Did you know that this summer, meat, poultry, and fish prices spiked to an all-time high?
That the average grocery bill for a family of four went up 38% between 2003 and 2013?
That 8 out of 10 Americans eat fast food at least once a month? Most doing so for the convenience and low cost?
Frightening? Yes. But Jessica Fisher’s new cookbook, Good Cheap Eats, is here to make home-cooked meals easy and affordable again!

Preseason football games have started, which means tailgating season is finally upon us!

If we’re being honest, I have never actually been to an NFL game, but I have done my fair share of tailgating at other minor-league events. I LOVE appetizers and typical tailgating food. I mean, my favorite part of Thanksgiving isn’t the real dinner, but the cheese and crackers and dips and spreads and mini hot dogs that we eat beforehand while we’re waiting for the turkey to finish roasting.

August 19th is National Potato Day, also known as the most important day of the year. I’m going to petition the government to make it a national holiday—I only need 100,000 signatures for the White House to look at it. All businesses and schools should be closed. Flags should fly at half mast. The president should pardon an especially large potato as the rest of us feast on its fried, mashed, and baked potato brothers and sisters. Hopefully, these wild ramblings will make it clear how much I love potatoes.
Originally cultivated by the Inca in Peru around 8000 B.C.E. to 5000 B.C.E., the Spanish Conquistadors brought the potato back to Europe in the 1500s. It spread throughout the rest of the European continent over the next four decades. European farmers found that potatoes were easier to grow than other staple crops, like wheat or barley, and they provided more sustenance.
