Frugal Recipes Organic Style

Aimee’s cooking is frugal and fabulous (a little editorial by Marilyn who has tasted many of her organic creations). Here’s a whole dinner recipe from the kitchen whiz herself:

Easy Dinner Biscuits 

2 c. flour (can combine 1 c. all purpose with 1c. whole wheat.  I combine spelt with whole wheat)

¼ c. sugar  (optional)

1 Tbsp. baking powder

½ tsp. Baking soda

½ tsp. Salt

1 c. buttermilk (regular milk or almond or soy milk work fine, too)

3 Tbsp. Canola oil

2 Tbs. Vanilla extract

Preheat oven 425 degrees. Combine dry ingredients together, then add wet ingredients.  Mix with a fork until blended.  Careful not to overmix or the biscuits will be tough.  Using a couple of spoons, arrange one spoonful of dough on a greased baking sheet.  One batch makes about 12 biscuits.  Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.

Honey Mustard Chicken 

½ c. olive oil

½ c. honey

¼ c. mustard

Salt and pepper

Up to 3 lbs. Of chicken cut up into bite-sized pieces.


Preheat oven 350 degreees.  Mix first four ingredients in a bowl.  In a shallow baking dish, cover chicken evenly with sauce. Baste every 15 minutes for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until golden brown.
