If you cook at home, you know it can be a challenge to prepare a delicious meal while making sure you don’t break the bank. This is especially true when it comes to planning a dinner party, or impressing a significant other on a date night. How do you ensure that your guests are kept happy with yummy food that doesn’t hit you hard financially?
Try cooking simple meals that pack a punch when it comes to flavors. Stick to a simple protein like chicken or fish with vegetables on the side. You can wow your date with a decadent dessert like chocolate lava cake or red velvet cupcakes using cheap mixes. End the night with assorted fruits or a cheese platter. You’ll make a mark without burning a hole in your pocket.
