12 recipes that almost all have a number in the title. I didn’t aim for that. I aimed for low cost recipes here or things I know are typically found at food pantries.

  1. 6 Ways to Upgrade Instant Ramen – Budget Bytes – these are simple and great ideas for dressing up instant ramen. My husband could write an instant ramen cookbook. He’s done some great things w/ random canned veggies we get from the food pantry.

  2. 10 New and Exciting Uses for Canned Beets – oh,these are all so good. I love beets,though.

  3. Dirt Cheap Easy Sweet and Sour Meatball Stir Fry – Budget101.com – I actually made this awhile ago using all food pantry stuff and didn’t have my act together enough to do a Pantry Anarchy post and now I don’t remember what I did but I know it involved a can of crushed pineapple & the juice in the sauce.

  4. Don’t Toss the Pickle Brine! (And 7 Byproducts as Good as Their Products) -good food recycling

  5. 6 Sweet & Savory Ways to Use Applesauce – we have applesauce in abundance here from the Backpack Program. Can’t wait to try some of these ideas, especially for the boys’ snacks.

  8. warm lentil and potato salad | smitten kitchen – I make a lot of meals with lentils and they are honestly not my kids’ fave but they ate them this way

  9.  14 Recipes that Celebrate the Humble Spud – I need not say more here

  10. 23 Recipes That Celebrate the Humble Bean– Because when beans are poor people food, you have to have as many way to cook them as you can so no one gets sick and tired of eating beans

  11. 10 Must-Make Macaroni Salad Recipes– I honestly don’t see a lot of revolutionary differences between these recipes but I can’t wait for summer and macaroni salad reminds me of summer
