On The Cheap: Gracie's Ramen Noodles

Gracie's Ramen Noodles
I'd like to start a series called On The Cheap, occasionally featuring inexpensive, balanced and easy meals. Gracie's Ramen Noodles was the first recipe that came to mind-- you won't believe how much flavor you can get, while still being thrifty!

To (Apple)bees or Not To (Apple)bees?

That is the question. With half-priced appetizers and neon drinks for cheap, what self-respecting home cook can stand a chance against the tempting allure of the neighborhood restaurants' happy hour?

Mmm...Mmm...Good. Rediscovered and Remastered.

A mother's hug. A warm blanket. Tomato soup and grilled cheese. Pure comfort. On a rainy Spring afternoon when there is still a chill in the air, and you're soaked to the bone from running errands (or in my case, waiting outside in line at an audition for several hours), what promises a more comforting lunch than that familiar soup can with the red label? That is, until you flip the can around and actually look at the ingredients and scream in horror at the amount of sodium, which rivals your favorite chinese take-out.
