    I picked a huge bowl of broccoli. I washed them like normal and did a baking soda soak like I normally do. I don't know why I do the baking soda. It seems to make me think I am washing them good. Anyway, I cooked 1/2 of the broccoli since it was so much. They were delicious. Now, I forgot to...

    OK Bah Humbug. I'll just get that off my chest now. I have never been a fan of the Santa lie, but as a parent there is no way around it. In my house, Santa has always brought 1 nice (relatively expensive) toy to each of the boys and the rest were from me. This year the kids are 6 & 8 and while...

    1.5 weeks ago I brought in a bunch of stuff to our local con. store, which I had only used once last year. She emails you that day with the listings of what things will sell for- after 60 days, if you don't pick up any unsold items, she 'donates' them, it's a written contract. Well, I waited a...

    My beans are splitting when soaked and now I am cooking them and the skins are coming off some. They are not expired. They are black beans. I used the two-day soak method I learned from youtube. Are the skins supposed to come off and will the beans split?

    I wonder if this is happening to anyone else or, if not, what I might do to correct it if it's a problem on my end. Whenever I come to Frugal Village, I click on New Posts and always get a message something like: "This forum requires that you wait 5 seconds between searches." This is when I...
