I sub chicken broth for homemade chicken stock or use bullion (because it's cheap and you can't taste the difference I swear)

You can use pretty much any cheese you like. The white cheese I use is very sharp. It isn't as sharp at the end with everything mixed with it.

What a homemade pizza night, we do that. I have an easy delicious recipe if you would like it let me know :) We love them. We spend time making the pizzas and when they are in the oven cooking, we all clean up the kitchen together, then we put out a big blanket on the floor in the living room have a carpet picnic and cuddle and watch a movie ♥ We have a blast ♥

I would love to try that broccoli cheese soup but unfortunatly we dont get cheddar here...the swiss dont like cheddar because it apparently doesnt taste like anything to them.I wonder if it would work with Gouda,i thinks its the mildest cheese we get here.

I would put either ham or bacon in that queen!

The brocolli soup is funny because my almost 3 year old will only eat it if I use white cheese. It's not like she doesn't like cheddar... Its much harder to hide carrots in it if it's white cheese.

Oh and another thing, if you can invest in a bread machine it will save you so much money. I use mine weekly, and I buy bread for sandwiches. Cinnamon rolls, bread sticks, garlic bread, dinner rolls, banana bread, those sorts of things it will save so much money just doing it in there. Most things have a little lee-way that you can put it on dough cycle and leave for work and come back and it will be fine to use.

I make massive amounts of things like pretzels and cinnamon rolls at once and freeze them for later use. My kids love having pretzels with soup.

Tonight, we're having chicken and dumplings another cheap and easy dinner

I like cauliflower Mac and cheese bake. Not the healthiest but a bit more healthy than just Mac and cheese.

So you cut your cailflower into small florets and boil it with your macaroni. While it's boiling, place a bowl over top of the pot to make a double boiler - and add a scoop of butter. Let it melt and add a scoop of flower and whisk until it thickens then add shredded cheese. You can also add spices at this point - like ground mustard , garlic powder, cayenne pepper - whatever you like. Add a scoop of sour cream or plain yogurt. Whisk as it melts. If needed, add some water from the pot. Drain noodles and cauliflower and mix in sauce. Serve as is, or bake in a pan with more cheese and bread crumbs on top.
Serve with salad :)

Broccoli cheese soup sounds good. We sometimes make a huge pot full of minestrone soup,it has rice and noodles in it so it fills quite well. If you all like eggs Curried eggs with rice isnt so expensive and tastes real good.

What type of recipes are you looking for? It will depend if there are special diets. Glucose, dairy, vegetarian/vegan, low fat, low carb. Or are you looking for something quick and easy, maybe cheap?

If you're looking for cheap there are a few groups on facebook. The one I joined is $10 meals. Some of the stuff looks a little gross to me but others have good ideas. The truth is most of their meals only feed 3-4 people so modification is needed for a larger family. The truth is the cheapest, albeit unhealthy, way to keep that many people fed for cheap is carbs. Rice, noodles, potatoes, ect.

Another good way, if you can get them to eat it- soups or beans are cheap to make. Many nights I'll make a heavy soup like broccoli cheese soup and then you just add a bread to it and everyone is happy and fed.
