|In the Kitchen With Molly
Need a hand in the kitchen? Molly can help.
From planning meals to putting them on the table, feeding a family is a big job. In the Kitchen With Molly is the next best thing to having a personal chef.
This new E-Book contains 12 weeks of menu plans, one for each month of the year, plus shopping lists and printable recipe cards. With the planning done for you, you'll have more time to spend enjoying your family or tackling other projects that need your attention.
And with Molly, the focus is always on frugality. These recipes not only save you time, but they also save you money. Trimming dollars from the grocery bill can add up to a significant difference in the family budget, and having meals planned means you'll eat out less often. That's good for your wallet and your waistline.

Breakfast in Bed
You don't have to spend a lot of money taking your mom out to eat to make her feel special. Surprise her with breakfast in bed. Don't forget to do the dishes for her too!
Easy French Toast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
10 to 12 slices white bread
butter, maple syrup, or jam
- Break the eggs into a shallow bowl or pie plate and beat lightly with a fork. Mix in the salt and milk.
- Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and coat it with a thin layer of butter or margarine.
- Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the egg mixture letting the bread soak it up for a few seconds. Carefully turn to coat the other side.
- Place the bread slices in the skillet until the bottom is golden brown. Then, turn and brown the other side.
- Serve the french toast hot with butter and syrup, or your mom's favorite topping.
- Place the french toast on a tray with orange juice and a flower, and then take it into your mom before she wakes up!
This candlestick topiary would make a beautiful gift, and it's easy and frugal to make too! You could pick up a lot of the things you need to make it at a thrift store.
