Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

Have you started planning side dishes for the 4th of July yet? This Sweet & Savory Broccoli Salad is perfect to add, as you can make it ahead of time and it will be all ready to go before the fireworks begin. And, since both Publix & Kroger (my two most frequented stores) both have bacon and mayonnaise on sale this week, it's a good time to stock up.
