instructions are read aloud as you cook! You will need to download the free browser extension, Firesay, to enable this option. But once you get it set up, it is so much fun to use! (You can read more about Firesay Here.)

Want more free features you say?? Here are a couple more: you can also add your own favorite recipes to the site, create recipe-generated printable shopping lists, and create your own monthly meal planning and shopping calendars.

Definitely worth a look-see! Check it out at www.KitchenPC.com.

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.

Home Made Halloween Costumes

Halloween is around the corner...so time to start cooking up some Halloween costumes you can make from home and save money while treating your little ghosts and goblins to a fun night!

This idea came from Kaboose.com-- I just changed a couple of things, but basically the costume idea is the same.

Home Made Spider Costume

Needed:
long sleeve black top/shirt
4 long black socks
newspaper, grocery bags, paper bags, or anything else you can use to stuff the socks with
a black knit cap
black yarn

Stuff each sock with paper or bags or filling of some sort.

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…
