STRETCH YOUR FOOD DOLLAR WITH WQED’S LATEST MARATHONQED COOKS: EASY RECIPES FOR THRIFTY COOKING

Host Chris Fennimore gets back to basics with budget stretchers

PITTSBURGH – Times are hard. Family budgets are stretched and cooks have to be frugal gourmets. In times like these, using simple ingredients to make nourishing and filling family meals is a must.

WQED’s Chris Fennimore takes to the kitchen to prepare recipes used by frugal gourmets for years in QED Cooks: Easy Recipes for Thrifty Cooking, a new cooking marathon, airing on WQED-TV 13.1 digital on Saturday, February 28 at 10am and repeating at 1pm.

“Our mothers and grandmothers were the original frugal gourmets,” said Chris. “We’re going to dip into that traditional kitchen wisdom and add a few new twists for Easy Recipes for Thrifty Cooking.”

Chris has collected more than 100 tips, tricks and recipes to save time and money while still creating delicious and nutritious meals. Frugal cooking techniques will include subjects like “A Chicken in Every Pot,” “Using Legumes,” “Comforting Casseroles,” “Hearty Soups,” and “Grandma’s Wisdom.”

QED Cooks: Easy Recipes for Thrifty Cooking is the 74th in a series of cooking shows produced by WQED and hosted by Chris Fennimore since 1993.
