A Frugal Feast
lidia's kitchen

Lidia reminds viewers that cooking doesn't have to be expensive, you just have to get creative in the kitchen. Lidia shares a cost-cutting vegetarian dish, Vegetable Soup with Poached Eggs. The conversation continues with Mark, Lidia's friendly honey-maker. They discuss a traditional Italian cookie starring honey and breadcrumbs. Mark gets resourceful and stretches this dessert into two by adding them to his honey ice cream. And a simple Poached Chicken Giardiniera Salad, stretches the buck and helps create two meals out of one. The name of the game today is getting more out of every meal.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 46 seconds
